Please be aware this event has been postponed. Please check the website and our social media for a new date, coming soon.

“Do not allow people to tell you that you cannot do something, no one. They did that to me and I proved them all wrong , you’ll never be an author, well I did and so much more. Disability shouldn’t stop you, whether it be physical, a learning difficulty or mental health, there are people who have done it and you can too.”

Join local author Simone Young as she discusses the path she took to become the author she always wanted to be!

I am a graduate from the University Of Central Lancashire, UK, with a Bachelors degree in Forensic Science and Criminology who has always enjoyed the more gory side of life.  I started writing as soon as I was able to string a sentence together, starting with changing fairy tales, to fan fiction and after writing academic papers at university I started with my own novels. My first major release was Shattered Souls on March 1st 2014 and I now have six books on sale, one of which was released last month, follow me everywhere and get to know me a little more
