Megan Shepherd is one of our favorite local writers! She grew up in her family's independent bookstore in North Carolina. An avid reader and world traveler who spent several years in the Peace Corps, Megan now lives with her husband in Asheville, North Carolina. The Madman's Daughter is based on H.G. Wells's "The Island of Dr. Moreau" and told from the point of view of the mad doctor's 16-year-old daughter. School Library Journal describes it as a "dark novel that blends the basic premise of the original with new insights, characters, and terror." The sequel, Her Dark Curiosity, is due out in January.
