About

mke_headshotMegan K. England is an author and YA librarian who grew up on the Space Coast of Florida and now calls the mountains of Virginia home. Before that, she was an experimental music composer, a book store clerk, a concessions worker, a customer service punching bag, a teaching assistant, and many other things that will never be nearly as cool.

Megan is queer in both sexuality and gender, uses she/her or they/them pronouns, and is a fierce defender of fandom, fanworks, and fan culture. She’s open about her own mental health struggles and writes frequently about the intersections of mental health, creative work, and the writing community. When she’s not writing or librarianing, she can be found rolling dice at the gaming table, going to conventions, climbing on things the woods, feeding her video game addiction, or improvising truly terrible songs about her dogs.

She loves Star Wars with a desperate, heedless passion. Never bring up Sherlock Holmes in her presence. You will regret it.

Megan is represented by the incomparable Barbara Poelle of the Irene Goodman Literary Agency.

You can find Megan on YouTube co-hosting the live show Tea & Type along with critique partner and co-mentor extraordinaire Jamie Pacton. You can also find her on twitter, instagram, and occasionally tumblr. You can now add her debut YA space opera, THE DISASTERS, to your goodreads list. It’ll be out on December 18th, 2018.

Megan is also a two-time Pitch Wars mentor and a class of 2015 mentee, a TeenPit mentor, and has served as a NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison.
