a writer of horror and speculative fiction //
Simon J. Plant is an Australian expat, author, and ballet dancer based in Cincinnati, Ohio. When he's not performing with Cincinnati Ballet, expect to find him vacillating between synonyms or planning home-renovation projects he can't afford. He has a soft spot for anything Stephen King has put to paper, enjoys the creeping subtleties of Shirley Jackson, envies the Twilight-Zone-strange work of Richard Matheson, and gravitates in general toward speculatively terrible eventualities.
Simon was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1993 and from a young age labored toward unobtainable perfection until classical ballet became his profession. In 2015, together with the man he would eventually call his husband, Simon immigrated to the United States. A graduate of the Australian Ballet School, he has danced for The Australian Ballet, Sydney Dance Company, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, and Cincinnati Ballet, where he has worked since the summer of 2022.
His writing has appeared in anthologies and / or magazines by Not a Pipe Publishing, The Writer Shed, DarkLit Press, Red Cape Publishing, Hiraeth, and others.
