Thursday Twitter Takeover: A.J. Massey

Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account for Thursday’s Twitter Takeover. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week young adult authors A.J. Massey will be taking over our Twitter account.

A.J. Massey is the author of the YA novel Where Dragonwoofs Sleep and the Fading Creeps. The book centers on 13-year old Ben. Ben is a normal eighth-grader by day who one night awakens a fantastical dream world called Meridia. In Meridia, snow burns, the sun disappears and reappears without warning. And magic is addictive. But Meridia is disappearing and being eaten by a phenomenon called the Fading. Ben journeys across monster-infested oceans and sun-scorched mountains to retrieve the sphinx’s head. Which is the key to saving the world and every astonishing creature that inhabits it. But not everyone wants them to succeed. Soon, they find themselves pursued by the Sovereign and his generals, whose armies will stop at nothing to perpetuate the Fading and its consumption of the land.
