Simone loves stories that make her laugh, think, and cry in equal measure -- but only if there is a happy ending waiting on the last page. She strives to write characters who are flawed, real, and worth the time of a reader. Whether she's writing about snowdrifts in rural Washington or the daily summer thunderheads of Florida, Simone feels that each setting is a character, too.

After working on a short project that swelled up into a full-length romance novel, a friend proposed the unthinkable: why not start publishing?

In her past lives, Simone was editor in chief of a newspaper, managing editor of a lit mag, a librarian, a website voodoo expert, and a cupcake baker. Kay Simone lives in Florida where she blogs, podcasts, and writes full time.
