My name is Sam Sattler and I founded Book Chase in January 2007 in order to spread the news about new books and authors in a way that would allow me to surround myself online with the kind of bookish people I couldn’t find in the real world. All these years later, I see that I have posted over 1,100 book reviews and have written countless posts about libraries, bookstores, authors, and publishers.  

I live in a community that shares a city limit border with Houston, Texas, and thusly I have a soft spot in my heart for books about Texas or those written by Texas authors.
