A door in time. A visitor from the future. A girl determined to save the boy she loves.The third book in the mind-twisting dystopian time travel series, The House Next Door

Mathew Erlang travels north through an England overrun by violence and sickness. Accompanied by a new friend, he finally makes it to his grandmothers house, but all is not as it seems in this childhood place of safety. Meanwhile, Clara makes an uncanny pact with Mathews peculiar neighbour and finally learns the truth about Mr. Lestrange.

Author Q&A

Q: What made you want to write YA time travel fiction?

I love books like the Hunger Games and Divergent. I also love books like Patrick Nesss Chaos Walking and Chuck Wendigs Heartland Trilogy. They are all exciting, deeply engaging dystopian action adventure series. They all make you stop and think. So I wanted to write something similar. But Ive been reading about futurology and climate change for years and they have seeped into my subconscious. I liked the idea of exploring possible futures based on the non-fiction Id be reading. To do that I needed Mathew Erlang, my main character, to be able to jump forward into the future to see how things turn out.

Q: Why specifically write teen dystopia? Why not write for adults?

Im not sure I am specifically writing just for teens. I read a lot of young adult fiction and Im certainly not a teen! But when I built the world and the much bigger story that Mathews tale exists in, he happened to turn out to be a teenaged boy at the beginning of his series.

Q: You describe your books at cli-fi. What does that mean?

Cli-fi means climate change fiction. Its a spin on sci-fi, of course, but its a type of dystopian science fiction or speculative fiction that specifically deals with the impact of climate change on the people of the future.

Q: Why did you want to write about climate change?

Its the big issue of our times and the biggest challenge weve faced as a civilisation. Theres a huge scientific consensus about the fact that climate change is man made and that it is likely to massively disrupt our lives in the future, but lots of people dont believe in it. I read an article a while ago in The New Scientist (which is my favourite magazine) saying that the climate change lobby needs more artists and writers to go and spread the message. Frighteningly, young people, who are likely to suffer the most in the future, are particularly not engaging with the issue.

Q: Is this it for Mathew? Are there no more stories?

This is the last book in the House Next Door trilogy, but I am already working on the first book in a new series. It tells the story of the Kind and the Lamplighter, characters that appeared at the end of The Boy Who Fell from the Sky. Plus, I dont think Im quite done with Mathew yet. Well have to see.
