Let’s start things off with you. Tell our readers and me a little bit about you and one random interesting fact!
Hiya! I’m Meg and I write Contemporary and Fantasy Romance. Interesting fact about me… red pandas are my favorite animal! When I am having a bad day I will watch youtube videos that feature them 🙂
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not writing?
I am a giant video game nerd, so I am usually playing one of those if I’m not sleeping or bingeing on Netflix.
When did you start writing?
I started writing when I was young, mostly poems, but when I was 11 I wrote and finished my first terrible novel. I’m pretty sure my mom has a copy of it saved somewhere. I started getting serious about writing earlier this year and for the first time in a decade finished a story!
Tell me about what it was like for you writing and publishing your first book.
Surreal. I sent my book to a couple people as a joke and pretty much got threatened with bodily harm if I didn’t finish it. So I did and about two months later it was published. The fact that something that came out of my brain is out and the world and people genuinely seem to like it is freaking nuts.
Can you tell me a little bit about your recently published novel?
Mother of Shadows is the first in my fantasy romance series. It starts off with Helena learning that she is the girl mentioned in a prophecy she grew up hearing. So now, not only is she this prophecied ruler, she also inherits craptons of magic and has to learn how to use it, while also trying to find her soulmate. It does end in a cliffhanger though, so fair warning.
What’s your favorite part about being an author?
Making my stories come to life and sharing them with others. Having people that are as invested in the outcome as I am is my favorite!
Where do you get your best ideas?
I brainstorm a lot in traffic, but the moments between hitting the snooze button, when I’m awake but mostly dreaming… that’s where some of my best scenes have come to life.
What are you currently working on? Do you have any new projects coming up?
I’m currently finishing Book 2 in the Chosen series: Reign of Ash, which is due out in January. I also have two short stories coming out soon. One is a holiday contemporary romance in the 25 Days of Christmas anthology which comes out Dec 1st. The other is a PNR novella that is part of the Vixen Falls anthology coming out in January. 🙂
