ABOUT Megan Curd

Megan Curd
Megan Curd is a graduate of Northwestern College in St. Paul, Minnesota. While having always enjoyed reading any books she could get her hands on, Megan didn't begin writing until a friend encouraged her to do so while in college. 



AVERY PIKE is a commodity. No, more than a commodity. Her existence is guarded at all costs.

She's a water Elementalist, the strongest of her dwindling kind. She creates steam to provide energy to fuel Dome Four: the only thing standing between humanity and an earth ravaged by World War III. No steam, no Dome. No Dome, no life.

Or so she thinks.

That is, until a mysterious man offers her a way out of having to donate steam. A way to escape the corrupt government of Dome Four. While the offer seems too good to be true, Avery is intrigued. But when she arrives to her new home, she realizes the grass isn't any less dead on this side of the fence. Instead, the lies are just hidden better.

...Which means digging deeper.

When Avery enlists the help of her friends to uncover the truth, she learns that while some secrets are better left concealed, humankind was never meant to live in a cage. And when you can control the most sought after resource, you can learn to control anything...including the fate of your world.

"Steampunk, dystopian, with a twist of paranormal, a dash of romance and a helping of back-stabbing betrayal...oh, and a hot guy with dreads and an attitude. What more can you ask for? Curd has really outdone herself with this intriguing read that will leave you guessing." 
--Kristie Cook, bestselling author of the SOUL SAVERS Series & THE SPACE BETWEEN
"Steel Lily is a rollicking Steampunk adventure with mechanical wonders, heart-stopping danger, and a plucky heroine who more than holds her own with a tortured swoon-worthy hero." 
--Michelle Zink, author of TEMPTATION OF ANGELS

"Spread the word like wild fire--Steel Lily is AH-MAH-ZING...WOW--let me tell you something. I am amazed at the wonder Megan has created. This is magic!"
--Leydy, Once Upon A Twilight

"Steel Lily packs a punch. It is full of adventure and intrigue, and kept me turning pages well into the night. A little bit steam-punk, a little bit dystopia, and entirely its own beautiful thing, this is a novel that will appeal to readers of all ages."
--Danielle Kulawiak, My Mercurial Musings
"Megan Curd has created a masterpiece that glues readers to the pages from the very beginning, taking them on a whirlwind journey full of adventure, deceit, mystery, mayhem, and of course, a little swoon-worthy romance as well."
