Sam Devereaux is a third generation actor. Most of his childhood was spent tucked into the wings of West End theaters watching his dad perform or glued to the television exploits of his famous Australian grandfather. In addition to steady stage work, Sam has worked in voice-overs throughout his career. Starting off with dry corporate fare and progressing to the focused lunacy of his role as the title character in the hit adult cartoon Future Duck, Sam has developed into a flexible and highly focused voice-over actor. Audiobooks seemed the next logical step and Sam gets enormous pleasure from the intimacy of reading a story into a microphone. Whether it's a weighty historical text or the sort of fantastical children's book he reads every night to his kids, Sam just loves to tell a really good story.
"Courtney Maum writes with such honesty and verve about how we struggle to deserve the people we love. Intensely personal and engagingly complex, "I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You" is a moving, complicated, big-hearted novel."--Kevin Wilson, author of The Family Fang
"Antic, sexy, satirically deft, and of course funny, this novel is also, on both the personal and political levels, smart about the bottomlessness of our capacities for self-sabotage, and moving about the fierceness of our yearning to make good."--Jim Shepard, author of You Think That's Bad and Like You'd Understand, Anyway
"Maum's witty and insightful novel captures a lifetime of falling in and out of love. It's an investigation of marriage which often combines its utter clear-sightedness and its tremendous warmth in the very same sentence. So agile and fully realized."--Ned Beauman, author of The Teleportation Accident
