the next chapter

Simpson's first collection was mainly concerned with sex and childbirth; her second concentrates mostly on couples, marriage and child-rearing and her latest on the difficulties of trying to live an individual and family life. These collections echo the pattern of her own life, her first work was written during her first pregnancy.

She now has a son and daughter aged 8 and 10 and more time to write.

In 2000 Simpson's new volume Hey, Yeah, Right, Get A Life was published to excellent reviews.
