Professional information

Bio
Maureen McGowan is the National Bestselling author of two popular YA series including the dystopian thriller series: The Dust Chronicles. She writes exciting, fast-paced novels, enjoyed by teen and adult readers alike.

Maureen always loved writing fiction, but side-tracked by a persistent practical side, it took her a few years to channel her energy into novels. After leaving a career in finance and accounting, she hasn’t looked back.

Aside from her love of books, she’s passionate about films, fine handcrafted objects and shoes. She lives in Toronto where she loves attending the film festival every year.

Her most recent titles include: Deviants (Oct, 2012), Compliance (June, 2013), Glory (coming June 10, 2014).
