Roderick Gordon

Roderick Gordon is the author of the Tunnels series of books. Born in 1960, he spent his childhood in London and after surviving a rather severe boarding school somewhere in the Midlands, returned to London to attend university where he dabbled in genetics and listened to Joy Division. After graduating without the faintest idea what he wanted to do, he played in a few bands before somehow stumbling into a job in corporate finance with 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. Roderick surprised himself by attempting to write a book with help from an old friend from university and, in 2005, he self-published it as The Highfield Mole, which caught the attention of Barry Cunningham, founder of Chicken House, a publisher of children's books. Following a period of editing, Barry republished it as Tunnels in July 2007. After intense media interest around its launch, Tunnels was published in forty different countries and was followed by further books in the series: Deeper (2009), Freefall (2010), Closer (2011), Spiral (2012) and Terminal (2013). The series has achieved sales approaching two million worldwide, and a movie adaptation is being explored. Roderick currently lives in Norfolk, England, with his wife and two sons, but is known to sneak back to London for reasons of sanity.
