ABOUT THE AUTHOR
"Then a shuffling sound came from somewhere inside the darkness."
- Welcome to Denver Falls -
Born and raised in the county town of Dorchester, Dorset, Sim began scribbling away stories on scraps of paper since before he can remember. He spent a lot of his childhood on adventures, walking the dogs in the woodland surrounding Thomas Hardy's cottage with his family. Something about the cottage and 'the man what wrote stuff' who had lived there sparked a fire inside him. It was from there he began to focus on writing more seriously.
In 2012, Sim signed up to Open University to study Creative Writing alongside working full time. He isn't quite sure how he made it out alive, but he graduated with honours and began using the skills he had acquired to edit and redraft old work.
In 2019 Sim, along with some talented friends, set up blandfordliteraryfestival.com.
The town's first-ever literary festival. The events were a huge success with both writers and readers alike.
As of 2020, Sim is now a member of the National Association of Writers in Education.
He was also named Indie Author of The Month (October 2020) by Chasing Driftwood.
