Welcome to my personal website.This is where I post details of writing projects, films, and other personal projects, and occasionally blog on subjects that I hope will be interesting to most of the people I know – in writing, film-making, data management, consulting and life in general.

  1. Mr Simsion, it was such a pleasure to meet you again this morning at the train station in Cologne after listening to you yesterday evening. I postet out Photo on your Facebook Page :-)
    Thank you so much for Rosie. She’s a real Lady. I love the book. It is so much fun to read.
    I hope you enjoyed Cologne :-)
    Best wishe,

  2. I don´t speak/write english very well, sorry for that but hope this comment is understandable. Just want to thank you for writing your book which in Spanish is intitled “The wife project”. I just can´t stop laughing, but also thinking that through your great sense of humor, the book really can help people to understand a lot about people with Asperger, bipolar or any other so called mental illness. Thank you for writing, and please don´t stop. I´ll be waiting for your next book, and if you come to Chile, my husband and I will be thrilled tou invite you home for a dinner, but not lobster!

    • Many thanks for being in touch… Your English is fine! Thank you for the kind words, and I can confirm that the sequel will be published later this year. We’ve visited Chile only very briefly so would love to find an excuse to visit again.

      Kind regards
      Graeme

  3. Thank you for this wonderful book. It was very cleverly written and very insightful with your sympathetic depiction of this lovable professor with Asperger’s as well as the other characters in the novel. As the mother of a young man with Asperger’s as well as savant characteristics, I live this everyday….veering between exasperation, to being charmed…never a dull moment. My son is one of the most gentle, loving and quirky/innovative but ultimately misunderstood students in his university. Obviously he struggles with social acceptance but he is thankfully a very optimistic person, can’t be easy but he tries his best to fit in. There was a lovely Hindi movie “My Name is Khan” starring the very lovable Shah Rukh Khan in the title role, which was the only other story that comes quite in this league- featuring an Asperger’s hero that was quite so upbeat and ultimately optimistic. Thank you ever so much!

  4. So, you have a new fan in the USA, in Michigan to be more exact. I had read about your book in Entertainment Weekly and asked to be notified when it showed up at my local library. Now I will be looking to purchase some copies so I can share them with my friends. I hope you are serious about a sequel because I am anticipating another wonderful read.

  5. I have attended a monthly book review group for the last couple of years but I have had a great deal of trouble engaging with my selected novels. I began to lose confidence in my ability to enjoy and complete a novel. Then my daughter gave me a signed copy (at Noosa) of The Rosie Project and I couldn’t put it down. Due to Xmas related interruptions I took about three days to read your laughter and thought provoking novel. I’m familiar with Asperges and Autistic syndromes and it was good to have fun with the quirkiness and be reminded that humanity is blessed with different characters who can be extraordinary people.
