Samantha Sheridan found her love for the outdoors and
horses growing up on a farm. Samantha remembers the
stories of being watched over by an older Indian chief in the
Colorado onion and sugar beet fields, with her brother. At the
age of six, the family moved back to her grandparent’s farm
in West Central Ohio and at seven years old her father
bought her a dapple gray pony. Later Samantha rode her
friend’s horse, granddaughter of Sea Biscuit. Through high
school and college Samantha found communications was a
talent she excelled at. With a major in communications at
Wright State University, Samantha became an on air radio
personality and then moved to editor for one of the local
newspapers, where Sheridan found her love of writing. A
Silver Heart was created with Samantha’s love of horses and
her dream of having a public relations job. At the time
Samantha was writing the book she was also a 4-H horse
advisor, so several of her 4-H members are used in the book.
Pete Oen was just starting out as a horse trainer in the 90’s
and is one of the biggest barrel horse trainers in the United
States now. Samantha used Pete in her book as one of the
trainers and she continues to work with him today.
Still living in rural Ohio Samantha continues her writing
and promoting her books. Life experiences are adding to the
notebooks for future books.
Samantha is currently working on the sequel.
