About Stephen Howard

Stephen Howard is a British novelist and short story writer born and raised in Manchester, England. He was always an avid reader but finally decided that, aged twenty, perhaps he too could write stories people may enjoy. This eventually led to the self-publication of his first novel, Beyond Misty Mountain (2013), inspired by an enduring love of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series.

Since then Stephen has completed his Bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Creative Writing with the Open University, gaining First Class Honours, alongside full-time employment working in marketing, then in elderly care, before settling into local government administration. During this period Stephen has had short stories published on The Flash Fiction Press and in the Tigershark Publishing ezine.

Stephen's first collection of short fiction, Condemned To Be, was published in 2019 through Amazon.

Outside of writing, Stephen supports Manchester United and tries to get to Old Trafford when he can, though he does enjoy watching the match in the pub. He can also be found taking pub quizzes too seriously somewhere in the Urmston area – you may even have caught his brief appearance on Mastermind in 2017.

It's been a year since I read this the first time. I've just downloaded it so I can read it all over again. It's going to be my refuge at work. Engaging characters and an exciting plot make this book perfect for taking time away from daily life. It's funny and charming - I know I'll enjoy it as much the second (third, fourth...) time as I did the first.

I really liked how easy this was to read. It's a real page turner, you will intend to read a chapter after tea and find your self still reading long past bed time!
The rough charm of the characters means you really engage with them and the way multiple tangents meet together to combine the plot is brilliant.
Can't wait to catch up with Cane and the others again in the sequel.
P.s. I've not read many books twice but will probably do so with this one once the sequel is out.

Witty, irreverent and transfixing, clearly an engaging and precocious writer.
Every now and then, we come across a book so well written, we just cannot put it down.
Beyond Misty Mountain is definitely one of them....
