What does Megan do? I love exploring different lands, people, make believe planets (or even real ones), and diverse parts of the universe in my stories. The ability to take the reader to somewhere else, or even to explore their own environment with new eyes, is so much fun.
I also love helping children and adults overcome the fears that are holding them back and start living a courageous life, and I do this through sharing my story of overcoming fear.
School Visits When I visit schools, I share my journey of growing up with dyslexia, discovering the love of reading and writing. In doing so, I hope to encourage and inspire children to not give up when reading and writing is difficult.
If you want to find out more about why I do what I do, and a deeper look into what drives me, I am the featured emerging author on Creative Kids Tales for February 2017. You can read the interview here.
Motivational Speaker I am also available as a motivational speaker. Many people, when they come to know my story, can not believe that I grew up in an abusive home, lived on the streets for two years as a teenager, and I have also lived with a serious illness for over ten years. I love to share how I have overcome the fear that kept me trapped in a bad situation. I now know what to do when fear rears its ugly head, and I long to share what I have learned with others. I now know who I am, and I love living true to myself. Today, I enjoy my life, and look forward to everyday. I would love to share with you what I have learned.
Yes! It is finally happening. My story, Raymund and the Fear Monster, will be on the shelves by late 2017/ early 2018. I have teamed up with my good friend and fellow writers' group member, and award wining illustrator, Ester de Boer. Ester will be illustrating Raymund soI know that it will be amazing.
