An Author of the 'Hart'

Please welcome, Megan Hart, multi-published author and a good friend of mine.  Her writing is as entertaining as her interview. Enjoy.

After reading so many of your books I must start this visit with a question. Is it true your degree is not in journalism or any other major related to writing but in abnormal psychology?

Ha! You could imagine that’s true...if you want. With a minor in Unreasonable Phenomenon.

How many balls or writing projects can you juggle at a time?

I can’t juggle at all. I tried, oh how I’ve tried. I just can’t. I can, however, multitask. I prefer to work on one project at a time, but I’m usually flipping back and forth pretty frequently.

How about a blurb for Precious and Fragile Things.

He’s not about to let her leave.
And she cannot stay.
Gilly Soloman has been reduced to a mothering machine, taking care of everyone and everything
except herself. But the machine has broken down. Burnt out by the endless days of crying children and menial tasks, and exhausted from always putting herself last, Gilly doesn’t immediately consider the consequences when she’s carjacked. With a knife to her throat, her first thought is that she’ll finally get some rest. Someone can save her for a change.
But salvation isn’t so forthcoming. Stranded in a remote, snowbound cabin with this stranger, hours turn to days, days into weeks. As time forges a fragile bond between them, she learns her captor is not the lunatic she first believed, but a human being whose wasted life has been shaped by secrets and tragedy. Yet even as their connection begins to foster trust, Gilly knows she must never forget he’s still a man teetering on the edge. One who just might take her with him.

Will we see more books in this genre from you? Please tell us you won’t be giving up romance.

I write more non-romance than romance -- I don’t consider my Spice books romances (most of them) but erotic fiction. So no, I won’t be giving up romance, but I’ll just keep writing lots of stuff that isn’t quite romance. I do have another book to write for MIRA that will be out in 2012, so yes, I’ll be writing at least one more “definitely not a romance, not erotic” book.

When they make Precious and Fragile into a blockbuster movie, who will play the lead characters?

Gilly -- Jennifer Connelly
Todd -- Keanu Reeves  (I guessed that one)

Lots of lucky people received eReaders as Christmas gifts. Can you please give us a number of links so they can buy some of your books right now and perhaps pre-order Precious and Fragile Things?

Sure. Readers interested in looking at some of my older, previously published but re-published works can find them at:

As well as and, the Apple iBookstore, Kobo, Diesel, and...I’m sure a bunch of other places I don’t even know about. My current books are also available from all those places! Basically wherever ebooks are sold. ;)

Megan's books stay with you when you're done reading them so prepare yourself.  You always long for more and the best way to get it is to buy another of her books.  Precious and Fragile Things will be on my shelf the first day it is out. 
Have you read any Hart books? Which is your favorite?


  1. Thank you for letting us all know about this wonderful writer. I'm off to follow the links now.

  2. You won't be disappointed, Jarmara. But be careful picking up one of Megan's books because you won't be able to put it down until you finish.

  3. This sounds like a very interesting book. I like that things build slowly between the characters. I imagine the tension ratchets up as well.

  4. The blurb intrigues me. Thanks for posting about this author and her work!

  5. Sounds like a terrific book - thanks for the tip! :)

  6. Tanks for having me here today, Sue. ;)

    It's been a long time since that first convo in the elevator when you suggested I try out CPRW!


  7. It does seem a long time ago since the elevator at PSU. I learned so much at that conference but meeting you was the best part. :)

  8. Hey, Megan! Is this the story you researched in your car with the stopwatch and the window shoving? Can't wait to check it out.

    Great interview, guys!

  9. I love Megan Hart books. My favorites are Tempted and Naked. I'm reading Broken right now.

  10. This is the one, Ava!

    I don't know if I can pick a Hart favorite, but I had the honor of reading this book at a time when it really resonated with me, and it's a book that really burrows inside you.
