Meet the Authors
The Lady from the Black Lagoon - As a young woman working in the horror film industry, Mallory O’Meara was thrilled to discover that one of her favorite movies featured a monster designed by a woman. But few know of Milicent Patrick's work and identity because, as O'Meara was soon to discover, her legacy was credited to--and essentially eradicated by--a man.
O’Meara set out to right the wrong, and in the process discovered the fascinating story of an ambitious, artistic woman ahead of her time. This true-life detective story and celebration of a forgotten feminist trailblazer calls out a Hollywood culture where little has changed since.
