Laurence MacNaughton & No Sleep 'Til Doomsday

It’s not often we get an excuse to include discussion of the theremin here on the Rocky Mountain Writer, so we had to jump at the chance when Laurence MacNaughton mentioned he’s been fiddling around with the strange musical device.

However, we would have Laurence on for any reason but in addition to the theremin, his new book No Sleep ‘Til Doomsday launches this month—the third in his fantasy series following It Happened One Doomsday and A Kiss Before Doomsday.

Laurence grew up in a creaky old colonial house in Connecticut that just might’ve been haunted. As a kid, he was a choirboy in a church built in 1754. He also pounded out stories on a shiny black Remington typewriter until he sold his first magazine article at age 19. Since then he’s written numerous novels, novellas, and short stories and his work has been praised by Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, RT Book Reviews, Library Journal, and Booklist.

When he’s not writing, Laurence hikes and bikes in the Colorado Rockies, explores ghost towns, wrenches on classic cars, and, yes, plays the theremin.

Stay tuned after the Q & A for a sample of Laurence reading from No Sleep ‘Til Doomsday.
