“In The Book of Laney, an unsettling and redemptive novel, Myfanwy Collins fuses heartbreak and empathy to explore uncomfortable truths about teenagers, violence, and survival. An unforgettable book.” — Roxane Gay, author of An Untamed State and Bad Feminist
I live in Massachusetts with my husband, our child, and our tail-chasing dog. When I’m not writing and mothering, I teach creative writing to adults and volunteer at my local library and for a local literary festival. I have also published a collection of my short fiction, I Am Holding Your Hand, and a novel Echolocation.
I am represented by Penn Whaling at the Ann Rittenberg Literary Agency.
