Meet the Team – Sammy Todd March 18, 2019 – Posted in: Blog, Our Team
Sammy Todd is the newest recruit to the English Book Centre, revisiting steps from 30 years ago when she was a student doing her I.B. at the CIV and an avid customer for syllabus-required reading.
Having studied English, Drama, and Classics at Manchester University, she worked in Film and Television for 20 years before globe-trotting to a paradise island in Brazil, falling in love and returning to the UK with a husband, child and samba-reggae drumming troop! She gave up her career in Media to become a full-time mother and after a dismal attempt at being a Brazilian wife, turned one of her many passions into a full-time job as a florist in London’s fashionable Notting Hill. She has been writing a novel for 20 years, her life forever in pursuit of the ‘peace and quiet’ required to write it and if you find her weeping in a corner of the shop surrounded by incredible novels and literature citing the mantra……”If they can do it, so can I!”…..chances are, she still has not made much progress beyond Chapter 8!!!
