Megan

Megan is from Chicago, where she grew up eating ice cream straight out of the carton, crying over movies, rearranging her bookshelves every three months, and writing best at two in the morning. She still does all of these things. She graduated with a BA in English Literature, which has led her to a brilliant career of collecting Shakespeare plays, enforcing the Oxford comma, and pretending she's a writer. Professionally, she sells books and drinks tea. Unprofessionally, she flails about Star Wars, writes, plays video games, and stargazes in her driveway. She is far too invested in chocolate-covered pretzels, Greco-Roman mythology, and hoping fictional people will kiss.

Megan runs the store's social media, so if you've seen a Facebook or blog post with a typo recently, it's her fault (though she tries really hard to fix the typos). Mostly, she reads fantasy and sci-fi (and teen fantasy/sci-fi), but she peppers in enough biographies, contemporary fiction, and graphic novels to consider herself at least semi-well-rounded. She finds writing about herself in the third person to be very odd, and is going to stop now. 

Here, There Be Dragons (Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica, The #1) Cover Image
By James A. Owen, James A. Owen (Illustrator)

Published: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers - October 23rd, 2007

Not only is James A. Owen an amazing human being, he's also one of my favorite writers ever. This is the first book in one of my top series: a fantastical journey about a magical atlas of imaginary places and those entrusted in keeping it--and the magical lands it depicts--safe. Those caretakers are, naturally, none other than JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Charles Williams, and HG Wells. If you like mythology or classic adventure novels, there are hidden (and not-so-hidden) references to find scattered throughout, Arthurian legends rubbing shoulders with Peter Pan and Captain Nemo. There are pirates and magic and time travel and airships, and there's nothing to dislike about this stunningly beautiful and surprisingly deep series.
