Popular young adult novelist Gretchen McNeil will speak Jan. 9 at Seton Hill University, sponsored by the university's MFA in Popular Fiction program and the Westmoreland Library Network.

Young adult writer Gretchen McNeil , author of several young adult horror/suspense novels, including "Possess," "3:59," "Relic," "Get Even," "Get Dirty," and the award-winning "Ten," will speak at Seton Hill University at 7 p.m. Jan. 9.

The talk, signing, and reception is sponsored by Seton Hill's MFA in Popular Fiction program and the Westmoreland Library Network.

In 2016, McNeil published her first young adult comedy, "I'm Not Your Manic Pixie Dream Girl."

Her next novel will be the horror-comedy "#MurderTrending" for Disney/Freeform.

The film adaptation of "Ten" premiered in September on Lifetime.

On her website, McNeil invites the public to join her for a lecture "all about my books, my career, and how I think opera (McNeil is a trained opera singer) and novel writing are more alike than you might realize."

She adds that the Greensburg event will be her first in Pennsylvania.

The talk is free and open to the public, but a ticket is required for entry.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
