Dr Joan Barbara Travers Simon. Teacher, researcher, novelist, editor, PhD coach and more. As an editor, I specialize in academic papers, MA dissertations and doctoral theses. As a scholar, I run an education blog for the general public. My special interest: the multilingual literacy development of young learners at home and school. Very little jargon. Lots of good ideas/data for free.
As a novelist, I write historical fiction and adult-rated fiction for freethinkers. Not (merely) erotica, because I know: bright readers want more than grey. You’ll find samples from all my books here in this blog. Join me then make your own mind up. You can also visit my website for more info about individual titles and adult-rated free reads.
I love learning, asking questions and breaking the rules.
There’s someone I’m dying for you to meet, my co-host:
Jean-Joseph, Tatar to his friends. Hero of my latest novel, Verses Nature. I love him so much, I’ve asked him to co-host my blog and newsletter and he said yes. Who is he?
Compulsive-repulsive, he’s been called. Self-made man in his late fifties. Self-proclaimed connoisseur of the opposite sex. Straight-up opinions he doesn’t mind sharing. Politics, religion, philosophy, culture. And women. Loads to say about life in general and his memorable life in particular. He’d say. Tatar will, among other things, occasionally be talking us through some of the contributions made by guest bloggers.
Welcome to his world. Welcome to my world. It’ll get explicit, even potentially offensive. You’ve been warned.
