This story began as a teenage dream back in the eighties. After carrying the story with me for decades, it was finally transposed into a stage play for young audiences. Not being satisfied with that iteration, I decided “Monsterville” had to be given a more complete treatment.
This Among You was born.
“This is a gripping, fast paced story with plenty to hold your attention. I couldn’t wait to turn to the next page and find out what happened. It’s a mixer of reality & fantasy – the real world – with the spice of fiction.”
“It’s always an adventure with Jack Wallen. You never know where the next page is going to take you, or what is going to happen. Oh, you think you know, you tell yourself you have it all figured out. You are never right! I was blown away (again) by how fantastic this book was. It was so intense, but not the point where it’s overwhelming.”
“The next book cannot come soon enough! I would totally recommend this book to anyone! Young or old will appreciate the brilliant writing, the amazing story, and the wonderful characters. Jack Wallen has created a world I love and want to live in!”
We all wear masks. Some to hide a dark truth, some to seek refuge from the horror of every day lies. Without these facades, we’d never make it; we’d live in complete fear that someone might see our true selves, or we’d simply curl up and fade away. It doesn’t really matter where you are, who you are, what status you hold in the world, if you’re famous, or little more than a ghost of what you once were.
You wear a mask.
You just don’t know it.
