About Your Host

Megan Burkhart is a graduate of Taylor University’s professional writing program and is a multiple award-winning writer of both fiction and non-fiction. She has a sweet spot for YA fantasy and children’s picture books, especially those with a strong narrative voice. When she’s not writing or reading, she enjoys travel with her family, but she will always be smitten with the mitten state of Michigan, which she calls home. Beyond writing, she loves epic instrumental playlists on Spotify, Paris themed decor, and long walks in the woods wearing her red cloak. You can find out more about Megan at her website
