Today I get the pleasure of having Meghan Bostic, author of Never Eighteen!
Before we get started, here's a bit about Never Eighteen!
I had the dream again. The one where I’m running. I don’t know what from or where to, but I’m scared, terrified really.
Austin Parker is never going to see his eighteenth birthday. At the rate he’s going, he probably won’t even see the end of the year. But in the short time he has left there’s one thing he can do: He can try to help the people he loves live—even though he never will.
It’s probably hopeless.
But he has to try.
Megan (that’s with a long “e”) Bostic is just a girl trying to find her place in the universe. Despite the rain and gray (she’s truly solar powered) she’s lived in the Pacific Northwest her whole life, and still does, with her two crazy beautiful girls.
She’s full of angst, is neurotic, narcissistic, and an all-around great girl. She speaks sarcasm and teen drama fluently and doesn’t believe in isms.
She thrives on the challenges faced on her journey to publication and has documented it on her blog and vlog. You can find her Chronicles of an Aspiring Writer on Youtube. She now vlogs about her Middle Aged Angst, which can be found on the same Youtube channel.
Her writing process she lovingly calls “organized chaos”. She writes on her laptop at the kitchen table next to the sliding glass door so she can absorb as much sun as she can. The “organized” part of the process mostly takes place in her head, the “chaos” is pretty much how she sits down and writes with reckless abandon, not stopping to fix, revise, edit, or even breathe until she’s done. Of course this is all done with the help of thousands of sticky notes.
When not writing, Megan can be found in “Sapphire”, her beloved blue car, chauffeuring her teenage daughters and their friends to games, the mall and whatever their whim of the day. If not in the car you can find her on the soccer field watching her girls play, surfing through Netflix trying to find something to watch, trying desperately to have a social life, walking the beach at the ocean, or finding ways to avoid exercise.
Megan loves the color black, monkeys, has a knee sock fetish, and is a notorious Facebook addict. She’s a proud member of The Class of 2K12 and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. You can also find her on Twitter, Goodreads, and anywhere else cool authors hang out.
(isn’t it awkward when people talk about themselves in third person?)
