In the thirteen years since Meagan first took up the pen professionally, she’s served as lead editor for the flash fiction magazine Splickety, graduated from the Craftsman level of the Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writers Guild, judged numerous ACFW contests, and has been a First Impressions finalist. Her writing has appeared in sources such as CBN.com, Journey, Devozine, Spark, Live, and a book of devotionals compiled and published by John Brown University. In her time as editor of Splickety, she had the privilege of teaching other writers the craft of storytelling via Christian Fiction Online Magazine and the Books & Such literary agency’s blog, Between the Lines.
Meagan lives in Oklahoma, where she works at a non-profit by day and writes by night. 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.
