Sammi Spizziri


Sammi Spizziri writes YA contemporary from a small town in Illinois. She grew up in Ohio, where she earned a business degree from Bowling Green State University and became a CPA. While the Midwest feels like home, she has enjoyed studying abroad in Spain and interning at a record label in Nashville and continues to love exploring new places. When she’s not lost in writing (or reading) a new book, she’s a stay-at-home mom who may enjoy library story time more than her kids. Love stories, rec league volleyball, and chai lattes are a few of her favorite things. Sammi is repped by Jacqui Lipton.


Favorite Quote: “There is something in us, as storytellers and as listeners to stories, that demands the redemptive act, that demands that what falls at least be offered the chance to be restored.” —Flannery O’Connor
