More About the Author

J.G. Wilson lives in Americus, GA, with his wife and two sons. He works at a college library and grew up reading books by YA authors such as Lois Duncan, Christopher Pike, R.L. Stine, Joan Lowery Nixon, and Richie Tankersley Cusick.

A huge fan of Young Adult Horror and Suspense, Wilson wanted to introduce his sons to these genres and looked to find present authors that wrote tales similar to the ones he read as a kid. Unable to find any, Wilson decided to write his own young adult tales of terror.

He is currently working on his second book, "My Sister's Boyfriend is a Werewolf!"

In the past he has published numerous short stories, one which won the Hewlett Packard Young Adult Writer's of the Future Award in 1998. Bruce Coville, author of "My Teacher is an Alien" was a judge for this competition.

Working at a library has been a wonderful experience for Wilson. In addition to meeting new friends, he also has nightly chats on the second floor with the library's ghosts.

Vacation of Fear was a really good book. It took me back to when I used to read Christopher Pike and RL Stine. Lots of suspense! It was a quick read and worth the money. It's about vampire and the beach. and I love them both.

The story about a girl named Melody who gets stuck chaperoning her older cousin Valery to Florida for Spring Break. Valery wants to go clubbing and Melody don't. Valery picks up two strange guys and that's when the book takes off.

I thought I knew where this book was going but I didn't. Real surprise ending.

Vacation of Fear (Fear the Night)

You gotta feel sorry for poor Melanie. Studious, scholarly, shy, she just wants to work on her history term paper, and find time to get absorbed in a good book. But no, she's too co-dependent to stand up for herself and say no when her year-older cousin demands she come along to a beachside vacation on Spring Break. Who wants sun, sand, and swimming? Certainly not Melanie, who hasn't yet learned the empowerment of "no." So there she and Valery are, cheap ugly motel, hot sun-and all Val wants to do is play and meet new guys. Already sounds like a recipe for a couple of different kinds of trouble, and so it becomes.

I like Melanie-except that she needs to lose some of her mental innocence and face life-but her cousin Valery is such a jerk. One almost wishes something would befall her-she's so entitled, demanding, and insulting. Of course, as in any ideal Universe-something bad does happen; but where the reader might be expecting date rape, serial murder, or vehicular accident, it's nothing so prosaic. Instead Valerie is snatched by a giant bat, and disappears, while the two jerks she picks up at a nightclub attack the boy who saved Melanie's life with Holy water and a flashlight. What's a girl to do now?

I really enjoyed this fast-paced book. It certainly kept my attention, the action is roller-coaster-speed, and the author understands his characters and their motivations very well. They act in ways that make sense according to their individual personalities and past histories, so it is easy to suspend disbelief (we are talking about Creatures of the Night, after all).

Vacation of Fear is a very tasteful suspense story geared to the young adult reader. I just finished reading it and will certainly read all other novels
by J.G. Wilson.
I really enjoyed the budding romance between Melody and Colton.

It was entertaining. The thing I liked most about it was I was able to read it on my lunch break. I Like when I find books I can finish quickly :)

I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me of the old vampire movies that I watched growing up. The book follows Melody and her cousin Valery during their spring break vacation in Florida. At their age, they should be partying, hanging out on the beach, and having the time of their lives, which they attempted. Unfortunately danger decided to walk in an crash the party. What was suppose to fun and exciting quickly turned in to fear, fear for their lives. The book has more twists and turns than a roller-coaster gone wild. There is suspense around every turn. You may think that you have it all figured out, but I bet you will be shocked when this ride comes to an end, I was! I recommend this book to anyone that likes the style of old school horror. I can't wait to see what the author has up his sleeves next.
