Simon James House - Author
Simon James House was born in London.
Despite being dyslexic, he has always been highly
creative with a strong and vivid imagination. With
a back-ground in never-before-seen product design
(including a bike that is also a surfboard and a skate-
board), Simon spends most of his time now living
in-between London and Sydney, Australia, where
his passions are surfing, writing, inventing and automotive innovation. His first
trilogy, Andee The Aquanaut, was born from a
character he created in the water while surfing...
...As a bachelor, Simon constantly seeks new and creative ways to express himself; one of these ways being through writing fiction stories. He loves to write at a fast pace with never a dull moment, and it didn’t take him long to discover that writing for kids gave him the thrill he sought.
With his excitement for ‘make believe’ and creating new ideas for characters and superheroes, he feels ‘the sky’s the limit’; there’s so much one can tune into. This excitement motivates him to create inspiring works that are original and innovative, sparking the reader’s imagination, taking them on a journey into his world.
Simon's latest work, a new series for kids called ‘Menosaurs’ features the same amount of action, equally adventurous heroes and shocking villains as his first work, the Andee The Aquanaut Trilogy. The story takes place both on Earth (the year is 3017) and in the depths of space, where a race of super-intelligent dinosaur humanoids plot to reclaim Earth which they believe to be rightfully theirs...
As a child, Simon found dinosaurs fascinating. Everything revolved around these mysterious, gigantic, fang-toothed, extinct-but-not-forgotten giants; some gentle and graceful, others monstrous and highly dangerous. Most children only ever hear about these beasts through books and movies; perhaps movies like Jurassic Park give them a broader (although commercialized) idea of what they were really all about? But this was always a question of Simon's; who created the dinosaurs? Of course there are theories, both religious and scientific, but spending sleepless nights pondering over how they came to be, led Simon to create the never-before-seen race, the Menosaurs!
...Coming back to his history in never-before-seen product design, Simon is also the creator and president of the FreeForma clothing line and the inventor of the classic surf/skateboard FreeForma bike! Simon also supports various conservation orgs, namely marine and Rhino-related,
through the sales of his books. With Simon, it seems that anything that’s ‘way out there’ is actually deep within. To read a few interviews with Simon, click here.
