About The Monsterjunkies
Believable Fantasy/ Paranormal
Young-Adult fiction/ Coming of Age
Teen Issues /Ant-Bullying

Tucked away in a remote cul-de-sac on the Maine coast is a place where the strange is normal, and the bizarre, is every day. This is a place, where, if you do not have an open mind, you will lose your mind in its reality and truths. This is the home of The Monsterjunkies, An American Family Odyssey.

“Erik Daniel Shein creates a fascinating world of otherworldly beasts, cared for by an eccentric but close and loving family.

Very highly recommended for pre- to early teen readers and a valuable addition to fiction teaching kindness and understanding in a way young people won't find "preachy." Unique and compelling, The Monsterjunkies would make excellent summer reading.” Lisa Guidarini, Amazon Vine, Independent Publisher Award (IPPY) judge and member, National Book Critics Circle

The Monsterjunkies has built up a formidable online presence on various social media sites, including over 150,000 Facebook fans and a YouTube presence. The story is currently being explored for film rights and a television series.
