DEAR READER,

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my site! 

Meet Maegan.

I am a fiction writer from Southwest Michigan in the process of publishing my latest novel.

What kind of book is it?

It’s an Upper Middle Grade contemporary novel. Target readers will range in age from 10-14, and the primary audience will most likely be girls. 

What’s with the countdown calendar widget? (Depending on the gadget you’re viewing this from, the widget is either directly to the left or at the bottom of the page.)

Ah, yes. February 21, 2019…

Believe it or not, I’ve got two things due on that date: 

  1. My final version of my work-in-progress, polished and ready to submit to Literary Agents.
  2. A baby!

That’s right, my husband and I are expecting our first child…

Before my belly started to expand, I worked as a carpenter with my husband, Sean.

Currently, I’m about 28 weeks along (a bit farther than shown in this picture), which means I’m stuck at home doing office work for the next 12+ weeks.  

Working in the field is great, but with a baby in my tummy, we’re not taking any risks. So while we’re patiently waiting for The Big Day to arrive, I’m taking advantage of any extra time to get cranking on this book. 

Will I be able to read your entire book online?

Unfortunately, no. Posting the book online may hurt my chances of finding and publishing through a literary agent, so for the time being, I am only sharing my latest draft of Chapter 1. 

My hope though, is that you will join with me through the editing process, and if I’m lucky, stick around to find out if I land an agent and eventually get published.  

Want to know more about my Work-in-Progress (WIP)?

Have a question you’re dying to ask?

Submit a question here. I’ll do my best to post the answers online.

Welp, I better get back to the editing…

Thanks for stopping by, and hope to see you again soon!

Yours Truly,

Maegan Heil
