Next week author John “I’m not the other” Langan reads!
Sarah Langan is the best-selling and award-winning author of The Missing, The Keeper, and Audrey’s Door, along with numerous short stories. In addition to writing novels, she is also pursuing her Master’s in Environmental Health Science/Toxicology at New York University.
Sarah’s novels are prime examples of what a smart, literate, contemporary horror novel should be. And I’m forever grateful that she took the time out of her crazy-busy schedule to read “The Two-Headed Girl.”
Sarah is one of the original jurors and one of the co-founders of the Shirley Jackson Awards. Not only is she a top-notch writer, but is fiercely intelligent and extremely hard-working, and her genuine passion for dark/horrific literature is inspiring. That and she gets along with my sis-cuz Jennifer at parties, so she’s all right by me!
