Excerpt

“You were right there when it happened. Right behind me! Why are you acting like this?”



“Like what?”
“Like . . . you hit your head or something. Like you lost your memory. You’ve been with me the whole time!”
Azumi’s face drained of blood. “Dash, I haven’t seen you in hours. Not since we first got here.” Her words hit Dash like a shower of sparks. “Whoever was with you when you fell down some stairs . . . that wasn’t me.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR


Dan Poblocki is an American author of mystery and horror novels for young people. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island. During his pre-teen years, his family moved to Basking Ridge, New Jersey. Dan currently lives in Brooklyn, NY with two scaredy cats. 

Dan graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in theater. Subsequently, he toured the United States playing ultra-challenging roles such as Ichabod Crane in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and the Shoemaker in The Shoemaker and the Elves to packed houses filled with literally thousands of screaming children. (He hopes they weren’t screaming in fear.)

Dan ended his promising acting career to focus on other endeavors. While exploring various artistic options, he held a number of jobs in New York City including: a floral groomer, an audience-wrangler for a popular game show, a computer analyst, a chemotherapy-unit assistant, and a traveling bathing suit sales-dude.

That’s right. A traveling bathing suit sales-dude.

Dan now writes full time. He's probably working on something new this very minute!
