Always in the mood for a good scare, B.R. Myers spent most of her teen years behind the covers of Lois Duncan, Ray Bradbury, and Stephen King. When she's not putting her characters in awkward situations, she works as a registered nurse. A member of the Writer's Federation of Nova Scotia, she lives in Halifax with her husband and two children—and there is still a stack of books on her bedside table.
She is the author of nine YA novels. Her contemporary coming age novel, GIRL ON THE RUN was a CCBC Best Book for Teens pick in 2016. Her most recent publication, ROGUE PRINCESS (Jan 2020, Macmillan) was chosen as a Top Ten Best Audiobook from School Library Journal.
As Daphne Dubois she writes contemporary romance in Canadian settings with tortured, but polite Canadian heroes. She believes finding the right book at the right time makes all the difference. THE RIGHT FIT was featured in Cosmopolitan’s online publication and was published by The Wild Rose Press in April 2017.
