We are pleased to welcome author Megan Miranda signing her debut adult suspense novel All the Missing Girls. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called Megan’s latest a “Fiendishly plotted thriller…Miranda convincingly conjures a haunted setting that serves as a character in its own right, but what really makes this roller-coaster so memorable is her inspired use of reverse chronology, so that each chapter steps further back in time, dramatically shifting the reader’s perspective.” Megan is a prolific young adult writer whose latest YA novel, The Safest Lies, was published in May. We’ll talk characters, suspense, writing YA versus adult mysteries, and much more!
