ABOUT REGAN MCDONELL
Regan McDonell has spent her life moving back and forth between BC and Ontario, and currently calls Toronto home. She studied poetry and print making at the University of Victoria, and has spent the last twenty years designing textiles, apparel graphics, album covers, tour shirts and luxury 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.
When she’s not travelling, Regan lives in Toronto with her partner, Guy, where she leaves love letters on subways for strangers to find.
