Author Interview: Megan Curd

Hey everyone! Today joining us at the table is the talented Megan Curd. Megan is an exciting new author of fantasy books. She lives in Wisconsin with her husband, Matt, and their son Carter (aka Peanut). Bridger is her first book, soon to be followed by its sequel, Traitor. In early 2012 she will release Forbidden, the first book in a new series, The Guardian Chronicles.

What are three must-have seasonings in your kitchen?

I have to have red crushed pepper, lemon juice, and salt. I like my food hot, extra lemon juice on my seafood, and I'll end up giving myself a heart attack with the amount of salt I use on my food!

What is your A+, number 1 writing snack?

Texas Chili and a Turtle Mocha from Acoustic Cafe in Eau Claire, WI! Love that place.

What inspired your latest book, THE GUARDIAN CHRONICLES: FORBIDDEN, and what ingredients do you hope make it a tasty treat for readers?

THE GUARDIAN CHRONICLES Actually started from a dream I had. Cliché, I know, but that's the truth. I dreamt about this guy that was trying to fix his wrongs, but couldn't. I wondered what that'd be like, so I wanted to see what would come of that. Ingredient wise, readers will get a fresh take on a YA book and enjoy the twist on what the afterlife might hold. Plus there are cute boys. What more do you need? :)

Tell us about your edible specialty, and rate your skill in the kitchen: novice, not bad, or nominate me for a Michelin star.

I honestly stink at cooking. I'm lucky I married a man who loves to cook. :) I can make a pretty good chicken alfredo pizza, but that's the extent of my prowess in the kitchen.

If you could invite a character to dinner who would it be and what would you serve?

I would invite Albus Dumbledore, and I'd probably ask him to bring a house elf and have the little guy whip up some of the awesome food they have at Hogwarts! Is that cheating? :)

One final question, if you were marooned on an island, and Pots 'N Pens granted your wish for only one book and one food, what would you choose?

I would choose Angels & Demons by Dan Brown for the book, and my Mamaw's potato casserole for the food. I could live for quite a while on those!

Thank you Megan! Come visit us again when THE GUARDIAN CHRONICLES comes out. Oh, and have fun with your new baby!
