Introduction: Thanks for inviting me over Russell. I’d like to say hello to your readers. I’m Samantha Fury of the Street Justice Series. I write under two genres, and two names. Since I turned eight years old I’ve been a Christian and writing. I love to talk about writing and my babies, they’re dogs but don’t tell them, they think they’re human. In the picture above you will find my two babies. Jack and Max the smaller one as most of my fans will know is Jack.
Question: What do you think prepared you or qualifies you to write in your chosen genre?
I also write what I call life fiction, it’s categorized under suspense/mystery/romance, but it’s more about life in general. I don’t like the term women’s fiction, because I feel that I write for men too. I’ve been told it’s like law and order without courtroom scenes, but with kissing. I love delving into what we as Christian’s face on a day to day basis and letting people see that you can live the life of a Christian in any and every circumstance.

Question: Tell us a little about your “real” (Non-writing) life — family, job, and church life. Does it give you inspiration for your writing?
Question: Tell us about things you enjoy — what you do for fun or personal satisfaction?
Question: Since you have several books out, tell us what you think works for promotion. What are your thoughts on ebooks versus print books and different ways to let people know about you and your books?
Promoting books takes time and money, both things that most don’t have a lot of these days. I allow my books to promote themselves. I place adds in the back of each book telling readers about my other books. I use my blog, Samantha Fury Land of Writing, to help promote myself as an author and I use, Facebook, my websites, and word of mouth. As for e books and paperbacks I love both. I love my kindle and text to speech, but there are times you just want to hold a book, so I think there will always be a place for both.
Question: Tell us one place you visited or person you met, that made a big impression on you, and why.
While traveling over this great country, I’ve met Cowboys, truckers, Indians, and people from other countries. George who was from Greece comes to mind. As far as places go I just can’t name one. This country we live in is so amazingly beautiful, everything from the badlands of Texas, to the huge mountains of Montana, to Maine and the coastline, even to New York City and the crazy traffic and our beloved Twin Towers. I’ve been so blessed to see it all, and I thank God for the life he’s given me, and I can’t wait to see what he does next.
Question: Share something that’s amazing, touching, or that makes you angry.
Question: What’s the worst trouble you ever had with getting a book written (plots, finding needed information, getting a cover done)?
Crossing state lines to do police work was an issue once. I’m always beating up my Main Mc, Angel Morganson, and having to do hours and hours of research on the effects of his injuries. Angel is an undercover detective, he’s always getting into a drug bust, or a crime wave, and I’m running to google to solve some problem.
Question: What is your current WIP?
Question: How many books do you have out?
Question: What are your future projects?
I also hope to keep working on what we’re now calling the CIA Network, it’s our Christian Indie Authors Groups on Facebook. It’s a great group of Christian Authors, we have everything from editing groups, cover design, a website, a forum, a readers group. You name it and if we don’t have it, we soon will. It’s a large growing group and I think it’s going to be a great ministry in helping Christian Authors be a light in a dark place.
A Thank You!

Thanks Russell for the interview I had a great time answering the questions. I hope your readers enjoy the talk we had. If anyone has any direct questions please feel free to post and I’ll do my best to answer.
Have a blessed day.
Thank You Samantha. I enjoyed doing the interview and hope my readers will be blessed with your answers.
I enjoyed this interview very much! As a dog lover, reader, writer, and believer, it’s always fun to “meet” others with similar interests.
Thanks Joy. Glad you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed doing it.
Thanks very much. My boys love for me to talk about them. I need to include them more in my writing. Thanks again for dropping by.
Hello Samantha, I very much enjoyed your interview. I too am a dog (and cat and other animal) lover as well as a believer, writer and publisher.
May God continue to bless your efforts.
