Simon Northouse writes books that entertain. His stories include hefty doses of self-deprecating satire, ironic farce and droll bathos delivered in a deadpan Yorkshire voice.

He touches on social issues that have plagued humans since the first man pointed at a woman on the back of a woolly mammoth and shouted, "Oi, love, come down from there. That's a man's job!" Racism, misogyny, sexism, elitism, classism, anxiety, self-doubt and entitlement are just a sprinkling of issues that intersperse his works.

He’s also big on love, mateship, truth and loyalty and their darker flip sides. Yes, there is humour, bonding, ridiculous situations and tender

I always loved the Wishing Chair and the Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton. A wishing chair would come in very handy although it would probably come with a seat belt and an air bag these days.(less)

Simon Northouse asked a question about THE SCHOOL REPORT:
THE SCHOOL REPORT by Simon Northouse
Hello Goodreads people, I've now published two very short books of the School Reports, which is not really a story, just a collection of fictitious school reports, based on my own reports from yesteryear. I have an idea for another longer book (with a proper storyline) based on the old school days of the 60s/70s. But, this is where I would value your input - what story arc would you like to see?
Arc Of A Shooting Star by Simon Northouse
" Hello Ronald,
thanks for the great in-depth review! Glad you enjoyed the book.
