Co-founder of BookBuzz, SAMANTHA STROH BAILEY has been a writer ever since she could pick up a pen. In fact, she even sent her first manuscript, Freddy the Flame, to publishers when she was ten years old. Sadly, it was rejected, but a lifelong passion to write was born.
A published author and journalist, she is also a professional writer/editor and owns Perfect Pen Communications. Her work has appeared in Now Magazine, The Village Post, Oxford University Press, Abilities Magazine, Kobo Writing Life and many other publications, and she was one of Kobo Writing Life’s writers-in-residence at BEA 2013. Samantha also has a Master of Education in Applied Linguistics that looks great on her wall. Okay, in a box in her basement. The author of Finding Lucas, Samantha is also co-editor of the fiction anthology A Kind of Mad Courage to which she contributed the short story “Hide and Seek.” She lives in Toronto with her husband and two children.

Can you ever really go back to the past?
After five long years of living with Derek, her former bad-boy-turned-metrosexual boyfriend, Jamie Ross finally reaches her breaking point. She’s had enough of his sneering disdain for her second hand wardrobe, unusual family and low-paying job as the associate producer of Chicago’s sleaziest daytime talk show. When her new boss plans a segment on reuniting lost loves, Jamie remembers Lucas, her first love and the boy she’d lost ten years earlier. Spurred on by her gang of quirky friends, Jamie goes on a hilarious, disastrous and life changing hunt to track Lucas down. But are some loves best left behind?
