INTERVIEW WITH MEGAN S. JOHNSTON, AUTHOR OF TRANSITION: A CHIMERA HUNTERS NOVEL

Megan, welcome to Dream Weaver Novels on Blogspot. We look forward to learning more about you and your novel Transition. 
Thank you Su for having me, it’s a great pleasure to be here on your Dream Weaver Blog today. 
ABOUT MEGAN

First, tell us a little about yourself and your book. 

Well, I’ll make it short, because there is a lot to tell.  I am a wife and mother of three daughters and one son, and a grandmother of seven wonderful kids. I spend a lot of time with my family and see some of my children and grandchildren on a daily bases. We have a family owned and operated business, and my daughter run’s the daily operation of the office and brings her 2 ½ year old daughter every day. From my husband to my son, to brothers, son-in-laws and daughters, we all work together as a family. We are a busy family to say the least. Then there is my writing, this is done in my spare time and every day. Whether it’s writing or marketing, it is an everyday process.

It took me 2 ½ years to write and publish my first novel Transition, the first book in The Chimera Hunters Series. It is a young adult, paranormal romance. I have loved every moment and am blessed with a wonderful family that let’s my creativity run amuck.
DREAMIN’ THE DREAM

If your book was made into a movie or TV series, what actors would make up your dream cast? 

This is a little harder, because all the Chimera men are over 6’ tall. But here is my pick based on how I see them:
Develon =   Victor Webster    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005543/ 

Shelby    =  Keira Knightley    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0461136/
Jen  =   Jessica Alba http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0004695/ 

Victor Webster - DevelonKeira Knightly - ShelbyJessica Alba - Jen

 

 

 

 

Gavin     =   Joe Manganiello  6’5 http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0542133/ 

Leandro =   Jason Momoa 6’4  (looks great with long hair)http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0597388/

Stephen  =  Chris Hemsworth 6’4  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1165110/

TIPS 4 YOU
Any advice you’d give to aspiring writers? 

This is my top advice, write… write… write… even if it’s a grocery list. This is a must do every day. And remember, never… ever… give up.

MEGAN’S FAVES
Who are 3 of your favorite traditionally published authors? And tell us about their books. 

Oh goodness, I have so many. But these are some of my top fave’s: 

  • Twilight Saga – by Stephenie Meyer (I have been likened to her many times)
  • Gena Showalter  (Love every one of her novels) AND
  • Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. All my daughters and myself read her Vampire Academy Novels. Loved them all!

ME TOO! & A MOVIE TO BOOT

I’m  so glad you mentioned Richelle Mead! I absolutely love her Vampire Academy books. I recently tried to re-read them, but the emotion was still too raw, even after over a year, that I couldn’t read them. She signed a copy for me at last year’s PNWA Conference and wrote back to me when I emailed her. She’s very sweet. AND the books are at this very moment being made into a movie. (Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters) They’re shooting over in England…even though the Academy is in Montana.
SHOUT OUT LOUD
Any self-pubbed authors you’d like to give a shout out? 
There are many self-published authors whose novels are great!  Here are some of my recent favorites: 

Shattered Souls (Souls #1) by Mary Lindsey http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9366996-shattered-souls
