Motherland of Sam: A Hilariously Honest New Book

Sam Deane Mavis holds nothing back in her brutally honest new book Motherland of Sam: We Are All Born A**holes. The Motherland of Sam blog founder takes a unique approach to telling her story as an unconventional mother of 3, all of which are under 5 years of age, as a parent trying to find her way and submitting to the beautiful chaos that is her life. With blog titles such as "Parenting Multiple Toddlers: Someone is Always Crying," "Do You Hear The Poop Mom" and "Sibling Love: I F**king Love Him Mom" Sam's faithful fans and fellow parents are always in for a good laugh and wild ride. Her book uses the same sharp and witty sense of humor to divulge valuable life lessons that readers will absolutely fall in love with and undeniably relate to. {Book provided for review/feature consideration}

Having moved to Southern California in her high school years, the eccentric Buffalo native always knew she was a shining star. With the arts as her passion, she was a triple threat; highly skilled acting, singing and dancing in local theatre and school shows. Deciding to pursue her talents further, Deane Mavis attended New York University's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts to become an actress. She quickly realized that a more suitable and enjoyable creative outlet was in writing and she set her sights on screenplays. She made the move from New York to LA and formed a close relationship with writer/director/producer Tony Bui, best known for his successful indie film THE GREEN DRAGON, which starred Patrick Swayze and Forest Whitaker. Deane Mavis also got involved with various television pilot and sitcom projects, finding a mentor and dear friend in Tom Noonan (HEAT, AMC's "Hell on Wheels").

Deane Mavis met and married her husband in 2011 and quickly had their 3 beautiful children; Ferris, Halen and Hugo. After the birth of her youngest in 2014, she found herself fully consumed by her children and made the decision to return to writing as an expression to everything happening in her life. But instead of trying to write a new screenplay or sitcom she decided to write about something that hit close to home, literally, hence the creation of Motherland of Sam.

In her sparingly free time Sam loves to be active going on runs and doing yoga at least once a week. She also hopes to get her children involved in charity work as they get older, with the hope that each will start his or her own organization helping a cause that they feel a connection to.
