Megan Collins publishes debut novel

MEGAN COLLINS for Web (2)We are so excited to announce that Megan Collins (Poetry ’08) has published her debut novel, The Winter Sister!  The book was released last week, and has already been a hit with reviewers and readers alike.  A contemporary suspense novel inspired by the Greek myth of Persephone, it begins sixteen years ago, when Sylvie’s sister Persephone didn’t come home. Out too late with the boyfriend she was forbidden to see, Persephone was missing for three days before her body was found–and years later, her murder remains unsolved. Now, Sylvie returns home to care for her estranged, alcoholic mother undergoing cancer treatment, and in the process, begins to uncover the truth about what really happened to Persephone.

The Winter Sister is a 2019 anticipated read from PopSugar, Marie Claire, and Goodreads.  Kirkus Reviews called it “a bewitching thriller, with surprises detonating in nearly every chapter.”

Congratulations, Megan!  We’re so happy for you.FINAL (2)
