Overview

According to nightlifer Roy Winklesteen, daylifers have no idea what they're missing. So, when a 2 a.m. glance out his bedroom window reveals a neighbor is hiding a secret of mythic proportions, Roy's summer break looks a lot more exciting. Seeking a cure for being the most ignored kid in all of fifth grade, Roy knows an awesome adventure will surely get him noticed in middle school. He watches and waits for the perfect time to move in for a closer look at the mysterious man who lives one street over. Roy's spy mission doesn't go as planned. Still, he manages to gain access into his neighbor's world--where mind-blowing inventions are more common than furniture and fighting crime involves transforming criminals into bumbling fools smothered in questionable goo. Every night with the neighbor brings Roy one step closer to the most daring adventure of his life. But even if he survives, he can never tell anyone about it.

About the Author

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.
