Joanna Ruth Meyer portraitWOW Teen Reading Ambassadors invite you to meet Joanna Ruth Meyer.

This conversation focuses on Into the Heartless Wood, a YA fantasy based in Welsh traditions. Deep in the wood lives a witch queen and her eight tree siren daughters. For centuries, they have harvested souls to feed the heartless tree. Owen Merrick lives at the edge of the forest, mapping the stars for the king in his father’s observatory. For years, he has resisted venturing over the garden wall, until one day he must enter the woods to find his missing sister.
