N J Simmonds
I write speculative fiction – from Middle Grade and Manga, to adult Fantasy and Paranormal Romance.
I began my career in glossy magazines, then went on to manage marketing campaigns for big brands before going freelance. In 2015 I co-founded online magazine The Glass House Girls and have since contributed to various online and print publications. I began writing professionally in 2016.
As N J Simmonds I write speculative fiction, including my fantasy trilogy The Indigo Chronicles (BHC Press, 2019), as well as Manga comics (Big Bang! Manga, 2020). As Caedis Knight I write Paranormal Romance with co-author Jacqueline Silvester, and my Middle Grade work is written under the pen name Natali Swan.
When I’m not working on stories about magic and adventure, I run my own storytelling consultancy and lecture on corporate storytelling and self-branding.
Originally from North London, with Spanish parentage, I now live in the Netherlands with my husband, two daughters and a couple of very cute cats.
