Get to know Samantha...

Birthdate? 10/20. All my birthday cakes were Halloween cakes. 
When did you start writing? I don't know. I've always been scribbling something, but it took a long time for me to realize I could put words on paper (or later, pixelize) and try to get people to read them.
When and what and where did you first get published? My first "real "publication, just as I sort of gave up on sending work out, was a poem, "Abduction," to Weird Tales. Many years later, when I decided to send out work again, I was lucky enough to get almost instantaneous acceptances to the then-fairly-newish Strange Horizons and the much-missed Fortean Bureau. That was encouraging enough that I didn't give up while I racked up (and still rack up) the rejections! 
What themes do you like to write about? It's hard for me to determine if my work is thematic. A friend of mine said that a lot of my work is about "sympathy for the monster," whereas I think I write a lot about people, who are all generally monsters of sort, trying to be good, and not always being successful.
