“When you look at what C.S. Lewis is saying, his message is so anti-life, so cruel, so unjust. The view that the Narnia books have for the material world is one of almost undisguised contempt. At one point, the old professor says, ‘It’s all in Plato’ — meaning that the physical world we see around us is the crude, shabby, imperfect, second-rate copy of something much better. I want to emphasize the simple physical truth of things, the absolute primacy of the material life, rather than the spiritual or the afterlife.

[The New York Times interview, 2000]”

Tori Stegle I can't tell you how excited I am for your The Cage series. It's definitely on my Most Anticipated Reads list! It sound so fresh and mysterious and otherworldly. Bring it on Megan! :)


message 5: by Shawn

Shawn Wickersheim Thanks for the friendship. I really enjoyed The Madman's Daughter and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Have a great day.


İlkim Hello, thanks for the friendship :) I loved Madman's Daughter, waiting for the next ones :)


Davonna Juroe Hello Megan,

Thanks for the friendship. MADMAN'S DAUGHTER looks fascinating. I love YA's that take history and blend it with a classic, especially an H.G. Wells story. Good luck to you with the recent release! Very exciting!


Eugenia (Genie In A Book) Thanks for friending, can't wait to read your book!


Marts  (Thinker) Hi Megan, good to meet you...
