In Conversation with Jonathan Rosen, Author of From Sunset Till Sunrise
Do you believe vampires are real? well, if you don’t then tune in as author Jonathan Rosen talk about his latest middle-grade book From Sunset to Sunrise which is all about poorly-dressed wizards to angst-ridden vampires to evil little sisters. It is a second book in the Devin Dexter series and a sequel to NIGHT OF THE LIVING CUDDLE BUNNIES, first in a series of scary/funny books from SkyPony Press.
Jonathan is an expert in mixing two completely opposite genres – horror and comedy. This spooky book is full of good humor for readers of all ages, but especially middle graders. The story is about a 12-year-old boy named Devin Dexter whose cousin thinks Devin’s new neighbor is a Vampire!
Get your cup of coffee ready, and let’s get to know all about From Sunset till Sunrise!
More about the Author
Jonathan Rosen is a transplanted New Yorker, who now lives with his family in sunny, South Florida. He spends his “free” time chauffeuring around his three kids. Some of Jonathan’s fondest childhood memories are of discovering a really good book to dive into, in particular, the Choose Your Own Adventure Series, and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Jonathan is proud to be of Mexican-American descent, although neither country has been really willing to accept responsibility. He is the author of Night of the Living Cuddle Bunnies, which is out now. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook, FromtheMixedUpFiles.Com, The Tuesday Writers and his own website, HouseofRosen.com.
From Sunset Till Sunrise: Devin Dexter #2
Devin Dexter and his cousin Tommy just saved the city of Gravesend from the menace of magical, malicious Cuddle Bunnies brought to life by the warlock, Herb. But there’s no rest for the wicked, as a new mysterious neighbor moves in across the street. At night. With a coffin. Tommy immediately jumps to conclusions as he thinks this can only mean one thing: Vampires.
Devin isn’t so quick to believe, as he is struck by the neighbor’s daughter, a girl his age. Even though Tommy points out that they have never seen her during the day. Yet when she invites him to a dance at her school—the Nosfer Academy of Talented Understudies—how can Devin say no? Tommy, though, realizes that this is an opportunity. After tackling a wizard last winter, surely they can protect Gravesend from some measly vampires, right?
