Today on Unicorn Bell, I'm featuring my interview with acclaimed YA author Megan Miranda. I'm super excited because Megan happens to be one of my favorite YA authors! Some of her books include: FRACTURE (which I LOVED), VENGEANCE (another great one), HYSTERIA (in my TBR pile), and her latest release, SOULPRINT (currently reading).
I met Megan a few months ago at the SCBWI writer's conference in Charlotte, and when I realized she and I lived not too far from one another, I was ecstatic. We recently met and chatted over coffee and hot cocoa, and through sharing her stories and experiences, she inspired me to keep on this writing, querying, and publishing journey.
Everyone's journey is different. And I have to accept that. I truly believe (and hope) that if I don't lose sight of my dream, one day I can call myself a published author. Especially with wonderful people like Megan (And all of you!) in my cheering corner.
So, without further ado, enjoy the teaser interview and don't forget to stop by Unicorn Bell to read the rest!
Thank you! The idea for Soulprint came from a question I had years ago, when I was studying science in school. We had been learning about the human genome project—where scientists were mapping each section of our DNA to what it coded for—and I wondered: what if scientists found the soul? What would that look like? What would that mean? How could we use that….and, in the case of this story, how might that be used against us?
Tell us something nobody knows about you.
Oh man, that nobody knows? Okay. *I* am the one who ate all that missing Halloween candy, kids.
List five adjectives to describe yourself.
Type-A. Caffeinated (at the moment). Uncoordinated. Short. Not-a-morning-person.
If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?
Well, not to be totally creepy, but…. Pretend to be a ghost? Levitate objects? Move things around and freak people out? All in the name of book research, of course!

Aided by three teens with their own ulterior motives, Alina manages to escape. Although she’s not sure she can trust any of them, she soon finds herself drawn to Cameron, the most enigmatic and alluring of the trio. But when she uncovers clues from her past life, secrets begin to unravel and Alina must figure out whether she’s more than the soul she inherited, or if she’s fated to repeat history.
This stunning “new world” romance from acclaimed author Megan Miranda will leave readers wondering how far they would go to escape the past.
