Her parents were British, so in the summers she went to stay with her grandparents near Dublin.

There was no stereo or TV there, so Alison, her sister, and her cousins spent the summer inventing stories and plays for each other. It was possible to endure it because I was watching my own little stories play out in my mind. After graduating from West Chester University, Alison became a teacher of English and Spanish, teaching students from kindergarten up to college level.

She loved teaching, and it was with reluctance that she left the classroom to be a fulltime mom when her daughter was born. While she was teaching and raising her daughter, Alison took every free minute she had to write. She is currently working on the fourth and final book in the series, as well as several other projects.


She expertly captures the Victorian time period adding lovely flourishes to her descriptions and settings while tucking in discrete comments on the mores of society. This fast paced YA steampunk novel keeps readers of any age turning the pages with a mix of entertainment, mystery, and more as we meet freshly orphaned Miriam, now thrown into the care of guardians, the Marchpanes, who only wants control of her sizable inheritance.

As we wonder exactly who Mana is since everyone seems to have an agenda in this story, she is abducted, and Miriam along with her guardian's children, Simon and Neil, travel on the Night Watchman to find their nanny. Crown Phoenix: Night Watchman Express is a highly entertaining introduction to DeLuca's series and reminded me of Lemony Snicket and Mary Poppins but has so much more to thrill readers of the steampunk genre.

Alison DeLuca's writing is downright gorgeous and quirky which is a perfect mix in steampunk and this novel delivers. I recommend this charming tale to anyone who wants an evening or any time period of fun, insightful reading. Next up on the tour:. The complete tour list.

Next were some of the servants in the house where Miriam and Mana lived, a very difficult thing to accomplish. In The Night Watchman Express , Mana was viewed from the point of view of Miriam, the child, and that was a huge help to me as a writer. Children are prone to love easily, and as Miriam began to truly accept and respect Mana, her governess, the true character of the woman from the islands emerged. It was a very delicate nuance to develop. I thoroughly enjoyed creating Mana, and I hope that one day you will invite her into your imagination as well.
