Marly Youmans is the author of four books of poetry and seven of fiction, including five novels and two Southern fantasies for young adults. In the past year, she served on the National Book Award-YPL judging panel and published three books in three countries: a collection of formal poems, The Foliate Head (Stanza Press, UK), now in second printing; a long adventure in blank verse, Thaliad (Phoenicia Publishing, Montreal); and a novel from Mercer University Press, A Death at the White Camellia Orphanage (winner of The Ferrol Sams Award and the silver award for fiction in the ForeWord Book of the Year Awards). Both recent poetry books are strikingly decorated by artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins of Wales.
