Originally from Melbourne, Simi is now a Northern Rivers NSW based author and circus performer. Simi has always been drawn to adventure, and it was during her many travels that she discovered the flying trapeze. This ignited a love of all things circus, and she spent the next twenty years performing as a trapeze artist with traditional circuses around Australia and with contemporary circuses around the world. Simi hopes that by reading about amazing women, children will see the incredible things girls are capable of and be motivated to follow their dreams. So She Did is her first picture book.
