The oceans stopped working before Willo was born, so the world of ice and snow is all he's ever known. He lives with his family deep in the wilderness, far from the government's controlling grasp. Willo's survival skills are put to the test when he arrives home one day to find his family gone. It could be the government; it could be scavengers--all Willo knows is he has to find refuge and his family. It is a journey that will take him into the city he's always avoided, with a girl who needs his help more than he knows.

S.D. Crockett on narrative voice and an especially cold winter:

What was your inspiration for After the Snow?
Well, apart from the unbelievably cold winter during which I was writingóin an unheated house, chopping logs and digging my car out of the snow; I think much of the inspiration for the settings in After the Snow came from my various travels.

In my twenties I worked as a timber buyer in the Caucasus Mountains of southern Russia, and that work led to travels in Eastern Europe and Armenia. As soon as I step off the plane in those places it smells like home.

It may sound strange to say, when After the Snow is set in Wales, but really the practical dilemmas in the book come directly from places Iíve been, people Iíve lived with, and the hardships Iíve seen endured with grace and capability. I was in Russia not long after the Soviet Union collapsed and Iíve seen society in freefall. Without realizing it at the time I think those experiences led me to dive into After the Snow with real passion.

What would western civilization look like with a few tumbles under its belt? What would happen if the things we took for granted disappeared? I wanted to write a gripping story about that scenario, but hardly felt that I was straying into fantasy in the detail.

What do you want readers to most remember about After the Snow?

After the extremely hard winter of 2009, S. D. Crockett asked herself, "What if winter never ended?" and from that thought, her debut novel, After the Snow, was born. Crockett lives in the United Kingdom.

  • A gentle read

    When I first started reading this book I thought Ďthis is strange, Iím not sure if Iím going to like this.í But I was very much wrong. Sophie Crockettís novel involves a young boy, Willo, who speaks quite unusually compared to the way we speak. To begin with I found it a little hard to read, as I wasnít use to the way the Willo spoke. But that easily changed after a few chapters of the book when I began to start enjoying the book. After the Snow is a future waiting to happen. With cold summers and freezing winters, people have been separated into categories and have to find there own way to survive. Willo is a straggler living in the woods with family and neighbours, he has grown up in a stable environment, happy and alive. Until one day his whole world is taken and he must go on an adventure to find out the truth. After the Snow is a gentle story, with lively, realistic description. Sophie Crockett has written this beautifully, so if at first you find it strange or difficult to read, donít give up, because this is a book worth reading.
