The author of what will become a fantastic series, Megan Murray, can still remember the first book she could read by herself, and the magic of connecting marks on a page with meaning. From then on, she found it hard to put books down and it wasn’t long before she was writing stories of her own…
In 2009, Megan won a writing competition and ended up in Australia, working on a farm. While there, she decided that she wanted to take her lifelong love of books and turn it into a career. After spending four years at the University of Glasgow, Megan graduated with a First Class Honours degree in English Language. Having also been able to study Archaeology and Scottish History along the way, it was at university that she began to form the idea for her first children’s book – combining her love of Scotland with her love of books and adventure. The Magic Bookcase series was born.
After graduating Megan began writing – and hasn’t stopped since. She self-published the first novel in the series, The Prehistoric Prologue, in Autumn 2017.
Megan lives in Gourock with her very patient parents who are always (outwardly) enthusiastic guinea-pig readers and sounding-boards for new ideas. In her spare time, Megan enjoys singing, playing piano and guitar and bagging Munros.
