T.S. Simons is an Australian based author of Scottish heritage. Living in the alpine region of Australia, she believes in the values of sustainability and community in a world where we place greater value on possessions than people. The Antipodes series addresses the question--if we gave young people the opportunity to start over, would we replicate the mistakes of the past?

Her desire to assist others saw her working in international development before realising that her passion lay in education. She holds a Bachelor and Master's degree from Monash University and enjoys travelling, mythology, snow skiing, and attempting to live as sustainably as possible. She is owned by two rather bossy standard schnauzers and two cats who co-manage her household.

The novella prequel, Crossroads is now available. Antipodes is the first main novel in the Antipodes series, followed by The Liminal Space and Ouroboros. She is working on a fifth novel in this series, Caim.

Would YOU be chosen?

After a global outbreak threatens to decimate the planet, Australian scientists select a group of highly skilled young people to establish a sustainable island community built on the modern values of equity, diversity and inclusion. Their primary task? To learn the art of survival and save humankind.

Lonely and homesick, Cam Mackintosh overcomes his anxiety to find belonging, passion and friendship in his new life before his dreams are ripped away. Sent hurtling on a journey of discovery through the Antipodes, he finds friendship and acceptance when he encounters other communities like his own, but is forced to make the ultimate choice.

In this prequel novella to the series, Antipodes, we follow Freyja's tumultuous journey to August Island, and beyond.
