Megan has never had what most would call a normal life.
Her childhood and teen years were spent on the run with her family, hiding from a horror so great it defines their world. Friends and homes are traded at a moment’s notice to escape from their worst nightmares.
Years pass, and her mother settles down with her new step-father, a kind man who does his best to protect them. Life lulls into a safe pace, and Megan finally feels as though she has control of her future for the first time in her life. But that peace is shattered with the arrival of a new family member, one that bears a striking resemblance to a savior of her past…
Confused by her deep emotional connection to him, things unravel fast. She learns that the people she lives with, even her own family, are not what they seem. Her only friend who helped her piece her life back together changes overnight, and she is left dealing with the fallout on her own…
As events unfold, Megan finds herself face to face with the horror that has haunted her since childhood. But will she be able to escape from her twisted bloodline?
And now for the interview! Welcome Megan, the heroine of Twisted Bloodlines!
Welcome to Notes On A Page, Megan. Come on in, take a pew. Can I get you a drink? What’s your tipple of choice?
Hi, thanks for having me. Coffee would be great if you have some, or maybe a red bull. It’s always better to stay alert, well in my situation anyway.
I bet! Coffee it is, I always have some handy for late-night writing anyway. Now, down to the nitty-gritty. We know from your story that you have a…dysfunctional family. What happened to it?
Dysfunctional is one word for it. I’m not really clued in on all the details, apparently it will all be revealed, but they are slowly unfolding. Let’s just say…my mother’s choice in men is less than desirable.
You seem really close to your brother and your mum. It must have been a shock when Peter turned up. What was it like adjusting to having a step-father?
I didn’t exactly take it too well at first, I mean I wasn’t having the best of days. It didn’t help that he seemed to know a whole lot more about me than I did. He also has this frustrating habit of remaining silent when questioned even though at the time I thought I was losing my mind. He’s pretty cool now though, I think Jase had more of a problem with no longer being the man of the house.
Must have been quite a shock to adjust to. Now, we know there’s a certain character who you have very close feelings for when he arrives on his motorbike. Without giving away too much for our readers, did you realise your attraction to him straight away?
Let’s face it, who wouldn’t be attracted to him? But yes, I did feel a very strong attraction to him, even though I had just met him. It was extremely unnerving at the time.
But it’s not all nice stuff, right? I mean, we know there’s another person on the horizon—the ‘someone’ your family has run from all these years. How do you deal with that?
Yes, him. There really isn’t a way to deal with it. I’m basically a prisoner in my own home and have to put total faith, and well, my life, in the hands of my family to keep me safe. I take things a day at a time and hold onto the hope that one day this will all be over and he will finally be gone from our lives.
Wow…I sure hope that happens for you one day soon. I don’t know how I;d cope with that hanging over my head all the time. But we also get to find out that you’re not entirely human, right, Megan? How did you cope with that, with finding out you were something else entirely?
That was most definitely a shock to the system but although I was scared at first of what I was to become, it was also a huge relief to know that I wasn’t going crazy and that my family were not a threat to me since I was in fact exactly the same as they were.
Again, without giving away too much to our readers, can you see yourself being a mother in the future?
To be honest I hadn’t really thought about motherhood, I’d never even had a boyfriend before. The only male figure in my life up till now was Jase and considering our sheltered life I didn’t think of it as a possibility. I’m not sure bringing a child into this situation would be a very good idea, I have no idea what the future will bring but my main priority at the moment is survival.
So, what’s the next move for you and your family?
We hope to find someplace secure to live. I know there has been talk of retaliation but I’m not sure that is such a good idea although on the other hand if it ended all of this uncertainty and fear that we have had to live with, then it’s one option to explore.
Well, thank you for taking the time to talk to us today, Megan–we know it’s not easy for you to drop in anywhere! Make sure to pick up Twisted Bloodlines to find out more about the courageous Megan.
More About The Author
I was born and raised in London, which is where I still live now with my husband and children. As a child I always had my nose stuck in a book. I started out reading mysteries such as Nancy Drew and then soon moving onto Agatha Christie. I then found a love of the horror genre, Richard Laymon being my favourite author among a few others. When a friend introduced me to the paranormal romance/fantasy genre I soon became hooked, building myself a very impressive to read pile and a long list of favourite authors. I would say both of these genres have influenced in the way I write and combining them is where I came up with the idea for my book.
