I love spotlighting debuting Debs books in the midst of posts of writers I've always admired. Today, I get to spotlight Megan Frazer's debut, SECRETS OF TRUTH AND BEAUTY. I was lucky to get my hands on the arc of this one and I'm so excited to share her interview today.
First, a little about SECRETS: When Dara Cohen was little, she was crowned Little Miss Maine. That was then. Now Dara's seventeen and she's not so little anymore. That's just one of her many problems. Another is that her control-freak mom won't get off her case about anything. Yet the one that hurts the most is the family secret: Dara has an older sister her parents tried to erase from their lives.
As for Megan, she studied English literature and creative writing at Columbia University. She lives with her husband and baby in Maine, where she is a high school librarian. She loves cheese and cooking, and both of these make their way into Secrets of Truth & Beauty. She was not, however, ever in a beauty pageant.
And here are Megan's answers to the Thorough Three:
NM: What is the age of your protagonist/s?
NM: What is the single, most important bit of advice you'd give to the You that was the same age as your protagonist/s?
MF: Ease up.
NM: Complete the following sentences:
Everyone should definitely, for sure _____________.
You should NEVER, EVER ___________. But if you absolutely must, make sure to ____________.
MF: Everyone should definitely, for sure leave home, at least for a little while.
You should NEVER, EVER do anything just to make other people happy. But if you absolutely must, make sure to try to find your own little joy in it.
