Samantha Wood, author

In February 2019, I started my own publishing company, Magpie Tree Press, so that I could publish and develop my own books for Australian and international markets and, eventually, for the screen. I love storytelling and how it can transport readers to another time and place, and love incorporating the natural environment into all my stories.


But most of all, I love meeting readers during my author talks and book signings where I get the chance to travel around the country, visiting libraries far and wide to I talk about the writing process, what I've learned since starting my own imprint, and sharing tips and tricks for aspiring authors in the audience. It really is true that there is a book in all of us.


Magpie Tree Press acknowledges the people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the place where I live and set my stories.
