Megan Smith- Birthday Bash Interview


We are so excited to have the opportunity of interviewing the lovely Megan Smith. Thank you for joining us.

Thank you so much for having me.

What/who inspired you to start writing?

Well I started doing some Beta Reading for Shey Stahl this past winter and after helping her I needed to prove to myself that I could write my own book.

What is your favorite part of a book?

I love the whole book, but Thanksgiving is a favorite part of mine.

When naming your characters, do you give any thought to the actual meaning?

No thought of the meaning when into the name but it took me a few tries until I finally picked the names that worked for me. They have to fit the part in my head.

Would you ever write a different genre?

I never really gave this a thought just yet, I would like to try but we will see what happens.

What advice would you give inspiring writers?

Just Believe! There were so many times when I wanted to give up, but I just kept telling myself to just believe that I can get it done. I even got a tattoo half way through the book on my foot a key and under that it says Just Believe.

What made you come up with your book titles?

It was originally called Fall Into You but I wasn’t feeling it and after listening to a favorite song of mine I came up with Trying Not To Love You.

Who is your favorite character from your books and why?

SMH, that would have to be Hunter. Hunter a little bit of my husband in the looks and some of the things he does. I didn’t plan it that way but as I was writing he just wanted a piece of him. He’s strong, knows what he wants (Even fights what he wants) protective and passionate. 

Who are your top five authors/books
Shey Stahl – Racing on the Edge Series and Waiting for You
Kristen Proby – With Me in Seattle Series
Molly McAdams – Taking Chances
S.C. Stephens – Thoughtless, Effortless and Reckless
Gail Mchugh - Collide

Tell us five things about you that we would not know

Super Shy
I’ve been with my hubby since I was 16
I have ADD so it makes writing hard at times
I hate Cheese
I’ve never been on an airplane

Thank you for taking part.

You are welcome!
