ENTREPRENEUR AND HOLLYWOOD EXEC SAMANTHA HART’S DEBUT MEMOIR – LOS ANGELES BOOK FESTIVAL AWARD WINNER – OUT NOW
THE INCREDIBLE TRUE STORY OF ESCAPING CHILDHOOD ABUSE, SELF-DISCOVERY THROUGH GLOBE-TROTTING ADVENTURES, AND THE RESILIENCY TO BUILD SUCCESS AND STABILITY IN LIFE AND LOVE
HOLLYWOOD CA, JUNE 8, 2021…In her debut memoir, entrepreneur and Hollywood executive Samantha Hart reveals the abuses and traumas that she overcame to build a creative, successful, and love-filled life. BLIND PONY As True A Story As I Can Tell (Wild Bill Publishing) was released on March 15, 2021, and is a 2021 Los Angeles Book Festival award winner.
BLIND PONY As True A Story As I Can Tell illuminates Sam’s remarkable ability to be honest and vulnerable about horrific experiences while infusing her unique brand of humor and being relentlessly hopeful. Her story starts with a heart-wrenching childhood of abuse that she endured by her grandfather, which led to her life as a runaway teen and landed her in 1970s Los Angeles. She navigates various abusive relationships, toxic Hollywood characters, a search for her father, “Wild Bill,” and ultimately finds her North Star.
“Almost no one in my life, including long-time friends and colleagues, knew about the trauma I experienced as a young girl. I always managed to overcome adversity throughout my life, maintain a positive outlook, and do well for myself. But deep inside, I felt damaged. In telling my story now and hearing from readers, I realize there are a lot of “blind ponies” out there. If my story resonates for even one person and helps to provide some hope for healing, it was worth writing,” says Sam.
Sam is currently working on adapting BLIND PONY As True A Story As I Can Tell for TV/film while writing her next book, a novel entitled Starcrossed, and a collection of drawings and stories called When I Was A Muse.
BLIND PONY As True A Story As I Can Tell is now available on Amazon and at bookstores everywhere.
