Megan Shepherd grew up in her family's independent bookstore in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The travel bug took her from London to Timbuktu and many places in between, though she ended up back in North Carolina with her husband, two cats, and a scruffy dog, and she wouldn't want to live anywhere else. She is the author of the Madman's Daughter and Cage trilogies. Visit her online at www.meganshepherd.com.
"Shepherd is a master of pacing, and each chapter brings new
"Swoon-worthy and thrilling"--Kirkus Reviews
"Will make readers squirm, even as it causes them to reflect on what it means to be human."--Booklist
Praise for HER DARK CURIOSITY: "Secrets and mad scientists offer a gory gothic adventure."--Kirkus Reviews
Praise for HER DARK CURIOSITY: "Shepherd's integration of romance into her nods to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Jack the Ripper is masterful, and she does not back down from a hugely dark cliff-hanger ending. Bosoms, prepare to heave--and throats, prepare to scream."--Booklist
Praise for THE MADMAN'S DAUGHTER: "Unexpected twists and a cliffhanger ending that should leave [readers] craving more."--Publishers Weekly
Praise for THE MADMAN'S DAUGHTER: "The fast-paced book is rife with excitement, romance, and intrigue."\--School Library Journal (starred review)
