Simone holds a bachelor's degree in Comparative Literature & Culture from the University of Western Ontario and a post-graduate diploma in Secondary Education from La Trobe University in Australia.

When she's not writing, Simone can often be found pursuing her other passion; travel. Born with a natural wanderlust, she boarded her first plane before she could walk and has been crisscrossing the globe ever since. She loves nothing more than learning a new language, immersing herself in different cultures and taking photos of her feet as she explores each new place they take her.
