About the author

Ana Simons

I’m a writer of contemporary and women’s fiction. I enjoy writing thoughtful, honest stories about ordinary people, family life, and the complexities of modern relationships. Realistic incursions into life as it is, I suppose: stars don’t always align, and life throws you a curve. But then there are all those moments that make life a wonderful journey too. So sometimes you may find yourself relating to the many struggles some of us face in our daily lives, at other times, cracking a good laugh. Or swooning over one of the heroes.

My story? After spending half of my life studying literature and writing about books, it wasn’t until recently I'd try my hand at crafting stories myself. It turns out I fell in love with it, and now I spend most of my free time thinking of ways to challenge my characters.

While I’m Gone is my debut novel. It is a thought-provoking story that explores the feelings of loss after the breakup of a marriage and the fears and thrills of finding love again ― all under very extraordinary circumstances. I’m currently working on Between Heartbeats, the second instalment of the Falling Home Duet.

 By day, I’m a professor of intercultural communication. I live in sunny Southern Europe with my husband, my extraordinary twins and two frisky rescue dogs.
