My Story

Simone Mansell Broome was born in Wales but has lived mostly in Berkshire, Bristol, London and Brighton. In 2007 she returned to Wales to live and work with her family on a small organic farm. This family business was pretty hectic until early 2020…

 The things that matter most to Simone – apart from the written and the spoken word – are her family, the environment, her menagerie of animals, and finding humour even in the darkest of moments, being a glass-half-full kind of woman!.

Since early 2021 Simone has been obsessed with a clan of mice, the Stowaway family and she is very excited to be sharing their first story when ‘Valletta and the Year of Changes’ was published in June. She is now working on the sequel “Valletta and the secret of the attic” and a book of children’s short stories.

Getting Off Lightly

“these are lived-in, unblinkered poems of great insight, range and skill… there’s real energy here matched by a dark laugh-out loud humour and above all – they’re readable”
