Simon Thorpe


I’ve written a novel aimed at Young Adults.  It’s principal character is a lad called Rab who attends a special needs school catering for boys with behavioural, social and emotional needs.
He is discarded by society but finds hope via an adventure that has links in the past.  The reader will meet a nun form the 16th Century as well as a World War One pilot. It’s only 67000 words

I’m retired ( having been a Head of such a school) and had taught history early on in my career.  So- I’ve combined the two

I’m an active grandfather and am involved in my local community.

I have had two educational books published.

I’ve also contributed some short stories towards an anthology about World War One whereby all proceeds went towards Help For Heroes.
