jem_53152In the fifteen years since Meagan first took up the pen professionally, she’s served as lead editor for a flash fiction magazine, graduated from the Craftsman level of the Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writers Guild, done numerous freelance projects, judged contests and finalized in others. She is a regular contributor for Lifeway’s Journey magazine, a communications associate by trade, and scribbler by nature.

She’s a night owl and coffee enthusiast (those two things are probably linked), and she rarely says no to an adventure (unless it involves getting up super early, breaking the law, or any similarly disagreeable experience). Her dream is to travel to as many countries as possible to gather and tell the stories of what God is doing in the lives of his people.

A dozen facts about Meagan:

  • She wrote her first story as soon as she knew how to put letters together.
  • Her favorite authors are Lynn Austin and Charlotte Bronte.
  • She’d crossed the equator and international date line at least eight times before she was 25.
  • A former barista, she can draw a fern better with steamed milk than she can with a pencil.
  • You’ll never find her hokey-pokeying in the fast lane. Or the slow lane. Or hokey-pokeying at all. (Heck, she can’t even talk slowly.)
  • Twelfth generation American, she has pilgrims, presidents, and pyromaniacs in her family tree.
  • The glass if half full. She has logic to back her up.
  • She’s an enneagram type 4 and an INFJ. (Double whammy.)
  • She enjoys editing as much as writing.
  • She prefers flannel over silk.
  • Having bungy jumped and sky dived, the next thing on her buck list is paragliding. (That, or shark diving.)
  • Her dream vacation is to see Europe one coffee shop at a time.
