Biography

Megan Morrison

My name is Megan Morrison, and I’m an author. I’m also a mom and a middle-school teacher. I spend my time having adventures with my husband and little boy, teaching drama and language arts to 7th and 8th graders, and writing fairy tales set in the world of Tyme.
 
When I’m not at work on something or other, my favorite thing in the whole wide world to do is to get lost in stories. I love to read books. I also love television, movies, and video games – anything that has a great story with compelling characters. When a story is really alive, I just want to live there, and I’ve been known to get pretty obsessed. My most public obsession (the one that inspired me to co-found a web site and write thousands of pages of fan fiction) is with Harry Potter, but I’m also a huge, dress-up-in-costumes-and-scream-a-lot level fan of Jane Austen, Star Wars, Firefly, and BioWare’s role-playing games.
 
Ten true things about me: I’m the oldest of three children; I drink a shocking amount of coffee; I once met J.K. Rowling at a party, and she kissed my cheek; I’ve been deep-sea fishing in Alaska; I was the captain of my high school’s varsity volleyball team; I was once on an episode of the game show Teen Pictionary; I’ve toured with a professional children’s theatre company and performed Off-Broadway; I have eaten bear; I used to be a competitive Irish dancer; and I took karate for a few years, mostly so that I could feel more like a Jedi.
 
Grounded: The Adventures of Rapunzel is my debut novel and the first book in the Tyme series. Tyme is a fantasy world that I co-created with my dear friend, Ruth Virkus, whom I met when I was publicly obsessing about Harry Potter. Ruth and I have been planning the Tyme series together since 2003, and we’re so excited to be sharing it with readers at last.

Ella Coach has one wish: revolution. Her mother died working in a sweatshop, and Ella wants every laborer in the Blue Kingdom to receive fairer treatment. But to make that happen, she'll need some high-level support...

by Megan Morrison - Adventure, Fairy Tale, Fantasy, Fiction

In all of Tyme, from the Redlands to the Grey, no one is as lucky as Rapunzel. She lives in a magic tower that obeys her every wish; she reads wonderful books starring herself as the heroine; her hair is the longest, most glorious thing in the world. And she knows this because Witch tells her so --- her beloved Witch, who protects her from evil princes, the dangerous ground under the tower, even unhappy thoughts. Rapunzel can't imagine any other life. Then a thief named Jack climbs into her room to steal one of her enchanted roses. He's the first person Rapunzel's ever met who isn't completely charmed by her (well, the first person she's met at all, really), and he is infuriating ---  especially when he hints that Witch isn't telling her the whole truth. Driven by anger at Jack and her own nameless fears, Rapunzel descends to the ground for the first time, and finds a world filled with more peril than Witch promised…and more beauty, wonder, and adventure than she could have dreamed.
