Roderick Gordon is the author of the Tunnels series of books. Born in 1960, he grew up in Highgate, North London, and eventually went to University College where he dabbled in genetics and listened to Joy Division. After graduating without the faintest idea what he wanted to do for the rest of his life, he spent some time in the wilderness when he played in a few bands, then somehow fell into a job doing corporate finance for an investment bank in the City of London. He genuinely thought this was all that the future held for him until he was made redundant in 2001.
But Roderick surprised himself by working on a book with help from an old university friend and, in 2005, he self-published it as The Highfield Mole, which caught the attention of

The other part of the equation was what Brian WIlliams had heard about the Williamson tunnels in Liverpool - there had been various myths knocking around about them while he was growing up, but the one that caught both our imaginations was when some workmen had been working on a road and unexpectedly knocked through to a cobbled street below. I never knew if the story was really true, but it sparked the idea for the Colony, and gave us the impetus to start the story. Do say hello to your boys from me! Kind regards, Roderick(less)

The truth is that sometimes I start with real people, then exaggerate certain traits so that they don't recognise themselves (not often, anyway). It means that the characters feel real when I begin to work with them and then they move away from me and stand on their own two feet. When I was deep into writing each of the Tunnels books, it was pretty weird to cut myself off from the world and spend all my days with imaginary friends, but I found it helped me get through the writing process. My sons thought I was mad, and I probably was - a little. Kind regards, Roderick(less)

Halfway to the Grave
Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1) by Jeaniene Frost by Jeaniene Frost


goodreads summary-Flirting with the grave...
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father--the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner--are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her new found status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

Dead Beautiful
Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon by Yvonne Woon


goodreads summary-On the morning of her sixteenth birthday, Renée Winters was still an ordinary girl. She spent her summers at the beach, had the perfect best friend, and had just started dating the cutest guy at school. No one she'd ever known had died. But all that changes when she finds her parents dead in the Redwood Forest, in what appears to be a strange double murder.

After the funeral Renée’s wealthy grandfather sends her to Gottfried Academy, a remote and mysterious boarding school in Maine, where she finds herself studying subjects like Philosophy, Latin, and the “Crude Sciences.”

It’s there that she meets Dante Berlin, a handsome and elusive boy to whom she feels inexplicably drawn. As they grow closer, unexplainable things begin to happen, but Renée can’t stop herself from falling in love. It’s only when she discovers a dark tragedy in Gottfried’s past that she begins to wonder if the Academy is everything it seems.

Little does she know, Dante is the one hiding a dangerous secret, one that has him fearing for her life.

Dead Beautiful is both a compelling romance and thought-provoking read, bringing shocking new meaning to life, death, love, and the nature of the soul.

Generation Dead
Generation Dead (Generation Dead, #1) by Daniel Waters by Daniel Waters


goodreads summary-Phoebe Kendall is just your typical Goth girl with a crush. He’s strong and silent…and dead.

All over the country, a strange phenomenon is occurring. Some teenagers who die aren't staying dead. But when they come back to life, they are no longer the same. Feared and misunderstood, they are doing their best to blend into a society that doesn’t want them.
The administration at Oakvale High attempts to be more welcoming of the “differently biotic." But the students don’t want to take classes or eat in the cafeteria next to someone who isn’t breathing. And there are no laws that exist to protect the “living impaired” from the people who want them to disappear—for good.
When Phoebe falls for Tommy Williams, the leader of the dead kids, no one can believe it; not her best friend, Margi, and especially not her neighbor, Adam, the star of the football team. Adam has feelings for Phoebe that run much deeper than just friendship; he would do anything for her. But what if protecting Tommy is the one thing that would make her happy?

Maze Runner

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1) by James Dashner by James Dashner

goodreads summary-Imagine waking up one day in total darkness, unsure of where you are and unable to remember anything about yourself except your first name. You're in a bizarre place devoid of adults called the Glade. The Glade is an enclosed structure with a jail, a graveyard, a slaughterhouse, living quarters, and gardens. And no way out. Outside the Glade is the Maze, and every day some of the kids -- the Runners -- venture into the labyrinth, trying to map the ever-changing pattern of walls in an attempt to find an exit from this hellish place. So far, no one has figured it out. And not all of the Runners return from their daily exertions, victims of the maniacal Grievers, part animal, part mechanical killing machines.

Thomas is the newest arrival to the Glade in this Truman-meets-Lord of the Flies tale. A motley crew of half a dozen kids is all he has to guide him in this strange world. As soon as he arrives, unusual things begin to happen, and the others grow suspicious of him. Though the Maze seems somehow familiar to Thomas, he's unable to make sense of the place, despite his extraordinary abilities as a Runner. What is this place, and does Thomas hold the key to finding a way out?

In The Maze Runner, Dashner has crafted a creative and engaging novel that's both mysterious and thought provoking.

Luke and Jon
Luke and Jon by Robert Williams by Robert Williams
[image error]

goodreads summary-Luke's mum is dead. He finds himself in a small, scruffy northern hill town, with a near silent father, who he fears might be trying to drink himself to death. Then he meets Jon. Jon is massively strange. He wears 1950s clothes, has a side-parting and a twitch. The kids at school call him 'Slackjaw'. When Luke discovers his secret, Jon changes his life in more ways than he can imagine. Luke and Jon is a coming of age novel about family, bereavement and how lives can change forever in a single second. Written with great power, warmth and humour, it signals a hugely engaging and original new voice. Compelling and emotionally acute, it is a unique debut.

Just in Case
Just in Case by Meg Rosoff by Meg Rosoff


goodreads summary-Rising star Meg Rosoff’s highly amusing novel is about survival, friendship and the boundaries of love

Meg Rosoff’s wit and imagination are eye-popping. She is already a star in the UK—her first novel How I Live Now sold hundreds of thousands of copies there—and she’s won numerous awards on both sides of the Atlantic. Fans of Mark Haddon will devour Just in Case in one or two sittings.

Up to now David Case hasn’t questioned his relatively good fortune. But a heart- pounding scare with his much younger brother shocks him into considering the fragility of life. He starts thinking about all of the truly awful things that can happen in life and concludes that Fate is out to get him.

And so he decides to trick Fate. He changes his name and his appearance, makes new friends, and dares to fall in love with the seductive Agnes Day—all in the hope that he’ll become unrecognizable to Fate and thereby save himself from doom. With an imaginary greyhound in tow, Justin struggles to maintain his new image and above all, to survive in a world where tragedy is around every corner.

Crossing Stones
Crossing Stones by Helen Frost by Helen Frost



goodreads summary-Maybe you won’t rock a cradle, Muriel.

Some women seem to prefer to rock the boat.

Eighteen-year-old Muriel Jorgensen lives on one side of Crabapple Creek. Her family’s closest friends, the Normans, live on the other. For as long as Muriel can remember, the families’ lives have been intertwined, connected by the crossing stones that span the water. But now that Frank Norman—who Muriel is just beginning to think might be more than a friend—has enlisted to fight in World War I and her brother, Ollie, has lied about his age to join him, the future is uncertain. As Muriel tends to things at home with the help of Frank’s sister, Emma, she becomes more and more fascinated by the women’s suffrage movement, but she is surrounded by people who advise her to keep her opinions to herself. How can she find a way to care for those she loves while still remaining true to who she is?

Written in beautifully structured verse, Crossing Stones captures nine months in the lives of two resilient families struggling to stay together and cross carefully, stone by stone, into a changing world.

Tunnels
Tunnels (Tunnels, #1) by Roderick Gordon by Roderick Gordon


Goodreads summary-14-year-old Will Burrows has little in common with his strange, dysfunctional family. In fact, the only bond he shares with his eccentric father is a passion for archaeological excavation. So when his dad mysteriously vanishes, Will is compelled to dig up the truth behind his disappearance. He unearths the unbelievable: a subterranean society that time forgot. "The Colony" has existed unchanged for a century, but it's no benign time capsule of a bygone era. Because the Colony is ruled by a merciless overclass, the Styx. Will must free his father--is he also about to ignite a revolution?

Hi Silverwolf's mum, unfortunately I have no influence over the movie, or any means to talk directly with the producers or director - all my news comes through the publishers here in the UK. As regards casting, I bet the producers will be looking for young actors for the main parts, but all I can suggest is that you try to send something through to Relativity Media. You can google their website. Sorry I can't help with this! Roderick


Roderick Hi Silverwolf, and the answer is that there are some "hotspots" where the combination of the radioactivity and rock under pressure drives up the temperature (it's discussed in Deeper), but there is certainly no molten core at the centre of the planet!

Aw. I really don't like it when your waiting on a movie, and the directors think that they can spend all the time they need and just diddle around when SO many people are waiting on them.

LOLZ, about them not breathing part.

That's reassuring that it will at least look like London. Wouldn't it be easier just to film it there though.

Roderick Hi AnnieB! Relativity Media haven't actually got the cameras rolling yet but we're told that the project may go into preproduction soon - they've been working on it for such a long time that I'm not holding my breath any longer (makes it very difficult to write when you're not breathing).

message 29: by AnnieB (last edited Apr 14, 2012 10:47AM)

AnnieB I loved how you said at the end "For the last few moments of Sarah's life, she was smiling," that was SO cool, because of how her whole life she had been worrying and hiding. And two rebecca's!! I was like "woah!" it would be so confusing since they are both named rebecca. If i had a twin like that, i would feel like i could never be my own person, you know?


Roderick Anne, so pleased you enjoyed it. The ending was a little bleak but it was how I felt at the time. Sarah's death affected me much more than Cal's because I identified so closely with her. And Silverwolf, the non-Tunnels book hasn't got a publisher yet. I've just changed to a new literary agent so everything's been up in the air for a while and, who knows, maybe I'll never find anyone who wants to release it. It's quite an odd story ...

AnnieB Cal was my favorite character! I was sooooo sad when you killed him off. Loved the ending!

Silverwolf Heheh... I guess it would be less fun if we could control our imagination :). So has the new book been published yet, or are you gonna put us through more suspense :D?

AnnieB Ha ya, im in the middle of Deeper right now. LOVE IT! only feedback is that it's going kind of slow. But that's it.


Roderick I finished a non-Tunnels book in February
and couldn't believe how quickly the words were landing on the page. I suppose that's because I've been thinking about the story for so long. But now I'm trying to get into gear on T6, and the writing is painfully slow. I wish this was something I could control!

AnnieB ya, sorry silverwolf. What book are you writing Mr. Gordon?


Silverwolf Oh, OK, you're both forgiven ;D.

Sorry, Silverwolf, have been working on the new book - I have to try to cut off a bit.


Silverwolf Aww.. I'm feeling like a ghost in this conversation/thread... making sounds, but not being heard <:(.
