A seasonal novella, AN OFF-PISTE CHRISTMAS, featuring Harriet and her Midhope friends who appear in her earlier books, was published in eBook in 2016.

Her books have also been UK and, recently, Australian top 100 bestsellers and have topped the Kindle Parent and Family Humour charts in France, Germany and Australia as well as the Humour chart in Spain.

Set in the fictional Yorkshire town of Midhope, effervescent, perceptive and instantly absorbing, her novels deal with themes such as infidelity, post-natal depression and drug addiction with intelligence, compassion and her trademark laugh-out-loud humour.

Julie is Yorkshire born and bred and lives in Huddersfield. She taught for many years as a junior-school teacher, including a year in New Zealand.  She now teaches just one day a week, and still loves the buzz of teaching junior-aged children. She also sits as a magistrate.

Julie is married, has a twenty-something son and daughter and a mad cockerpoo called Lincoln. She is working on a new novel, LITTLE ACORNS, also set in Midhope.

Praise for Julie Houston’s novels.

  • "A real page-turner. You'll laugh and cry, but not be able to put it down as Julie's trademark humour shines through from beginning to end" Cassam Book Blog

  • "This is one of those novels that makes you want to read 'just one more chapter' before you turn out the light, and that chapter turns into several more" Big Bertha, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

  • "I became so engrossed in this story I couldn't stop - kept going for just another chapter, and another, until I'd read straight through to the end. I loved it - the magic five for me, a wonderful read and one to keep for rereading" Jeannie Zelos Book Reviews

  • "An absolutely brilliant read. This will definitely be a book to look out for in 2016 and I, for one, will be recommending it at every opportunity" I Love Smart Books
