Meg Tilly is the author of two adult novels, Singing Songs (Penguin/ Dutton, A Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection, 1994) and Gemma (St. Martin's Press). Her first young adult novel, Porcupine, was released by Tundra/McClelland & Stewart in 2007, and was shortlisted for a BC Book Prize, the Canadian Libraries Association Best Children's Book 2008 and Foreword Magazine Book of the Year Award 2008. It also was an Ontario Library Top Ten Best Bets 2008. First Time, a reluctant reader, was released by Orca in 2008.
Tilly is also known for her work in her former career as a film actress. Some of her better known films include, The Big Chill and Agnes of God, for which she won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Oscar.
At present she is both writing and dipping her toe back in the acting world. She is delighted to be appearing as Martha, in the Blue Bridge production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. At present she is working on yet another rewrite of her untitled adult manuscript. Her new middle grade manuscript, A Taste of Heaven, is out with various editors, looking for a home.
Her three children are grown, so she and her husband are now splitting their time between Vancouver Island and Toronto.
