Outlaw Boots #12: Megan Crewe

Megan Crewe's bootsI laid out a few New Year’s resolutions for you way back at the end of December, but one of them I *didn’t* mention is reading outside my genre.  I’m trying to ease my way into fantasy (though some of them are magic realism, to my English major’s brain), and I thought I’d start with Megan Crewe.

Megan is from Canada, which makes her an outlaw to begin with, way up there in all that cold, where regular people are too chicken to live.  : \  But she writes wonderfully dystopian fantasy, and it’s stuff that feels like it could come true, which is the best kind (some doesn’t, in my opinion).  I love books that makes me keep reading, even though I’m scared to death!

The Way We Fall released in January, and here’s a quick blurb from Goodreads:  It starts with an itch you just can’t shake. Then comes a fever and a tickle in your throat. A few days later, you’ll be blabbing your secrets and chatting with strangers like they’re old friends. Three more, and the paranoid hallucinations kick in.

And then you’re dead.THE WAY WE FALL book cover

Holy scamoly, yes indeedy!  And through the eyes of a teenager?  Double yes.

–Who’s your most outlaw character (in any book)–why?

Gav from THE WAY WE FALL–he doesn’t trust the authorities, so he takes care of the island his own way, which involves breaking some laws.

 

–Are you an outlaw too?  How do you know?

I suppose so. I can follow the rules when I need to, but breaking them is almost always more fun.

 

–What kind of shoes does your outlaw wear (you or your
character–maybe outlaw boots?)?

I love my lace-up brown leather boots. [right up there at the top, friends!]

 

–Pirate, ninja, nerd, other outlaw title for you/your character:

I’d say Gav is an anti-establishment rebel, with a heart of gold.  😉

 

–Best thing about being an outlaw:

Getting to decide for myself what a “successful” life entails.

 

–Favorite outlaw/badass food:

Cinnamon hearts–sharp and spicy and just a little sweet.

 

–Favorite outlaw/badass role model/why:

Peggy from Mad Men. She’s managed to rise in a man’s world, and lives life on her own terms, regardless of society’s expectations.

 

Check Megan out, friends–she’s at the top of my reading list!
