About the Author

Meg Ripley was born in Ontario and raised in Newfoundland, Canada, surrounded by whales and icebergs. After a BFA from the University of Western Ontario with a focus in drawing and an interest women's studies, she won a stint as a fry-cook at the local diner. She set her sights on NYC and an MFA in illustration from The School of Visual Arts. The program's mandatory (ahem, I-can't-believe-they're-making-me-do-this) writing workshop came to hold more value than she could have ever anticipated.Her illustration work for various fashion and design agencies culminated in a tenure as creative director for a brand development firm--but then came her beautiful children, and an idea for a book that she couldn't ignore. These days, she writes horror and dark fantasy from her family's Brooklyn apartment while ceaselessly singing the praises of both boredom and the outdoors to her two sons.


"Necrology has sentences with sharp teeth and characters that feel inhabited by lightning as they search for survival and autonomy in a world that seeks to snuff out their magic. Meg Ripley has created a visceral, vividly rendered cosmos of the mythic and animalistic; a story both familiar and fantastical, both ancient and fresh, highlighting the consequences of our historical narratives and of the history we continue to weave into our collective futures." -Erin Slaughter, author of A Manual for How to Love Us

"Necrology is a lush and stunning debut. This gaslamp horror is full of remarkable characters and a rich, detailed alternate history that will sink you into the story and keep you there. Long after you've finished the final chapter, you'll be left with the feminist urge to get Dirty." -Abigail F. Taylor, author of The Night Begins
