Sami Valentine

Demons, darkness, and dangerous women

Urban Fantasy Author

A Witch Called Red is the first book of the Red Witch Chronicles, a gritty urban fantasy series containing magic, complicated characters, paranormal adventure, and vampire mayhem along with swearing, violence, and sexual situations.


If you liked the snark of the Hollows series, the thrilling action of the Mercy Thompson series, and the dark fantasy world-building of the Kate Daniels series, then this is for you!​

The reviews are in!

“As a self-diagnosed Buffy fanatic, I find it challenging to find books that check all the boxes for me. This series does!”

“It was gritty, thoughtful, it had original characters and Lordy, I loved the action! Red can be by backup anytime, and bring friends, too.”

“This is an incredible book, I honestly read it in one go!”

Sami Valentine is an urban fantasy writer who grew up in the desert and now wanders in search of wifi and coffee. 

Formerly a mild-mannered librarian, she had a quarter-life crisis and shook everything up. She started working in an LGBT homeless center, shaved some of her head, and got really into tarot. After realizing that her goal in life was to get out of her small town and she only made it 30 minutes up the highway, she filled a bag and left. That was two years and a dozen countries ago.

Sink your teeth deeper into the Red Witch Chronicles and watch the book trailers!
