Simon started working professionally as a writer during the 1990’s, writing copy for Dennis Publishing on music and sport. Like perhaps most of us, he had harboured ambitions to write a novel for many years and by 2010 felt ready to pursue those goals.
His first book, SEED OF SATAN, takes us deep inside the Kaiser’s Reich, where scientists work desperately to produce a form of germ warfare that will provide the elusive breakthrough on the Western Front. They hope to end the years of stalemate and slaughter by bringing total victory to the Central Powers. One young Englishman is willing to risk his all to prevent them from succeeding.
His second offering, RED SUNRISE, is a literary thriller based in the Pacific southwest at the end of WWII that brings the reader into the mind of a warrior turned anti-war hero. He seeks redemption for the loss of both his ship and his family, but how can his natural fighting spirit triumph against the growing tide of US Cold War policy?
Simon’s third novel is titled FIRE OF THE SUN. It is set in early 1939, where a cold chill grips the spy networks of Europe. There are terrible rumours, dark whispers of the discovery of a vast reservoir of ancient knowledge by the Axis Powers. What is certain is that people are being killed to maintain the silence.
An espionage battle ensues to try and prevent this discovery from being converted into weapons of war. But how can know-how be destroyed? And what about those who have already gained access to the knowledge?
Simon has recently started researching his fourth book, provisionally titled THE SUN WATCHERS.
