HELLO, I'm Tanya. I write dark contemporary and introspective fiction, and explore internal and external worlds through poetry and life writing.  I live in Scotland with a tall man, a small cat and an albino axolotl with a double-barrel surname.

I LOVE coffee, yoga, cinnamon tea, driving at night, cooking, documentaries about the ocean, the ocean, documentaries about cooking, storms, horror films, the feeling of getting tattooed, expertly choreographed fight scenes, Irish bread, clean kitchens, literally all cats, playing other people's pianos, and winter mornings.

I'VE BEEN ON WATTPAD on and off for a few years, but never really got properly involved beyond floating around occasionally and reading bits here and there. I decided to try and find my feet here this year, so at the beginning of 2019 I posted some of my writing - completed novellas and ongoing anthologies. I'm currently editing a NaNoWriMo project - a neo-noir novel - that will be on its way here later this year.

AT 38, I'M APPARENTLY ancient in Wattpad years, so I'm super excited to have found the @adultfiction profile and The Pub community! I'm still totally at the I-have-no-idea-what-I'm-doing stage of exploration, but I'm diving in and I'm really looking forward to discovering amazing things to read and connecting with other writers :-)

I MAKE ART with pictures as well as words, so I love designing book covers and the images I use are all my own photography. If you'd like to see more of my creations, and read my blog, those live on my website at http://tanyasimonesimpson.com
