When Shiela finds herself compelled to buy a genuine antique in a strange little shop, she didn’t bargain for what came with the statuette. Mister Jones finds himself once again drawn into the dangerous world of the paranormal, this time via The House Next Door.
I purchased the paperback version of this book at the Llandeilo Book Fair.
The House Next Door is the third in the series of the Mister Jones collection of paranormal mysteries. I wasn’t put off by the fact that I had not read the first two books in the series and quickly fell into getting to know the characters.

Best of luck.
A fanatic general is plotting to conquer the galaxy, and only Jules Rammis can stop him.
It’s not that Jules looks for trouble. As an astrobiologist, he’d rather study the intriguing alien plant/animal species, Blackroot. But his telepathic abilities attract the wrong aliens, and Terrans. This time it’s General Ki Rowdinth, crazed leader of the Vermakt people. The psychotic tyrant intends to extort the combined gold depositories of Earth and all the colony planets to finance an army that will rule the worlds. If the Worlds Government doesn’t agree to Rowdinth’s demands, he vows to engage a dark-energy weapon that will destroy Earth.

First up, please tell us about your connection to Wales.
My family are Welsh. My parents grew up in Cardiff: my father in Llandaff North and my mother in St Fagans. My mother’s first language was Welsh and she grew up inside the Welsh Folk Museum. Her father was a stonemason who took down traditional houses and buildings that were due to be demolished and rebuilt them inside the museum to enable future generations to enjoy and appreciate Welsh architecture.
I spent five years living in Neath and then my family moved to England, eventually settling in south Manchester where I spent my teenage years. I visited my grandparents regularly in Cardiff and am amazed how the city has changed over the years.
