Weariland, by Mary Shotwell
Genre: YA
Release Date: May 10th 2016
Merge Publishing


For fifteen-year-old Lason Davies, it all started with a text.


The last words of her murdered grandmother haunt Lason as she travels to England with her sheltering mother for the funeral. The crime is a sensation, but the clamoring reporters and news photographers aren’t the only ones interested in their arrival.

As her mother’s behavior borders on erratic (on a good day), Lason encounters a stranger from Weariland, a dreary world once known as Wonderland. He petitions Lason’s help in finding a secret family heirloom, a key to saving his
land—and to Lason’s past. Lason is swept in an adventure through Weariland’s unpredictable realm, encountering colorful, fantastical characters and discovering her family’s elusive history. But if she isn’t careful, she may never return…

maryshotwellAbout the Author
Mary grew up in northeast Ohio, so it was only natural for her to pursue
a degree in marine biology. After studying dolphin behavior and estimating great white shark
populations, she earned her Ph.D. in Biostatistics in Charleston, South Carolina. It was there, during the
arduous dissertation process, where she had the idea to write a book.

With Alice and the
crazy characters from Wonderland staring her down from her bedroom poster, Mary envisioned what
that fantasy realm would look like in current day. Creative writing served as a natural escape from
technical writing, wedding planning, pregnancy, and job hunting.

Mary is excited to debut
Weariland (Merge Publishing, 2016), a novel introducing Lason Davies, a teenager who learns about her
family’s past in a world once called Wonderland. She currently resides in Tennessee with her husband
and three children.
