Hey there, reading friends!  My name is Megan.

I’m a Laboratory Technologist from the shining city of Meade in the fair land of Kansas.

These are a few of my favorite things:

  1. Cats (I have two – Phoenix and Gandalf)
  2. Books (I have too many and yet not enough)
  3. Tea (Mint is the best, Chamomile and Caramel close second, and everything else is just fabulous)
  4. Crocheting (I do love a good yarn)
  5. Music (God’s gift to mankind – but mostly me)
  6. Writing (Why else am I here?)

I love C.S. Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien, K.B. Hoyle and Andrew Peterson, and Elisabeth Elliot and Jane Austen.  A Tale of Two Cities and Les Miserablés changed my existence for all eternity, and The Zion Covenant may be one of the greatest novel series ever written.  The Hunger Games is regular fare, and I enjoy an occasional non-fiction adventure, such as The Library Book, when I’m not on my steady kick of World War II novels.

My childhood was defined by nights listening to Adventures in Odyssey and Lamplighter Theater.  When I wasn’t listening to the radio, I was on the floor coloring while my mom read aloud Little House on the Prairie and The Chronicles of Narnia.  I didn’t know what Star Wars was until I was 11, but The Lord of the Rings quickly took over when I turned 13.

At 14, I began to take in every Janette Oke book I could find.  Around the same time, I quickly lost all trust in the YA section of the library and traded in for classics such as Ben Hur, Pride and Prejudice, Macbeth, and One Thousand and One Arabian Nights.  Beowulf was the bane of my existence and The Canterbury Tales scarred me for life.

Now, at 21, I spend most of my time in a cold, bustling hospital with as many classic novels as I can possibly fit into one backpack.  I recently read The Firm and Jane Eyre and questioned how I could say I was a voracious reader before now.  I still listen to Lamplighter Theater in the evenings while I wash dishes and run yet another load of laundry that looks way to big for a single person to have created in one week.  Besides that, I read anytime I can shirk other responsibilities and also take long naps with my kitties.

Origins

I started this blog in May of 2020 when I didn’t have time or energy enough to do anything particularly fun or special.  I returned in December with a greater determination to stick to my guns . . . er, pen? keyboard?

Anywho, with my love of reading and writing, they combined perfectly into this blog.  I review books and movies for the most part, but there’s lots of other things going on as well.

In August of 2020, I began taking a Creative Writing class through Seward County Community College (I graduated from SCCC with my degree in May 2020.)  During that class I rededicated myself to my passion for writing and that has led me here.

I love most of all to write about World War II, but the rest of history is pretty cool too.

Until the day I publish the greatest novel ever written on WWII, I will be here: a Lab Tech by day and a humble blogger by evening (because 8:30 is a pretty sweet bed-time ya’ll.)
