“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.
