About

At the tender age of however-many years old, Megan Fuentes told a lie. As a punishment, television time was taken away for a week. The second time she told a lie, computer time was taken away for a week. The third and final time, her parents did something both creative and diabolical.

They took away her pen and paper.

She was inconsolable. She tried to explain her woes to her peers, but all they had to offer were funny looks and gentle suggestions to go outside (which she didn’t take).

That was not the first sign that Megan was destined to walk the path of a writer, but it was the one that probably should’ve woken her up to that fact. Yet she remained oblivious for years afterward.

The realization came in the fourth grade. Her language arts teacher asked, after reading a particularly chilling thriller using all twenty spelling words, “Have you ever thought about becoming an author?”
From that point on, Megan wrote or daydreamed about writing every minute of her day. She scribbled stories in class when she was supposed to be taking notes. She begged her father to let her use his computer, and then to buy her a laptop of her own, which was immediately used to download a word processor and get to work on the next great American novel.

Now Megan writes flash fiction and women’s historical fiction. With her active imagination and can-do attitude, you may see her attempt to write in every other genre imaginable just for kicks.
