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.

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.
