Hello! I’m Joan Barbara Simon and I compose multicultural ancient fiction, sensual suspense/smutpunk, non-fiction, literary fiction, but mostly I write what I'm passionate about even if the business labels don’t fit. I’m quite happy to be able to say I have been in comparison to the finest: James Joyce, D. H. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf. Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis, Anais Nin and A. M. Homes. A person called me a literary terrorist and also madwoman. I rather enjoyed that. Someone else called me a girl having a dick. As long as you are able to handle it, I guess that’so fine.

I write books for readers who want to research my protagonists, who would like to understand where those protagonists are coming out of. Readers who want to relate to literary, thoughtful characters. Readers who consent to and experience sexuality as a complex asset – and facet – Of fact, but that aren't just out for this quick thrill it's possible to wipe from your lap following a number of seconds. I write for readers who need an experience that is worth their while long after the book has been read and set aside for they agree with me that the head is the increased challenge to satisfy.

As for my historical fiction (Extended Time Walk On Water), the invitation here, too, is to acknowledge the human face behind history; not one of people who wage wars and also eliminate territories, but of people who dare to love. The cold facts of 'background' has our own lives dehydrated to numbers that leave no room for the warmth of memory. This can be a heat we must provide ourselves. Women, Particularly.

Passion. This’s me. Unconventional? The hat matches. Iȁ
