Booked All Night
Booked All Night is a late night bi-weekly podcast about young adult literature (and sometimes middle grade) hosted by Jessica Tuckerman and Magdalyn Ann, occasionally co-hosted by our rude-ass pets.

Super-Admin . Blogger . Podcaster
An avid reader, writer, and lover of things like: YA lit, sci-fi shows, Pokemon Go, rocking out in my car, and washi tape book marks.
When I’m not reading… wait… there’s a time when I’m not reading? OH! I’m writing. When I’m not reading, I’m writing. The end.
Proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernards and one orange little cat bastard all of whom have made very audible appearances on the podcast.
I’m an aspiring YA author, but I also write middle grade and even picture books-I’ve shared a few pictures of my work here on my blog.
Well there I am in a nutshell, but here is my professional bio:
Jessica Tuckerman is a New Jersey based writer, blogger, and podcast talent. Tuckerman graduated from Rowan University in August 2014 with a BA in Writing Arts and again in May 2016 with a MA in Writing and is a member of Tau Sigma National Honor Society. She is currently working toward her MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Sierra Nevada College.

Magdalyn Ann is a 20-something-year-old genderqueer and in general all-around-queer YA author/dragon-slayer/lover of puppies and puns. They received their BA in Writing Arts, with a concentration in Creative Writing and a minor in Theatre, from Rowan University in the Fall of 2015 and is currently stressing out about finishing their thesis on time for their MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Sierra Nevada College. They have dedicated their life to writing and creating stories that will forever impact readers and inspire them for years to come.
Magdalyn Ann enjoys YA SFF and most genres, plus anything with dragons or queer characters. If a book makes them cry, then that book gets enshrined in their “Favorite Books Ever” hall. Which is really just their entire bookshelf.
Magdalyn Ann uses she/they pronouns.
Follow Magdalyn Ann on Twitter (@MagdalynAnn) where she rants about her Day Job, cries about books and puppies and meticulously plans and then chuckles evilly about all the things she’s going to throw at her D&D party.
Bitty Ball of Snuggly-Wugglies
Belle is a Lab-Saint Bernard mix, a pudgey little barrel of love and snuggles, and not in the least bit bitty. While she doesn’t often make an appearance on the podcast she is most like the reason behind Jessica’s drawn out words and tangents.
Belle enjoys short walks in the backyard, snoring, agility, and chicken.
Luka is a Lab-Saint Bernard mix and a droopy-faced heavy weight demander of belly rubs right here, right now. You’ve probably heard her in the background of many episodes of the podcast whining and barking at a whole lot of nothing.
Luka enjoys long walks around the neighborhood, barking, agility, barking, chicken, barking, loving faces, and barking.
Service Dog in Training
Ringo Bingo Bongo, who can be found on Instagram under the same name @RingoBingoBongo, does himself a good job taking care of Jessica. His company allows her to go out in public alone again.
Plus, he gets to give her all the hugs on all the days.
Ringo, enjoys being with Jessica, hugs, french fries, being with Jessica, watching TV, and being with Jessica.
Dignified Lady & Toe Licker
Don’t let Nala’s 8 years fool you; she’s still a puppy at heart.
Nala is a shihtzu/poodle/bichon frise mix that loves people, belly rubs and “swimming” (no actual water involved!). When she’s not napping, she’s laying around on pillows that don’t belong to her and licking toes.
Nala enjoys meeting new people, tennis balls, getting treats, and sleeping. Mostly sleeping. She is an older lady, after all.
A little orange ball of hatred
Plumpkin Obadiah is a very lucky cat. He was left in a box in the dumpster where he and his siblings were found by Jessica. Not able to part with the little ball of fuzz who never stopped making eye contact, Jessica took him home. Now he sleeps on her neck, her husband’s shoulder, and treats her hand like a scratching post.
Plumpkin Obadiah enjoys snuggling with his mama, stealing craft supplies, sleeping in hampers, his purple mouse, and attacking the feet of sleeping people.
