Megan answered J. Lorenzin's question: Megan Crane
I don't really believe in mental block. It's usually your book trying to tell you something, or a little pause to figure out some plot or character points before moving forward. You can either push through it, which always feels gross but gets more w See Full Answer

“I think the important thing to remember is that all relationships benefit from a bit of breathing room. Especially friendships. It's only when you find yourself without the women who understand you that you realize there are very few women who will.”
Megan Crane, Frenemies

“The truth was that I'd been spending years running away from myself. I hid myself in drama, silliness, stupidity, banality. So afraid to grow up. So afraid to involve myself in relationships where I might be expected to give the same love I got - instead of sixth-grade shenanigans. I bored myself with all the when I grow up nonsense, but I was worried it would never happen even as I longed for it.”
Megan Crane, Frenemies

“I had a rule about stilettos, and it was this: I didn't wear them unless I planned to kick ass in them. Stilettos were for striding and sauntering, never sulking.”
Megan Crane, Frenemies

message 7: by Megan

Megan That's awesome!! Hooray for Book Clubs!

Charity Megan,

I went to an Alumni Book Club group last night and met a guy (Tom) who said he had read your English as a Second Language book and convinced his other book club to read some of your work! It was really cool to randomly meet another Megan Crane fan at an English Department alumni group! :)

Happy writing,

Carmen Thank you for adding me back as a friend :)

message 4: by Jana

Jana Happy holidays, Megan!

Mahsaa Awake! for Morning in the Bowl of Night

Has flung the Stone that puts the Stars to Flight:

And Lo! the Hunter of the East has caught

The Sultan's Turret in a Noose of Light.


Dreaming when Dawn's Left Hand was in the Sky

I heard a Voice within the Tavern cry,

"Awake, my Little ones, and fill the Cup

"Before Life's Liquor in its Cup be dry."


And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before

The Tavern shouted--"Open then the Door!

"You know how little while we have to stay,

"And, once departed, may return no more."


Now the New Year reviving old Desires,

The thoughtful Soul to Solitude retires,

Where the WHITE HAND OF MOSES on the Bough

Puts out, and Jesus from the Ground suspires.



Iram indeed is gone with all its Rose,

And Jamshyd's Sev'n-ring'd Cup where no one knows;

But still the Vine her ancient Ruby yields,

And still a Garden by the Water blows.


And David's Lips are lock't; but in divine

High piping Pehlevi, with "Wine! Wine! Wine!

"Red Wine!"---the Nightingale cries to the Rose

That yellow Cheek of hers to incarnadine.


Come, fill the Cup, and in the Fire of Spring

The Winter Garment of Repentance fling:

The Bird of Time has but a little way

To fly---and Lo! the Bird is on the Wing.

Harlequin Historical Hi, I'm very happy to meet you and look forward to discussing books with you. If you ever have any questions about any of the titles on my shelves, please ask away. I'll be happy to answer them.
