Gillian French

Growing up in rural Maine led Gillian French to believe that the mystery of the past is all around. She uses her surroundings as a setting for the dark stories that often have a creepy twist. While she’s never seen a ghost, she’s pretty sure she’s heard ghostly footsteps in the night. Gillian’s short fiction has appeared in various publications and anthologies. Her first YA novel, Grit, was released by HarperCollins in May 2017. She holds a degree in English from the University of Maine, and is perpetually at work on her next novel.
