My name is Simone DeBlasio and I write under the pen name Simone Pond because that’s much easier to spell. I grew up in Kensington, Maryland––a small town just outside Washington DC––and spent most of my time filling up journals. In 2013, I published my first fiction novel, The City Center, which won a gold medal in dystopian fiction. I’ve been writing hard-to-put-down, action-packed novels for young adults ever since. Currently, I’m moving in new direction. One that is dear to my heart. So stay tuned for more details by subscribing to my newsletter and following my social media updates.

Some other random facts about me: I’m obsessed with Boston Terriers, Victorian dresses, and mini pigs. I’m a hopeful cynic. A lover of words. And a follower of Jesus. Oh, and I really love cake––especially the kind with super sugary icing.
