Welcome to Monsterland—the scariest place on Earth.

Wyatt Baldwin's senior year is not going well. His parents divorce, then his dad mysteriously dies. He’s not exactly comfortable with his new stepfather, Carter White, either. An ongoing debate with his best friends Melvin and Howard Drucker over which monster is superior has gotten stale. He’d much rather spend his days with beautiful and popular Jade. However, she’s dating the brash high-school quarterback Nolan, and Wyatt thinks he doesn’t stand a chance.

But everything changes when Wyatt and his friends are invited to attend the grand opening of Monsterland, a groundbreaking theme park where guests can interact with vampires in Vampire Village, be chased by werewolves on the River Run, and walk among the dead in Zombieville.

With real werewolves, vampires and zombies as the main attractions, what could possibly go wrong?

Author Q&A

Can you describe your dream home?
"I’m living in it. A gorgeous ranch on the North Shore of Long Island. I’m surrounded by trees. I have a fire pit, a full basement with arcade and gym, and a pool. For the next house, I’d really like an indoor pool."
If we were to come to your house for a meal, what would you give us to eat?
"Delicious hamburgers covered in gooey swiss cheese. Bacon. Sliced rib eye, medium rare. Cut up kielbasa as a snack."
Tell us about the absolute BEST fan letter you have received.
"It wasn’t really a fan letter, but I once got stopped by a Fangirl on the Las Vegas Strip. She was short of breath when she saw me and started to hyperventilate. Said I was her favorite. I swear, I thought Leonardo DiCaprio was around me because I didn’t know a fan would act this way with a writer. But this particular young lady did. She was very nice. I signed her room key, and took a selfie with me.

She then accidentally dropped her room key down the sewer grate and her phone cracked in half without backing it up to the cloud.

Come to think of it, she was calling me Leo, so I don’t know if she knew it was me. She seemed a bit tipsy too. Oh well."
Say your publisher has offered to fly you anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go?
"Las Vegas, Nevada. So I can do research about my books, and mingle with my fan(s) on the Strip."

Who designed the book cover for the book you are touring?
"My brother is my book cover designer. Actually, it was my wife and brother who told the artist what they wanted. It looks great. I’m creative with my writing, definitely not with book covers."
