All About Von
Von Simeon is a lifelong artist, writing since age 3 and stage performing since age 4. Her first published work, at age 11, appeared in a national poetry magazine in Germany.
Always the artist but also of scientific mind, Von earned a BBA in Computer Information Systems and Quantitative Methods in 1999, and a MS in Community and Economic Development with a minor in Science, Technology, and Society in 2008.
She spent twenty-one years in public service, fulfilling roles for American military, federal, state and municipal governments, with in-between stints in information technology, fashion, and food service, keeping the social experiences fresh. In 2011, Von decided to focus on her dream to publish her many works.
Von Simeon has transitioned from emergent local artist to accomplished independent author, triumphantly releasing her debut novel, I Blew Up Juarez in 2014, an action/thriller fiction based on her social observations and unique philosophy. Her poems and short stories are featured in American and British literary mediums, with the intention to make her artwork available in every country on the planet.
Born in Colón, Panama, raised in Germany, having lived in Puerto Rico, Texas, and Kentucky as a child, and well-traveled since then, the artist calls Saint Pete Beach Florida home.
