Simone Nowell

Simone Nowell is a writer who has spent eleven years in Oman and has traveled extensively throughout the country. Along with her family, she embraced the local culture and made many Omani friends. British by birth, Simone has spent the last twenty-six years in the Middle East and has planted firm roots in the region.

Swapping the fast-paced life of an editor of a regional magazine for the slightly slower pace of a freelance author, Simone also encourages local literature and supports the talents of locally-based writers and illustrators through her family's small publishing company. She currently lives in Dubai with her husband, Rashid, and their two children.
