Tanya Simone Simpson


Character-driven sci-fi and dark contemporary fiction

Stories about lost souls building their own roads home. Inspired by city streets and stormy seas, synesthesia and l'appel du vide, troubled pasts and wide open futures.


I'm Tanya. Made in Ireland on the cusp of Gen X and Millennial, I now share a cosy little home in Scotland with my husband and a cat with entitlement issues. Fuelled by coffee and yoga, I'm a witchy soul with a weakness for expertly choreographed fight scenes and extremely clean kitchens. I write a lot of LGBTQ+ characters because I am an LGBTQ+ character.


Anyone, anywhere, can read them for free on any device. They're all listed on my Wattpad profile HERE or you can scroll down for direct links to, and information about, each story.

At the moment, I choose not to sell my books on self-publishing platforms like Amazon. If you enjoy my stories and wish to contribute some money, you're welcome to make a donation to my tip jar through KO-FI or directly through PAYPAL.
