Megan Crewe is Here!

Hi Everyone! I have another Debs post for you! Megan Crewe stopped by to talk about her debut novel: GIVE UP THE GHOST.

(I read the ARC, and it was awesome! Definitely unlike any ghost story I’ve read before. Highly Recommended!)

About Give Up the Ghost

Cass McKenna much prefers the company of ghosts over "breathers." Ghosts are uncomplicated and dependable, and they know the dirt on everybody... and Cass loves dirt. She's on a mission to expose the dirty secrets of the poseurs in her school.

But when the vice president of the student council discovers secret, Cass's whole scheme hangs in the balance. Tim wants her to help him contact his recently deceased mother, and Cass reluctantly agrees.

As Cass becomes increasingly entwined in Tim's life, she's surprised to realize he's not so bad--and he needs help more desperately than anyone else suspects. Maybe it's time to give the living another chance...

About Megan Crewe

Like many fiction authors, Megan Crewe finds writing about herself much more difficult than making things up. A few definite facts: she lives in Toronto, Canada with her husband and two cats (and does on occasion say "eh"), she tutors children and teens with special needs, and she has yet to make friends with a ghost, though she welcomes the opportunity.

On to the Interview!

Me: Without giving away too many spoilers, what is your favorite part of the novel/what was the part you had the most fun writing?

Megan: I pretty much love any time Cass and Tim are interacting, particularly the scenes at his house and at the end.

Me: What kind of writing projects are you currently working on? Or, if you aren't working on anything new, is there a different demographic/genre you wouldn't mind tackling in the future?

Megan: Right now I'm working on a YA urban fantasy novel. Considering dipping my toes into historical and science fiction in the future.

Me: Who is your writing hero and why?

Megan: Roald Dahl. He managed to write books that are silly and bizarre, but also deeply moving (consider DANNY THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD and the end of THE WITCHES), and his world-building and eye for detail was amazing.

Me: Awesome!
