I am a nightlifer (night owl) who is terrified of the dark. Ironic—I know—but I wouldn’t want my life to be any other way. I have no doubt that the fear of what I can’t see heightens my imagination, while the nighttime freedom, inspiration and quiet provide the ideal environment for me to transform my thoughts into reality. Of course, when you're up most the night, the demands of a nine to five world often feel like a cruel conspiracy against the light bulb and all those who take full advantage of its potential.
Regardless, the lack of sleep didn’t stop me from getting an advanced degree, being a designer at a large architectural firm, or creating and running my own business.
Like most nightlifers, I get things done. And what I want to do for the rest of my life is what I have always wanted to do—write. THE BORING DAYS AND AWESOME NIGHTS OF ROY WINKLESTEEN is my first book—and, yes, the title is meant to be unapologetic.
Ten years ago, all the superhumans vanished. No one knows what happened to them--until now. Thirteen-year-olds Danny and Colin are shocked to discover that they are in fact the beginning of a renewed superhuman race. As they rise to take the place of the lost generation, the unimaginable truth behind the explosive final battle that occurred ten years ago between the superheroes and the supervillains is exposed. And when the past resurfaces, Danny and his fellow superheroes must face the new challenges that threaten their survival. On the run from everyone, and not knowing who is friend or foe, the one ability the new heroes are going to need most is the power to distinguish good from evil.
