The Secret Next Door

by Rebecca Taylor

Setting The Secret Next Door in a neighborhood was an obvious choice for me once all the many story variables began to gel, and it became apparent that this novel was about safety. The safety we crave for ourselves and our loved ones, and our beliefs about where safety can and should be found. And what happens to us, psychologically and emotionally, once the systems we’ve constructed, or moved into, begin to break down and we sense that we are no longer safe.
