Hi, my name is Michaela Kathleen. I'm a copy editor at The Bismarck Tribune, living in North Dakota with my fat cat, Hairy Baby. I graduated last year from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln with a sensible degree in journalism, but writing books has always been my dream.
Harry Potter was the first book I read on my own. I wasn't a strong reader as a kid and Harry Potter turned that around and made me fall in love with reading. The Fault in Our Stars was the book that got me into reading Young Adult, which has become the genre I prefer to write.
"What on Earth have you packed in here? Bricks?" Asked Mo as he carried Meggie's book box out of the house.
"You're the one who says books have to be heavy, because a whole world's inside them," said Meggie.
