Hello I’m Simone – thank you for visiting my website.
I’ve lived in the lovely High Peak area of Derbyshire since I was 4.
I left school at the age of 16 and started working at the TSB bank on a Youth Training Scheme in 1985. I worked at lots of branches in the local area but mainly at Buxton. I’ve always had a passion for writing and over the years I’ve written loads of poems for my colleagues for birthdays, weddings etc.
It has always been my dream to write a book and in 2013 I started to write my debut novel Under a Greek Spell. In June 2015 I left the bank to concentrate on writing full time.
The writing and production process have been a learning curve (vertical line😂). It’s taken a lot of determination but I have reached my goal of self publishing my first book in February 2019. 🎉
