ABOUT REGAN MCDONELL
Regan studied poetry, film and print making at the University of Victoria, and has spent the last two decades designing apparel graphics, album covers, tour shirts and carpets, while also writing literary fiction for teens.
Her White Pine Award Honour Book, BLACK CHUCK, is a dark, gritty, small-town drama reminiscent of The Outsiders, 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."
She is currently working on 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.
Regan lives in Toronto with her partner, Guy, where she leaves love letters on subways for strangers to find.
