About Megan Harpin
Born in 2003, I was raised in York by my parents, surrounded by nature and wildlife. From a young age, I spoke fluently, and wrote magical stories about fairies dancing in the woods. From the minute I could hold a book, I was entranced by the world of words and imagination, spending most nights reading. Entering into primary school, my love of English grew and I devoured any book that came my way, finishing all the books in the school’s library.
Writing has always been something that holds a special interest for me, with the many characters and voices with which you can craft an entire world from your own imagination, transporting both yourself and your reader to a different time and place. It’s something both basic and unique, telling your story simply through words, conjuring these images on the mind of the reader, connecting them with a different realm and time better than anything else. It’s just you and the words that you write.
Even when I am not writing, I have always had a creative outlook on life. I took up classical singing from a young age, completing ABRSM Grades from 1 to 7. I also enjoy art and textiles, crafting my own pieces as a way to express myself in a different forms.
That love of books quickly progressed into loving all forms of literature during secondary school. Whilst I studied a range of books, my passion has always been to entertain people through my writing, so becoming an author has forever been at the forefront of my mind; making a career out of writing just seems like a natural progression.
That desire developed into my debut novel, The Mark
