About Me

Tanya Simone Simpson - writer | dark and introspective fiction

Exploring inner and outer worlds through dark and introspective fiction.

Hello! I’m Tanya, AKA EveryNextDream in the online world. I write stories inspired by city streets and stormy seas, synesthesia and l’appel du vide, violent pasts and wide open futures.

Made in Ireland, I now share a home in Scotland with my husband and a cat with entitlement issues. I was born on the cusp of Gen X and Millennial, run on coffee and have a weakness for fountain pens, expertly choreographed fight scenes, and extremely clean kitchens.

My books and short stories live on Wattpad and you can read them for free on any device in your browser or the Wattpad app.

I do social things with words and pictures on Twitter and Instagram.
