Megan Westfield has dabbled in many hobbies and pastimes over the years, ranging from playing the cello to cake decorating (i.e., icing-eating) to a dozen different outdoor adventure sports. Eventually, she discovered the only way to do it all was though writing—her first and strongest passion. She writes new adult fiction because she loves exploring the powerful and formative years between high school and the quarter-life crisis.

Megan grew up in Washington state, attended college in Oregon, and lived in Virginia, California, and Rhode Island during her five years as a navy officer. She is now a permanent resident of San Diego w

I know a lot of authors who keep Pinterest boards of actors and actresses for inspiration as they work on a manuscript. I kept a Pinterest board as well, but it's pretty much all gorgeous photos of Yosemite, not people. So, I actually don't know! I'll have to think about it. Did anyone come to mind as you read? (less)

Upcoming Event at Run for Cover Bookstore

San Diego County locals: I’ll be giving a talk and signing books alongside New York author Alice Kaltman on Sunday, Feb. 3. The two of us connected some years back because we both write young adult fiction that features sporty girls, which isn’t very common. 

She’ll be talking about her surfer-girl book, Wavehouse (I’ve read it, it’s fantastic). I’ll be talking about Leaving Everest, which ce

Quotes by Megan Westfield  (?)

“Even if he survived the Sorcerer, there would always be another Sorcerer, bigger and more dangerous than the last. It was just a matter of time until he died the kind of gruesome death that was the very reason people had paralyzing phobias of heights.”
Megan Westfield, Lessons in Gravity

“As they kissed, the valley and the surrounding cliffs
spun and toppled upside down. The saturated greens of the grasses, the stark white of the waterfall, and the warm grays of the cliffs merged and streamed past them in ethereal ribbons, like barely blended paint. Then the blinding blue sky bobbed back into place overhead, and the world was open and free, bursting with sublime majesty.”
Megan Westfield, Lessons in Gravity

“You asked why I couldn't forgive you," Nick said, very quietly, and I jumped a little. "It was because you were the love of my life, Harper. And you didn't want to be. That's hard to let go.”

“Helen studies her reflection, a crumpled, faded version of their daughter, now twenty-eight years old, living in Los Angeles, single, defensive, but gainfully employed. Helen used to worry about her bristly daughter all the time, but John takes up all the anxiety parking spots now.”
Alice Kaltman, Staggerwing
