What made Megan want to write Romantic Comedy?
When the pandemic hit in 2020, a lot changed. I gave birth to my second son and was struggling to stay motivated to write. I stopped and started several projects before I realized that everything I was writing was really depressing. It wasn't helping my mental health in a time that was hard enough already. As an escape, I dove into reading RomCom novels. It then occurred to me that this kind of writing made me happy. And I wanted to write something that would make me (and others) happy.
This world needs more 'happily ever afters'.
Does Megan believe in happily ever afters?
Absolutely! I am the product of a 'happily ever after'. My parents met in 10th grade Geometry and were together until the day my father passed away (8 years of dating + 46 years of marriage).
I am also living my own 'happily ever after' with my husband and our children.
