About Anita Simpson

I have been writing freelance since January of 2007. Most of my work has been non-fiction on varied topics such as British castles, influenza of 1918, weather, and day trading. I also enjoy writing short stories, with an emphasis on science fiction.

I characterize myself as “eclectic eccentric” and sometimes “bohemian.” At present, I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren (plus one on the way!). My hobbies (other than writing) include digital scrapbooking, music, and history.

  1. Well, I was very surprised that you had started this blog. You had not mentioned it, that I remember, at least. I enjoyed all of your articles and learned some things about you from them. It is always good to learn more about our loved ones and it is good to get more insight to what they think and who they are and how, in many ways, they reached their views of life. The more we learn about one another, the more we can understand and appreciate the other’s view point.

    Thanks for sharing yourself this way and being very open and transparent.

  2. I’m glad I found your blog….or, actually I think maybe you found mine first. I’ve added you to my blogroll and I’m pretty picky as to who gets on there.


  3. Hi there, I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog.

    I’m also apart of the Mental Health Writers Guild, and I have a new project coming up which I hope you’d be interested in working on.


    The Mental Health Art Auction needs YOU, to post about your experiences, raise awareness, and promote the auction that will happen in August.

    The auction will feature a piece of art put together by myself, which will reflect how each and every blogger taking part feels about mental health. What it means to them. This is an opportunity to get more people talking, and hopefully raising a lot of money for charity. Please check out the link and let me know if you’re interested 🙂


  4. Thank you for reblogging my post! I had to smile at your “digital scrapbooking:” it made me realize that in fact, I do that too. I follow a live kitten cam at http://new.livestream.com/FosterKittenCam featuring Foster Dad John Bartlett and I save countless screenshots from that live cam. So I guess I have a digital scrapbook. I actually ended up self-publishing a scrapbook for the community there because I wanted to have a book I could go to to look at cute kittens. 🙂 I look forward to reading your blog.
