    Damned is a 2011 novel by Chuck Palahniuk, which was published by Jonathan Cape (UK) on 1 September 2011, and published by Doubleday (US) on October 18, 2011. The plot concerns Madison Spencer, a thirteen-year-old girl who finds herself in Hell, unsure of why she has been sent there for all eternity, but tries to make the best of it.

    It is based on the structure of Judy Blume novels, particularly Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. The author has described the novel as "if The Shawshank Redemption had a baby by The Lovely Bones and it was raised by Judy Blume." and "it's kind of like The Breakfast Club set in Hell." Palahniuk said the novel was written as a way to deal with the death of his mother from lung cancer in 2009.
  • Melissa Morgan studied Computer Graphics and Graphic Design at New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, Long Island, NY. Working within the NYC design field for several years, she quickly became frustrated with the lack of creative freedom, long hours and high demand.

    As fate would have it - she landed an opportunity as Gallery Director in Soho, NYC. Feeling as though she belonged on the other side of the spectrum she set out to find a place where she could nurture her creative spirit that has driven her entire life.

    Subsequently, this landed her in Madrid, New Mexico where she currently resides and actively pursuing art.
