Recently, Bethany’s YA debut was announced. The first in a two-book deal with Tor Teen, A SONG BELOW WATER is a contemporary fantasy set in Porland, Oregon, about play-sisters, Tavia and Effie, who both have (and struggle to contain) a supernatural identity in a world where magical Black girls are feared.
Her adult debut is an ABA 2018 Indies Introduce pick, and a June Indie Next pick. A speculative literary novel, MEM is set in an alternate 1920s Montreal, where memory extraction is possible. The procedure results in a physical being – a Mem. Dolores Extract No. 1 is one such being, except that unlike all the rest, she knows who and what she is, and she knows she shouldn’t have lasted this long.
A former expat now living in the American Northeast (with one foot still firmly planted in Quebec), Bethany C Morrow writes speculative literary fiction, snacks, and loves her boys – one man, one boy and one silly dog.
