Indianapolis author Mike Mullin
creates such an environment in his YA trilogy set in northeast Iowa/southwest Wisconsin. Sunrise is the epic finale in his Ashfall series. You won't want to miss our "Sunrise Party at Nightfall" at Dragonfly Books. We're hosting Mike for an evening of sparkling beverages, post-apocalyptic snacks, taekwondo demonstrations, dancing alligators ~ and Mike promises he will tell as many tales as possible for our amusement. Presentation followed by booksigning.
Sunrise, the epic finale in the series, has the heart of Ashfall, the action of Ashen Winter, and a depth all its own, examining questions of responsibility and bravery, civilization and society, illuminated by the story of an unshakable love that transcends a post-apocalyptic world and even life itself.
Sunrise is Mike's third novel. His debut, Ashfall, was named one of the top five young adult novels of 2011 by National Public Radio, a Best Teen Book of 2011 by Kirkus Reviews, and a New Voices selection by the American Booksellers Association.

Mike Mullin first discovered he could make money writing in sixth grade. His teacher, Mrs. Brannon, occasionally paid students for using unusual words. Mike’s first sale as a writer earned 10 cents for one word: tenacious.
Since then, Mike has always been involved with literature. One of his early jobs was shelving books at Central Library in Indianapolis. Later, he paid his way through graduate school in part by serving as a reference assistant for Indiana University's library. Mike has worked in his mother’s business, Kids Ink Children’s Bookstore, for more than twenty years, serving at various times as a store manager, buyer, school and library salesperson, and marketing consultant.
Mike wrote his first novel in elementary school—Captain Poopy’s Sewer Adventures. He’s been writing more or less non-stop ever since, but fortunately for his readers, Ashfall will be his first published novel.
Mike holds a black belt in Songahm Taekwondo. He lives in Indianapolis with his wife and her three cats.
