T.S. Simons is an Australian-based author of Scottish heritage. Living in the alpine region of Australia, she believes in the values of sustainability and community in a world where we place greater value on possessions than people. The Antipodes series addresses the question—if we gave young people the opportunity to start over, would we replicate the mistakes of the past?

Her desire to assist others saw her working in international development before realising that her passion lay in education. She holds Bachelor and Masters degrees from Monash University and enjoys reading, travelling, mythology, snow skiing, and attempting to live as sustainably as possible. She is owned by two, rather bossy, standard schnauzers and two rescue cats who co-manage her household.

The Antipodes series comprises Antipodes, The Liminal Space, Ouroboros and Caim. The fifth in this series, Sessrumnir, will be released in late 2021. She is developing a related series, The 45th Parallel, which extends on the Antipodes series.
