About

mke_headshotMegan K. England is a writer and YA librarian living in the mountainy parts of Virginia. 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. Young Adult is her category of choice for both writing and librarianing; she spends her days hanging out with teens at the library and thinks they’re the best people to write about.

Megan is queer in both sexuality and gender, and is a fierce defender of fandom, fanworks, and fan culture. When she’s not writing or librarianing, Megan 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 around her. 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 weekly 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.

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.
