About this author

Léna Roy was raised in New York City, in the cloistered environs of a theological seminary, with extracurricular education provided by Manhattan's club scene. She worked as a bartender, an actor, and as a therapist with at-risk adolescents before finding her voice as a writer in Young Adult fiction. When not writing and spending time with her family, she is teaching creative writing workshops for kids and teens from 8-18 with Writopia Lab in both NYC and Northern Westchester. Her inspiration and touchstone is her late grandmother, author Madeleine L’Engle, who was able to transform the solitary nature of writing into a sacred sense of community where her art and the art of others could flourish. EDGES is her first novel.

Elizabeth Lawrence Thanks for the add, Lena!


message 3: by Léna

Léna Roy Thank you so much Kristen - I'm looking forward to getting to know you through our love of books!


Kristen Your debut looks fantastic! Thanks for adding me as a friend!


Donald Hi Lena,

Good to see you here. I browsed through your book shelves. I think our ratings are pretty similar on the books we have in common. It took me a long time to think back on all the books I've read- I'm sure you'll have the same kind of problem. One day, I hope to see "The Unreals" on your shelves....

Btw, congrats on the publication date and the blog. I read a few of your entries and enjoyed them. You must be getting pretty excited....
