Poppy, Marcus, Dash, Dylan, and Azumi are all trapped within Shadow House, a sinister estate where past and present intertwine. As they fight to find a way out, the kids think the ghosts of the house are the greatest danger they face. Little do the kids know it’s the secrets they’re each hiding that will prove even more lethal.
They’re going to have to come face to face with their fears if they stand any hope of escaping the house alive. Is there anyone or anything in the house they can trust? Or is all hope disappearing, too. . .
Enter Shadow House . . . if you dare.

Most Random spontaneous thing you’ve ever done.
I moved to Kingston, NY after 18 years living in NYC and Brooklyn.
I walked from Williamsburg in Brooklyn to the George Washington Bridge on the coldest night of the year, which is just about 12 miles.
I took a children’s book illustration course at School of Visual Arts on a whim, and through some friends that I made there, the class ended up changing my life.
I adopted a beautiful and sweet dog, but brought her back the next day because I got scared of the responsibility. (I still miss her.)
I adopted 2 kittens, and kept them, and they are amazing.
I started writing my first published book, The Stone Child, on a whim.
Random Things about your college years
I dyed my hair orange, then shaved it, then bleached it, then grew it long, then dyed it purple.
It snowed almost everyday in Syracuse, NY.
I spent a lot of time at the mall, going to movies, and riding their carousel.
I walked a lot in a historic cemetery, thinking and talking to myself.
I could never figure out which way was north.
I almost got a degree in visual art, but studied acting instead.
I took a play-writing class my junior year, which jump-started my love of writing in general.
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!
