Helen Douglas’s scifi debut, AFTER EDEN (Bloomsbury, Summer 2013), sounds pretty awesome. And it finally has a cover! Scroll down to read the synopsis, check out the cover, and enter to win a pre-order of her book!
Eden Anfield loves puzzles, so when mysterious new boy Ryan Westland shows up at her school she’s hooked. On the face of it, he’s a typical American teenager. So why doesn’t he recognise pizza? And how come he hasn’t heard of Hitler? What puzzles Eden the most, however, is the interest he’s taking in her.
As Eden starts to fall in love with Ryan, she begins to unravel his secret. Her breakthrough comes one rainy afternoon when she stumbles across a book in Ryan’s bedroom – a biography of her best friend – written over fifty years in the future. Confronting Ryan, she discovers that he is there with one unbelievably important purpose … and she might just have destroyed his only chance of success.
Helen Douglas took the scenic route to life as a writer, first doing time as a waitress, cleaner, theatre director and, most recently, an English teacher. When she’s not writing books, she likes to hike in the country, travel, watch sci-fi films and stargaze. Helen lives in Cornwall (the far south-west of England) with her husband and two children. AFTER EDEN is her debut novel.
