Abandoned by her mother at a young age, seventeen-year-old Sydney Warner is always vying for attention. She's a thrill seeker with a penchant for extreme sports and a fascination with death.
Withdrawn and broody David from English class is the boy of Syd's dreams, but love soon becomes just another extreme sport when Syd finds out that David has cheated on her.
Betrayal, loneliness, and a shard of glass set Syd on a course of self-destruction.
Will new friends and her love of the stars be enough to pick Syd up from rock bottom and guide her to the path of forgiveness and redemption?
Hi, I’m Megan (pronounced with a long ‘e’). I am the mother of two crazy beautiful girls, living in the rainy, but lovely Pacific Northwest. I’m the most unorganized person I know, but for me, it works. I have an unhealthy obsession with sock monkeys, love pizza, soccer, the color black, kickboxing and the sun.As far as my writing goes, I like to write about the hard things in life, stories that make people think and feel— that resonate with them for days. Part of my goal is to live life profoundly, with enough passion and adventure, maybe a little chaos, so that I may become a great writer. I aspire to never stop learning and growing and to continue trying to perfect my craft.One of my favorite functions as a published writer is to inspire others. I love visiting schools and libraries and motivating aspiring writers to finish their stories and never give up their dreams.When not writing, I’m trying to get my kids to clean or do homework, watching my older one play soccer, my younger one’s music gigs, listening to sad songs, hanging out with friends, strolling the ocean beaches, or walking the Narrows Bridge.
Aside from writing fiction, I also, though sporadically, dabble in poetry, blog regularly, vlog irregularly, having three video series: Chronicles of an Aspiring Writer, Middle Aged Angst, and currently Creative Chaos all viewable here.
I’m a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Pacific Northwest Writers Association, the Apocalypsies, and co-president of the Class of 2k12. I am the authr of two young adult novels, Never Eighteen released from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, January 2012, and Dissected, released November 12, 2013 from Sock Puppet Press.
