Bio

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. Her YA contemporary coming of age novel, GIRL ON THE RUN, was chosen by the Canadian Children's Book Centre as a BEST BOOK for TEENS for 2016. 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.

Swoon Author B.R. Myers: A New Title Fit for Space Royalty

The title for Never Once came from the last words spoken at the end of the book. I thought it was fitting as a fairy tale retelling and I liked the simplicity. Shortly after Swoon acquired my story, Holly told me the title would probably change. From a marketing perspective the original title didn’t quite fit with the sci-fi setting ... Read More
