-About the Author:
Hi everyone! My name is Megan Nagle, and I’m the author of the fantasy series Daughter of the Mountain. My first book of the series, Azurite, was just released February 2015. I was born and raised in Florida, so I’m a beach girl at heart. Some of my favorite things are God, reading, writing, traveling, animals, and coffee.
-Have you always wanted to be a writer? Why?
I always wrote for fun but I never knew how to make a career out of it, so I got my degree in accounting instead. A couple years ago I realized that it is more important to do what you love and what’s close to your heart because that’s what’ll make you happy in the end.
-When your writing where do you draw inspiration from?
A lot of things! I read all the time, and I love movies. I also adore being out in nature and I’ve found that just relaxing outside watching the sun set can bring loads of inspiration.
-What interested you to write the genre you write?
Fantasy has always been my favorite genre because it enables us to make the impossible possible. I can travel to different worlds without ever leaving the house.
-What else have you written?
I’ve personally written some short stories and novellas. One of them is about a B-17 bomber crew during World War II.
-What is your method for getting around writers block?
I usually have to stop writing and think on it for a couple of days. During that time the scene will slowly build in my mind and then I can write it.
-Do you have any advice or words of wisdom for aspiring writers?
Keep writing and keep reading. Have others in your field critique your work and give honest feedback. Most important, never give up.
-Where do you see yourself in five years?
I’m hoping to have my series done in the next five years. But I have dozens ideas for books and I plan on writing them all 🙂
-How can your readers follow you and find out about your books?
My website is megandentnagle.com You can also find me on Twitter @mdentnagle and of course Goodreads.
-What is your newest release? Is there anything you would like to say about it to your readers?
The first book of my series is called Azurite. I just want to thank every one who takes the time to read my book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
