Samantha Lee was born in Londonderry and studied at Newry Grammar School and London's Central School of Speech and Drama before embarking on a career in Light Entertainment. For fifteen years she travelled the world, singing in six languages, before leaving show business to concentrate on her writing. In the early eighties she added another string to her bow, as a trainer and exercise consultant, running her 'Shape-up Studio' in-house at the Aberdeen Petroleum Club for twelve years. Sam currently lives in Wales but still travels widely for both business and pleasure.
