Simon Is An Author Based In South Devon Who Writes About The Locations He Loves Dearly

Simon Tozer Devon Author

Simon was born and raised in Highweek in South Devon. On both sides of his family he can trace his family line back to the 1500s at least in South Devon and his DNA shows him to be approx 80% Devonian!

Simon was brought up enjoying the South Devon coastline and the tors of Dartmoor. He goes open water swimming pretty much every day and all year around, though in the winter you are more likely to find him on a South Devon beach than in a Dartmoor river or lake, though he does the nature of wild swimming on Dartmoor and that does come across in his books.

Simon, took a creative writing course in the early 2000s but it was not until 2019 that he self-published his first novel. That story about the thirteen year old girl, Briana, proved popular with many readers and therefore Simon is planning at least one more sequel in that series.

In 2021 he decided to start writing Wylde Swimming when the idea popped into his head almost fully formed. That book has proved to be very popular.

In the Summer of 2023 he published the follow up to Briana, called “Christos and the Dartmoor Giants”. 

In November 2023 two more books were published. They are Swimming, Walking and History Guides to some South Devon Beaches and to some South Dartmoor Rivers and Lakes.

I loved following Briana’s amazing and sometimes dangerous sorties into a past life . Being a fan of historical fiction I found it both exciting and educational with lots of interesting characters and plots. Simon has cleverly combined historical and scientific fact with a fictional world of danger and intrigue. With plenty of reference to his much loved home county of Devon his passion for local history clearly shines through. I can’t wait to find out what Briana encounters in her next adventure. A great read for young and old alike.

I was up until 2am , I was entralled and could not put this book down! it was brilliant, the research that has gone into it and the character's you chosen, all perfect. I just wanted it to go on and on, more adventures in the book, maybe another book?. Forgot to say the blood ride was amazing and meeting Ceasar and Shakespeare, what an imagination you have, all brilliant!
