Genre-hopping teen author writes strong heroines, dark storylines          

Although she writes in a variety of genres-- from dystopian science fiction (Not a Drop to Drink) to gothic historical thriller (A Madness So Discreet) to contemporary (The Female of the Species)-- one word goes a long way to describe any Mindy McGinnis novel: dark.

McGinnis, who won the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Young Adult Fiction in 2016, knows her audience, having worked in a high school library for 15 years, before leaving to write full-time. Her other books include In a Handful of Dust, Given to the Sea and This Darkness Mine, which was released earlier this month.
