As a writer for online publications like ScaryMommy and Pittsburgh Mom Collective, Samantha Westerlund shares authentically about the joys and struggles of being a working mother in a non-traditional family living in suburban America. 

Samantha lives in Pittsburgh, PA with her husband and three sons. She's also a stepmother to her husband's two sons from his previous marriage and a mother-in-law to their wives. Samantha's background is in public education and real estate; she rediscovered her childhood passion for writing after the birth of her children.

WHO WE BECOME is her debut novel, inspired by her own life experience.
