Author Interview with Megan Miranda

0 COMMENTS • This post is filed under: Author Interviews, Teen, YA

Today I’m pleased to welcome Megan Miranda to the blog. Megan is the author of the 2012 YA debut, Fracture. Thanks for stopping by to answer a few questions, Miranda!

Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she’s far from normal.

Author Info:


Megan is a scientist – turned – teacher – turned – stay-at-home-mom – turned – writer. She is not nearly as indecisive as she sounds. She lives near Charlotte, North Carolina, where she volunteers as an MIT Educational Counselor, does the mom thing by day, and writes by night.

1. Which one of your characters would you most want to kiss?

Full disclosure: I’m 30. (Wait, illegal?! Omigod, they’re going to send me away for the rest of my natural life. I have a zillion fictional underage crushes! Crap!!!) I think it would probably be illegal, and also creepy, if I kissed any of them. But if I could kiss them on the forehead in a “there, there, it’ll be okay,” motherly way, I’d pick Decker.
2. Which character do you most want to slap?
Harder question than you might think! I feel like most of the characters are trying to deal with their own things, and maybe they don’t go about it the best way, but they’re still figuring it all out. Slapping them isn’t really going to change anything—or help anything. There is this one character, but I’m super-attached to all of them. For better or worse. I can’t slap them.
3. What scene in the book would you like to reenact?
You mean to see on a movie screen? Probably the opening sequence, when she falls through the ice. (But if you mean which scene would I want to be in, definitely not that! Something inside. I’m not a fan of the cold)
4. What character’s brain you’d most like to pick?
It’s a 50/50 toss up between Troy and Delaney’s mom—for vastly different reasons.
5. Which scene do you think will surprise readers the most?  
I’m trying to answer this with no spoilers… I think readers will be surprised by some things near the end. 
This, that, or the other:

1. Pride & Prejudice (the original), Pride, Prejudice and Zombies or Bridget Jones’ Diary?  

Bridget Jones’ Diary.

2. Dark chocolate, milk chocolate or (gulp), white chocolate?

Milk chocolate

3. Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall?  


5. Library, bookstore, or ereader?  

Ack! I can only pick one? Bookstore. But I love them all for very different reasons.

6. Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?  


7. London, Paris or Rome?  

I’ve only been to London, and I loved it. But I’ve always, always wanted to visit Rome.

8. PC or Mac?


9. Wine, beer or hard liquor?  


10. Do you prefer to read on the couch, in bed or in a chair? 


Go on, tell the world!
