Author Biography

I'm a writer of romance and women’s fiction. After spending almost half of my life studying literature and writing about books, it wasn't until recently I'd try my hand at crafting stories myself. It turns out I fell in love with it, and now I spend most of my free time thinking of plots and bringing sharp and witty characters to life.

While I'm Gone is my debut novel. It is a story that explores the feelings of loss after the breakup of a marriage and the fears and thrills of finding love again. I'm currently working on Between Heartbeats, the second instalment of the Free Falling Series, a story that follows the emotional and romantic journey taken by Brian and Olivia, the handsome and enigmatic English architect who swore off love and the one woman he would never forget...

By day, I'm a professor of intercultural communication. I live in sunny Southern Europe with my husband, my extraordinary twins and two frisky rescue dogs.

Free Falling is a contemporary romance novel written by Ana Simons. Brian Anderson had had enough of betrayal by the women he had fallen in love with. No amount of playing the field or maintaining a somewhat predatory mindset lessened the impact of those betrayals or the ensuing pain. It had been some years since Olivia Burke had stepped out of his life, and he had never really recovered from that loss. She had been his childhood sweetheart, and he had never quite understood what had happened to change her feelings toward him so utterly. More recently, Mary had been unfaithful to him with an older man, and his anger at her behavior was compounded by that first loss of Olivia. Brian was content with the active part he took in helping his sister raise her growing brood; he loved his nieces and nephews. Romance was not something he really had much use for, and marriage seemed a sucker’s bet at best. Then he saw Olivia again, at a wedding of all places, and everything began to change whether he wanted it to or not.

Ana Simons’ contemporary romance novel, Free Falling, follows Brian Anderson and Olivia Burke as they try to untangle their romantic history, and each strives to heal and to trust again. Simons' plot is engaging and authentic, with families, jobs and real life situations keeping the romantic elements in perspective. Her characters are credible and well-defined, especially Olivia and Brian. Free Falling is a well written story that never veers into becoming sappy or overly sentimental, and the author keeps both her readers and her characters on edge as to what will happen next. Free Falling is highly recommended.

I loved Brian and Olvia’s Second chance at love. Childhood friends who were separated by a lie years before have a second chance not To rekindle ( love for each other never left their hearts) but to actually get a new chance at a life together after a lot of hardship alone with other partners. I loved little Josh hope you do a book of him afterwards he sounds adorable. All the characters were engaging. Can’t wait for more of these charcters
