More About the Author

Some may call me a writer, an author perhaps. Yet my 80,000-word memoir exists first and foremost because I am a dreamer. And I'm dreaming bigger than ever these days.


My passion is helping young people achieve their dreams, in particular finding the perfect college to nurture those dreams. I'm even going back to graduate school to pursue that passion in a full-time career, and that's one of the purposes of publishing And Then it Rained: Lessons for Life.


Yet through the journey of publishing this book, I have discovered (or re-discovered, perhaps) a passion for writing. I have been incredibly fortunate as to have found a home with Evolved Publishing and am hard at work on planning a sequel, Sunny Skies, which I expect to publish sometime late 2014.


When I'm not writing, you'll find me enjoying time with my friends, family, and 2-year old Golden Retriever, Mia. I love reading (of course) and running, and any time spent on the ocean. I took advantage of my proximity to the coast while getting my undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Business Administration at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. Though I've now moved back to the landlocked Midwest, I continue to travel there as much as I can and hope to one day own a house on the beach. Living by the sea and writing all day -- sounds wonderful, doesn't it?


Yep, as I said, I'm good at dreaming.

And Then It Rained: Lessons for Life is an interesting and inspiring read. I found it a reminder to always look forward, stay positive, understand you can't fix everything and everyone, and sometimes letting go is a positive thing. I think this would be a great book for a young teenager, but even us oldsters can be reminded what life is all about and how to live it to its fullest! Thanks, Megan, for sharing your life's experiences, and I look forward to the continuing saga!

This book was a pleasant surprise from a young, first-time writer. I read it on my Kindle in only a few days and it kept me interested throughout. I'm long past my college days, but I could relate to Megan's poignant story, from her search to find the right mentor, to dealing with her dad's alcoholism and her parents' divorce, ending in her courageous decision to strike out on her own and pursue her dreams.

All of the life lessons here are revealed in a simple and straightforward manner, without heavy handed moralizing. We get these challenges and revelations through Megan's eyes and it's an honest account of her journey and growth. I look forward to reading more from the author.

Megan Morisson's first book is inspirational as the author works through her life's challenges and triumphs. The author's writing style is very easy to read and leaves you cheering for her to believe in herself and learn valuable life lessons. I highly recommend for readers of all ages. A great holiday gift for teens and older as they strive to learn how they can be the best they can be. An added bonus is all proceeds will be donated to help others achieve their dreams.

It's been a long time since I read a book that drew on childhood memories or even featured a young adult. Author Megan Morrison does a great job of incorporating little details that make the memories in the book vivid, realistic, and appropriately biased toward the narrator while keeping the story going at a comfortable, page turning pace. As I read the book, I liked the narrator and rooted for her, and I was also curious about how the other characters would have lived the same events, what they might have thought and felt about the same scenes - or, as Ms. Morrison explores, would they even remember those moments? I really liked how the author got to the heart of how we process and build on the events in our lives through our emotions and perceptions over time. As an adult, that is what I appreciate about the book. For younger readers, I think this book would make an easily enjoyable read with relatable characters and plenty of encouragement that is sure to be a comfort during the drama of teenage life. In particular, I like the author's mixture of funny and more poignant anecdotes and how the narrator describes the personalities around her. And Then It Rained will keep a teenage reader's attention and provide some helpful food for thought when it comes to meeting challenges, appreciating the environment around you, and rising to the occasion under many circumstances - during and after high school. Hats off to a book that successfully spans both K-12 and undergrad in plot (so many books focus on one or the other!) and teen through adult in audience. Great read, and highly recommended.

A young Megan is inspired by the life and friendship of her idol, Maya. In an attempt to share with Maya what that relationship has meant to her, she composes a long letter that chronicles her feelings and experiences. The letter, rather than helping to heal Maya, pushes her away. This memoir is about one girl's journey to find the hero in herself when the hero she idolizes turns on her. It's about how one girl survives her dad's alcoholism and her parents' divorce; how she conquers her homesickness and thrives in college; how she comes to know herself.

I'm not a big fan of memoirs, but this book is so well-written it's like reading fiction. Megan and I had very different paths in life, so her choices and experiences were not familiar roads for me, making her journey all the more interesting to read. This book, without being preachy, is inspiring, motivational and useful for anyone. While she and I have lived such different lives, her engaging prose and openness of heart made it easy to relate to the core human struggles of fear, loneliness and loss of hope... and to rejoice with her as those were replaced by bravery, camaraderie and excitement about life.

I highly recommend this book.

In this memoir we watch the metamorphosis Megan goes through. As a young girl, trying to make sense of her own life, her own place in the world, while trying to understand the fractures taking place within the walls of her own home. She turns to Maya, a friend of the family and a much older girl who seems to have it all. Megan tries to emulate Maya, and sets her on a pedestal--a dangerous place to put anyone.

Years later when Maya starts to battle some of her own issues and begins to pull away, Megan, in her youthful mind, thinks she knows how to fix her friend. She decides to write her a letter. This simple act backfires and pushes Maya even further away and forces Megan to look at the world around her differently.

Based on her own life, Megan shows us that we are stronger than we think. Despite the turmoil of her father's alcoholism, his various bouts with treatment, her parent's divorce, and losing the one person in her life that she truly admired, this amazing girl goes on to accomplish some incredible feats. It's her journey to find the strength within herself and become the person, the example to others, that she really wished Maya had been for her.
