Rona Simmons

Author, Freelance Writer, and Dog Lover with a Cat

Rona Simmons is the author of The Quiet Room and Postcards from Wonderland. Both novels were set outside the south, yet she considers herself a southern writer. Both were historical fiction, yet she thinks of them as stories that just by happenstance took place in the past. For The Martyr’s Brother, she ripped a topic from today’s headlines and set it in present day, Atlanta, Georgia, her adopted home in the South. When not planning to write, writing, or talking about writing, Rona “slow blogs” about women in the creative arts and her other passion--travel as well as this and that on The Huffington Post Blog. Her short stories, articles, and interviews have been published in literary journals and online magazines, including Deep South Magazine, Points North, and The Persimmon Tree.
