Sam Stops

After living in London and then Melbourne for nearly a decade, Sam returned home to his town of birth, Hobart. He has settled in Tasmania with his wife, where they enjoy the beautiful food, wine and wilderness the island has to offer. Their dog is never far away. Sam enjoys writing when the moment takes him, which gives him a creative break from a procedure-driven career in science, and serves as president of the Hobart chapter of the Tough Guy Book Club.
