Interview with Author Megan Erickson and Giveaway

Megan worked as a journalist covering real-life dramas before she decided she liked writing her own endings better and switched to fiction.

She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids and two cats. When she's not tapping away on her laptop, she's probably listening to the characters in her head who won't stop talking.

First off, can you tell us a bit about you?
Sure! I’m a wife and a mom of two kids. I have always had my nose in a book and that’s one thing that has never changed. I was a journalist and when I was seven, I was in a commercial for a local TV show. My line was, “And puzzles!” Proud moment. Haha.

Did you always want to be a writer?
Yes, I did! I also wrote stories for fun and went to college for journalism. It took a while before I finally gained the confidence to attempt a whole novel.

What kind of writer are you? Panster or Plotter?

Where do your ideas come from?
Oh my, everywhere! All kinds of things like the news and stories from my friends and even other books.

A la Twitter style, can you describe your book (or series) in 140 characters or less.
The Gamers series is nerdy and fun and will make you want to get your nerd on.

What are some of your favorite kinds of stories to read?
I love enemies to lovers!

Do you have a favorite book and if so what is it?
I don’t have a favorite book. I think that’s crazy hard to nail down. I will say the first book I read over and over and over again was The Thorn Birds.

What are the scenes that are the hardest for you to write?
I hate writing the black moment in books. I want everyone to be happy! I hate when my characters are sad!

If you could have dinner with any three authors, who would you choose and why?
Chuck Palahniuk, Kristen Ashley, and Markus Zusak

Last question, are you working on anything right now?
Right now I’m working on DIRTY DEEDS, which is the third book in my Mechanics of Love series with Avon. And next up, I’ll be tackling the third book in my In Focus series with Berkley!

What do you think is nerdy about you?

Grant Osprey just had the hottest sex of his life. Sure, they were both in costume, and yes, it was anonymous, but he never expected her to bolt in the middle of the night without so much as a good bye, let alone exchanging numbers. Or names. All he’s left with are her panties and some seriously X-rated memories...until he meets his business partner's little sister.

Only Chloe Talley isn't the bold, sexy vixen he remembers. And she wants nothing to do with him.

Cosplay is Chloe’s only chance to leave her boring, socially awkward world behind. To forget that she’s failing at life and can’t be with anyone, let alone a single-father like Grant. But the raw hunger between them is undeniable. With him, she can be a misbehaving maid. A sexy call girl for hire. Each scene pushes Chloe beyond her strict boundaries, until Grant demands the one character she can't play.

Check out the Gamers series:

He peered through the peephole. Chloe was standing on the front porch, large sunglasses over her eyes—even though it was nighttime—and wearing a belted trench coat.

When he opened the door, he gazed down to her bare legs and sky-high black heels.

“Mr. Osprey?” she asked, her lips a bright cherry red.

He leaned on the door and raised an eyebrow. “Yes.”

Her pink tongue slipped out, wetting her bottom lip.

“My handler said you have hired my services for the night. I only accept cash.”

He nearly swallowed his tongue. So she wanted to play some Pretty Woman role, huh? He went from kinda hard to full mast.

“We agreed on two grand and I get you until two in the morning.” He deliberately leered. “All of you. Every inch of you. However I want you. Suit you, Princess?”

The lapels of her trench coat quivered. “Suits me.”

“Great.” He stepped back and gestured inside. “Come in, please.”

She brushed past him and he smelled strawberries. He shut and locked the door, then turned around to face Chloe.

She’d taken her sunglasses off and her hands were on her untied belt. In one practiced move, she flung open the edges of the coat and rolled her shoulders so the khaki material fluttered to the ground at her feet.

Grant had to shoot out a hand to brace himself on the wall because he suddenly had vertigo.The physical parts of Chloe he loved the most were encased in lavender lace—a bra that didn’t cover much, because he could see her hardened nipples poking through.

Her thong didn’t cover much except for a small triangle scrap, hiding her pussy—which he knew she shaved bare—from his view.

Jesus, all that skin, that delicious lace, all for him.

She watched him with those green eyes, a sexy smirk to her mouth. She slowly twisted, so that her ankles were crossed, and showed him her back, she looked at him through her lashes over her shoulder. Only a string ran along the top of her ass and between her crease.

He was hard in his jeans, ridiculously so, and he hadn’t even touched her yet. Hadn’t yet taken that mouth or plunged his fingers in that tight heat. He was going to do all of that and then some.

He stepped toward her. “Hands on the wall. Ass out.”

  1. I think my love for books and reading is what makes me nerdy. I'm sure there are several other things that my kids think make me nerdy, but I couldn't possibly imagine what. lol

  2. Aside from my love/addiction to books, I am a history nerd (I went to college in Lancaster County, PA, just so I can be close to Gettysburg!). I also love shows that a seemingly select few really admit to loving--Arrow, The Flash, and Supernatural. I am also a bit of local sports fanatic--love my Phillies, Flyers, and Eagles.

  3. Thank you so much for hosting PLAYING FOR HER HEART!
