My young adult novel, THE BOOK OF LANEY, is forthcoming from Lacewing Books in 2015. Here’s what people are saying about it:

“Myfanwy Collins writes with big-time empathy and fierce courage.” — Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook and Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock

“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.

If you wish to contact me, please send me an email, or reach out to me on FacebookTwitter, Instagram, Goodreads, Google+, and tumblr.

I am represented by Penn Whaling at the Ann Rittenberg Literary Agency.
