He's also the author of The Stone Child, The Nightmarys, and the Mysterious Four series. His books, The Ghost of Graylock and The Haunting of Gabriel Ashe, were Junior Library Guild selections and made the American Library Association's Best Fiction for Young Adults list in 2013 and 2014. Dan lives in Saugerties, New York, with two scaredy-cats and a growing collection of very creepy toys.

"Tales to Keep You Up at Night is a delightfully wicked collection of bite-sized scares, with stories that are magical, strange, and downright unsettling--the perfect treat for a young reader looking for a properly spooky read."-Kate Alice Marshall, author of Thirteens and I Am Still Alive

"This book is magnificently frightening! It is this delicious blend of old timey folktales and creepy weirdness that kept me riveted to every single page and then, as promised, kept me up all night. Absolute horror story perfection!"--Ellen Oh, author of Spirit Hunters

"Poblocki is the middle-grade Crypt Keeper, spinning yarns that are devilishly inventive and genuinely unsettling. This is the book to reach for during the witching hour."--Daniel Kraus, New York Times bestselling author of The Teddies Saga

"Grab a flashlight and a blanket--this lives up to its titular claim... Alternating between Amelia's storyline and the contents of the book she's reading, Poblocki's delightfully constructed offering is somewhere between a literary matryoshka and an ouroboros as the vignettes twine perilously around each other, rewarding close readers and demanding rereads. It includes well-established genre tropes like creepy clowns and being buried alive, making it a fun distillation of elements from crowd pleasers by authors like R.L. Stine and Alvin Schwartz."--Kirkus Reviews

"The novel's framework, which alternates between Amelia's real life and the scary stories' contents, slowly builds tension, intricately weaving classic and supernatural horror elements to deliver an immersive experience drenched in ominous atmosphere."--Publishers Weekly

"... a masterful, hair-raising work, start to finish."--Books to Borrow, Books to Buy
