Author Spotlight & Giveaway: Megan Ryder!

*Giveaway at the end of the post* U.S. only~Ends 6/30/17
 Today’s featured author is the awesome Megan Ryder! Learn some fun facts about Megan in this short Q&A. Leave a comment on the blog for a chance to win her latest release, Something Borrowed!

1. What genres do you write?

Contemporary Romance

2. Coffee or tea lover?

Tea all the way. I just discovered Earl Gray with Bergamot by Stash and I’m addicted. But my first love is Chai tea.

3. Name one thing on your bucket list.

Go to Scotland and visit the highlands.

4. Do you have pets?


We just adopted a cocker spaniel named Bentley (or Mr. Bentley). He’s black and white, now about 10 months old. He’s a rescue and we’re still working on the potty training but he is a love and a lot of energy. All boy, playful, nippy and wild.

5. When I wake up every morning I… wish I could go back to bed for hours. 😊  Seriously. I am not a morning person. Bentley adores mornings – the earlier the better – and when you can’t trust his potty issues, that means I’m up too. Takes me a long time to get going. So I am a zombie for a few hours in the morning, daydreaming of my bed.

​6. Weirdest​ or unique thing you own.

Besides my extensive yarn collection? A life sized cardboard cutout of Aragorn from the Lord of the Rings movies. I found him in a Walden Books (Yes, it really was that long ago) and I begged the manager to let me have it when they were done with the display. Quite inspirational.

​7. Do you have ​any hobbies or particular skills?

I love to knit and have spent many years on that hobby. My favorite has always been lace but, with the writing, my knitting, especially lace, has taken a back seat. Lace knitting requires a lot of concentration and devoted time and I just can’t do both many days. But I still knit sweaters, shawls, socks and other projects. It helps me relax and plot my stories.

8. What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories? 

I hope my readers find a little escape in my books, a little pleasure and fun in the reading and maybe some happiness in the romance between the characters. I look for regular characters, regular life circumstances and then challenge my characters to find their happiness, challenge their view on the world.

Something Borrowed

Brigid Anderson is a second year lawyer on a fast track to making partner. With the weight of her siblings’ success on her shoulders, Brigid feels like she needs to prove something–to herself and to her parents. Her life is running smoothly and all according to plan…until she meets Grady.

Available on Amazon

Grady Coughlin understands focus and ambition, having taken over his father’s contracting business and building it into a successful historic preservation business on his own. After a blind date with Brigid that ends in explosive passion, they embark on a friends with benefits relationship. But as Grady establishes himself in the business world, he decides he wants more and wants it with Brigid.

On the eve of her best friend’s wedding, with her promotion to partner dangling within reach, Brigid believes Grady isn’t the best partner to suit her career ambition. But Grady and her heart don’t agree and she must decide if she should stick to the safety of the plan or find the courage to pursue what she really wants.

    1. I try to knit every night. It’s my downtime after writing, to help me relax, meditate and clear my brain before sleeping. Lately, I have not had that much time and i get antsy. 🙂

  1. I hope you make it to Scotland some day. I have wished to go for a long time and we are going in September. Would you try writing a book set in Scotland? That could be fun.
