Full Name: Simon Stephenson
Born: Edinburgh, Scotland


So, I'm an author and screenwriter (and once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away I was a medical doctor). I am originally from Edinburgh in Scotland but currently live in Los Angeles, California. I've had stops in Glasgow, London and San Francisco along the way.

I like all kinds of books and most kinds of movies (except horror, urgh) and love just about everything that has four legs except the chairs in my dentist's waiting room. My spirit animal is P22, our local friendly neigborhood mountain lion. I have not yet seen him, but live in daily hope.

My first book, Let Not The Waves Of The Sea' was a memoir about the loss of my older brother, Dominic, in the Indian Ocean tsunami. The title comes from Khalil Gibran's book The Prophet, and a particular passage that resonated with me. People have told me that book is more uplifting than it sounds, but you can of course decide that for yourself if you wish.

My new novel is called Set My Heart To Five, (that title I made up all by myself!) and it is the story of a dentist android called Jared - a 'bot' - who begins to experience feelings. The story unfolds in 2054, in a world where we humans have managed to lock ourselves out of the internet by forgetting the names of our favorite teachers and first pets. It is kind of a love letter to feelings, to the movies many of us grew up on, and the American west. So hopefully there is something for everyone...
