Day Eighteen - All About Megan Bostic ( Never Eighteen)

Debutante Profile

Name - Megan Bostic
Debut - Never Eighteen
Genre - Contemporary
Website - HERE
Youtube Channel - HERE
Facebook - HERE
Twitter - HERE

Megan (that’s with a long “e”) Bostic is just trying to find her place in the universe.  Despite the rain and gray making her extremely angsty (she’s truly solar powered), she’s lived in the Pacific Northwest her whole life, and still does, with her two crazy beautiful girls.

When not writing, Megan can be found in her car (chauffeuring, waiting, cussing), at her girls soccer games (in the sun, the rain, the snow, she carries the title Ultimate Soccer Mom), in her rec room watching Netflix (this is for the collapsing portion of the day), at the ocean (where I hide from the world, used only as needed), or on the Narrows Bridge (to walk, not to jump)

Megan loves the color black, monkeys, is an avid vlogger and blogger, an all-around great girl, and a notorious Facebook addict. She’s a proud member of The Class of 2K12 and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. You can also find her on Twitter, Goodreads, and anywhere else cool authors hang out.

She Travelled to the Ball in Style -  Hotness Overload!

Dream Debutante Dress - Look who Megan bought as a date!?! 

Notes from a YA Debutante

Fun and interesting facts about author, Megan Bostic! (why are you laughing?)

In no apparent order.

11. (because I go up to 11). I remember the first poem I ever wrote.  I believe I was four.
                  Let’s go play on a sunny day
                  The sun is blazing hot
                  Let’s go play on a snowy day
                  The sun was just forgot
I said I was four!

10. In first grade I one the blue ribbon (that’s first prize) in the swing pumping contest.  I’m still a good swinger. What?

9. I was a Blue Bird in school, yet sadly never made it to Girl Scout status.

8. I can play piano, guitar, and drums, none of them very well. (but I can sing)

7. My first “real” boyfriend’s name was Brody (totally going to use that in a book).  I was in fifth grade and was so scared that I never talked to him, touched him, or looked at him during our entire relationship.  He broke up with me.  I have no idea why.

6. The first boy I kissed was named John.  I was 15.  John is also my dad and brothers name.  I did not realize that coincidence until this very second and now am kind of creeped out.

5. When I was a senior in high school I was in our school’s musical production of Lil’ Abner.  I played wife #1 and killed it!

4. Jobs I’ve held: bag girl at a grocery store (before plastic), pizza maker in a grocery store deli, jewelry store clerk, record/video store clerk, seller of vehicle license tabs, photo retoucher, data entry for the county clerk, shoe sales (worst job ever), file clerk, toy sales, body product sales, candle maker, day care provider, wine maker/cashier (I was also manager of the wine shop for about two seconds), video book trailer creator (still do this if anyone needs a trailer, wink wink). *takes deep breath*  Aside from adding writer to the list, I also work as the marketing coordinator in a law firm (okay, my dad’s law firm, so what?).

3. I graced the cover of the Tacoma New Tribune’s entertainment section in my early twenties, and no, it’s not because I am a great entertainer.  It was because I sold tickets for people to go see great entertainers.

2. I have seen three dead seals in my lifetime.

1. From conception to sale, Never Eighteen took one year and four months.  When the book comes out, the publication process itself will have taken longer.


Bookie's Note: AND that is Megan Bostic! She's a special case as you can see she somehow convinced Eminem to be her date for the event and not JUST that make she travelled in style. Did you see who was carrying her Palaquin? It was hotness overload! Megan, I don't think I knew what a poem was when I was four! Anyhow, come back tomorrow for a fantastic character profile ;) 

Badass Bookie xx

    The choice of that dress really makes us understand more about her personality and stile, even if I would not wear it.

  23. Lol, totally loving your ride to the ball!! I would also love to go with Eminem to the ball, my life

  24. Love authors that have many other talents! Megan is one step above me - I can't play any instruments let alone sing :)

    I too was involved in Girl Scouts - I made it to a Cadet but once I hit highschool it wasn't 'cool' anymore so I quite... now I wish I hadn't

  25. Wow, those are to many jobs, but it's true about the shoe sales, they can be the worse, I hate when people aka my mom and friends go to a shoe store just to try shoes and sometimes they don't even buy them, they make the sales lady work much!

  26. Haha. Megan is just HILARIOUS! Love her fun facts on No. 6 and & 7 ;)
