About Simon Haynes

Simon Haynes lives in Western Australia, where he divides his time between herding deadly spiders, dodging drop bears, and making up wildly inaccurate sentences like this one.

By day he's an author. By night he's also an author.

He loves wry, dry humour, and his hobbies include daringly inserting the letter U into words where -- in some parts of the world at least -- this simply isn't the done thing.

As for his genre-spanning novels, they include epic fantasy (with robots), scifi comedy (also with robots), middle grade humour (featuring robots AND the wanton use of the letter U), as well as a series of historical mystery novels set in 1870's London. (No, of course there aren't robots in those. He's not completely out of his mind.)

When he's not writing Simon is usually renovating his house, sim-racing online, using twitter (@spacejock), gardening, tweaking his book covers, pondering the meaning of the universe and reading, and if you think it's easy doing all that at the same time you should see what he can do with a mug of coffee, a banana and a large bag of salt.

When he's not making outlandish claims he likes to count how many novels he's written, and how many genres he's written them in. (Lots and too many.)

Finally, if you want to hear Simon reading one of his award-winning stories, you'll find an enticement to join his newsletter here:

I stumbled onto Hal SpackJock years ago online, and even custom ordered autographed copies of the first three, from Australia (Between a sale at his local bookstore, and a favorable rate of exchange at the time, it ended up only costing $5.00 more to buy them there, and ship them here, complete with autographs from Simon who went by and autographed the copies for me.) My adult son and I love all the Hal SpaceJock (and Clunk) books. It was nice being able to purchase a short story to tide us over between Hal novels! Framed was a lot of fun in a smaller package.
