ABOUT REGAN MCDONELL
Regan writes dark, literary fiction for mature teens. Her 2019 White Pine Award Honour Book, BLACK CHUCK, is a gritty, small-town coming-of-age novel that Booklist called "a superb debut," School Library Journal says is "a read that sticks in the gut," and Kirkus Reviews noted for "dynamically complex characterization and storytelling." See more reviews on the Books page of this website.
She recently completed a new YA novel about a small town, a monster, a missing girl, and her heavy metal brother who is unwittingly enlisted to find her, and is now working on her next book, about a deeply creepy music school.
Regan lives in Toronto with her partner, Guy, where she leaves love letters on subways for strangers to find.
She is a proud member of CANSCAIP, HWA and The Writer's Union of Canada.
