About the Author
----------------

R J Samuel was born in Nigeria, to Indian parents. She spent many years qualifying to be a medical doctor
first in Nigeria, then Ireland, but ran away from home to do a Masters in IT. She settled on IT as a career rather than
Medicine as she thought computers might be more logical than people, but that hasn’t always proven to be the case. She
remained Ireland for many years, apart from a few years in the southwest of France where she ran a restaurant-bar
despite having absolutely no interest in restaurants, except for eating in them. She considers herself almost Irish,
almost Indian, and almost American. She now lives in Atlanta in America where, in her latest creative outburst, she
wants to establish an artist retreat in a mostly unusable property. Her story ‘Helmets’ was shortlisted for the 2011
Over the Edge ‘New Writer of the Year Competition’ and she was the only entrant to have both her fiction and her poetry
long-listed for the Doire Press ‘1st Annual International Fiction and Poetry Chapbook Competition’ in January 2012. Her
fiction entry, ‘The Vision Painter,’ went on to be shortlisted for this competition and was the basis for her second
novel, ‘Falling Colours – The Misadventures of a Vision Painter.’ Her short stories ‘Parallel Lives’ (2012) and ‘The
Alleyway’ (2013) were shortlisted and her poetry entry was longlisted (2016) for the Over the Edge ‘New Writer of the
Year Competition’. Her published novels – ‘Heart Stopper’, The Vision Painter series (‘Falling Colours’, ‘Casting
Shadows’) which received an Honorable Mention in the 2013 Rainbow Awards, and ‘A Place Somewhere’, which was a finalist
for the Ann Bannon Popular Choice and the Tee Corinne Cover Design Awards, are set in Ireland, India, and America. ‘An
Outsider Inside’ is her fifth novel.
