About the work available to read here
People who don’t know me very well sometimes call me Sweet Sim. I don't know why. The alliterative appeal, probably. Or they imagine my vanilla exterior coats a similarly inoffensive inside. I beg to differ.
Also on the agenda, a Bildungsroman novel in the final throes of one last edit (I hope) and then the hunt for the right agent. Bildungsroman-in case you don’t know is a high fallutin word for coming of age, particularly appropriate perhaps when your main character isn’t a teenager but a 23-year-old protagonist named Alex, short for Alexandra.
More on Alex when the time is right. In the meantime, more about me!
