Today’s post is all about one of YA Mania’s featured authors, Megan Duke!
If you’ve been following my blog from the start you know that I absolutely OBSESSED with Megan Duke’s books. Megan has written Small Circles, Three Sixty, and Ninety Degrees– which are all amazing books that I recommend everyone to read as soon as you can! I’ve told Megan this in the past, and I’ve also written a blog post about it, but these books really spoke to me on a personal level. I was able to relate so much with one of the characters and it really gave me hope that things would get better and that it’s okay for me to be happy. They taught me to embrace life and make the best of what I have because I never know what can happen. I can honestly say that this series is in my top three favorite series of all tome- no lie. So you can imagine how ecstatic I am that Megan is driving all the way from TENNESSEE to come to YA Mania. It’s unreal and I cannot wait. Here’s Megan’s official bio from Goodreads:
Megan Duke was born in 1992 and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. She currently resides there with her fiance, Trent. Megan has spent most of her young adult life writing. She attended fashion school at the International Academy of Design and Technology in Nashville for one year, but after realizing her true passion, she left school and pursued a writing career.
Megan is best known for the coming of age novel, Small Circles. Before releasing that particular story, or its companion: Three Sixty, she began writing a futuristic sci/fi trilogy called The Mind Breaker Accounts. Since then, she has planned to write two more companions to the coming of age novel, as well as finish the Mind Breakers trilogy with the final book planned for release in 2015.
For Megan, telling a story is more than just writing words. To her, it’s about sharing something that could possibly make a difference. Whether that be through futuristic fiction driven by the power of mind control, or a simple contemporary novel about friendship and happiness, it’s the impact that matters, so read on!
She continues to write every day.
