Booked All Night is a late-night discussion style podcast and blog about young adult literature (and sometimes middle grade) hosted by Jessica Tuckerman, Magdalyn Ann, and Daniel Stanton.
A New Jersey-based writer, blogger, and podcast talent. Jessica graduated from Rowan University in August 2014 with a BA in Writing Arts, again in May 2016 with an MA in Writing, and finally, in January 2019 from Sierra Nevada College with an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults.
Jessica has interned in the publishing world. She held a Social Media and Digital Marketing internship at Quirk Books in Philadelphia, PA with Julie Leung and a Managing Editorial internship at Picador USA, an imprint of Macmillan Publishing, in the Flat Iron Building in New York City, NY.
She is an avid reader, writer, and lover of things like: YA lit, sci-fi shows, Pokemon Go, rocking out in her car, and washi tape bookmarks.
When she’s not reading she’s writing. And when she’s not doing either of those things she’s talking to some writer somewhere about their craft and process.
Or she’s delving deeper into debt by looking into yet another writing degree.
Proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernards, a lab retriever SDiT, and one orange little cat bastard all of whom have made very audible appearances on the podcast.
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 has earned their MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Sierra Nevada College in 2018. 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.
Just a contemporary boi living in a YA world. Dan enjoys reading books rooted in the real-world that make him feel something authentic. He likes writing books that help him deal with broken parts of his childhood that he wishes he had as a younger lad.
He will talk to anybody about the craft of writing and genuinely loves hearing people’s story ideas and they’re writing processes.
He’s currently working on his first novel which is also his thesis for grad school because this blog and podcast are unofficially supported by the Sierra Nevada University Creative Writing MFA program and WCYA tribe. When he is not physically writing he is mentally developing his book while at pop-punk shows, Philadelphia Union games, getting tattooed, and/or while watching prowrestling.
He tries to be professional sometimes as can be seen by this bio:
D.S. Davis is a writer of middle-grade and YA novels as well as an educator of the youths. He graduated from Rowan University in 2017 with a BA in English and Subject Matter Education with a concentration in Creative Writing. He writes books and stories with reluctant readers in mind since that’s what he was all throughout school. He graduated in January 2020 with an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Sierra Nevada University and is now the MFA in Creative Writing Program Coordinator.
