Samantha Lin was born in Shanghai, China, and grew up in Sydney, Australia. Throughout her thirty-odd years, she has been an accountant, bartender, English tutor, piano teacher, and Sailormoon. She holds a double BSc/BA (UNSW) in Psychology, Japanese, and English; an MA (Dunelm) in Romantic and Victorian Literary Studies; and a PhD (QUB) in English literature, specialising in Shakespeare film adaptations.
Her poetry and prose have been published in numerous editions of the UNSWeetened Literary Journal, and her short story “Lily of the Valley” won NCLA‘s 2012 UK International Students’ Short Story Competition.
She is the lead writer and spokesperson of the indie games-development group, Tea For Three Studios. Consequently, she is responsible for every written word (and typo) you see in the Regency-set visual novel, Regency Love.
Her Regency Love spin-off novel, Lady Lavender, is now available on Amazon.
She is currently the principal and director of Shakespeare Academy, a premium English tuition service in Sydney, Australia. She is always thinking about updating this site, but is often distracted by everything ranging from Tchaikovsky to Pokémon Go.
