Unveiling the Writer

Ever since he was a teenager, Sam wanted to write novels. For decades, ideas for plot lines and characters invaded his mind. Occasionally, he would write down an idea or two but using the normal excuses, too busy with work, too tired, not enough time, he successfully procrastinated for almost 40 years. Eventually, a challenge from a mentor got him started. Nearly three years later, after learning his craft, Sam had created Hiatus. 

Sam specializes in writing thrillers with a hint of science fiction to create a unique genre with memorable characters to enhance his stories.

Sam Polakoff is the third-generation owner of a supply chain engineering and technology company called Nexterus. 

He lives with his wife, Denise, in the sleepy hamlet of Forest Hill, Maryland, the same community where they raised their amazing kids, Ryan and Leah.
