Toronto Speculative Fiction Writers Group


Megan Crewe - website - blog

I enjoy writing pretty much everything under that big speculative fiction umbrella: urban fantasy, high fantasy, paranormal, science fiction, horror--as long as it pushes the boundaries of reality at least a little, I'm there. In recent years my focus has become writing novels for young adults. My debut, the YA paranormal Give Up the Ghost, was published in 2009 by Henry Holt Books for Young Readers. My second novel, a YA post-apocalytic novel titled The Way We Fall, will be published by Disney-Hyperion in January 2012. My short stories have appeared in magazines and ezines such as Brutarian Quarterly, On Spec, and Son And Foe. I'm the founder and maintainer of the Toronto SF Writers Group.

I used to love writing stories, and then I went to University. To this day, I'm still recovering from the trauma of a University fiction writing class. I'm not sure how to characterize my stories within the broader SF genre. All my stories have at least some magical quality to it, even if they're mostly sci-fi. As for reading, the only thing I can't stand is wading through large numbers of made-up names that are hard to pronounce. The only place I've ever been published is the National Library of Poetry, and if you know anything about this organization, you'll know that it's nothing to be proud of.

It probably started when I was a little kid. I didn't want to hurt someone's feelings, or I didn't want to get into trouble, so I made something up instead. I lied. And soon I discovered that lying was something I was good at. Grammar, punctuation, character and all that good stuff took time to develop, but I could always make something up and make it sound believable and interesting. Recently I decided to use my powers of bamboozlement for good and not... semi-good. I'm currently peddling an epic fantasy novel entitled: Of Sacred Powers and Beasts Divine. If I can just find a publisher to listen to me, I'm pretty sure I can convince him or her that it is the single greatest work of fiction ever written (at least until they read it).

I enjoy reading fantasy and historical fiction, especially stories with themes of political intrigue or complex interpersonal relationships, or books that offer rich, enchanting worlds to explore. Favourite authors of the moment include Guy Gavriel Kay, Peter Beagle, Jacqueline Carey and Sarah Waters. For me, wanting to write is mostly about being a control freak! Even the best stories invariably leave me thinking, "That was good, but if it were up to me, I would have changed a few things..." Although I'm not much of a short story fan, the bulk of my writing has been short pieces, mostly light-hearted fantasy. I'm also working to massage two manuscripts into a "read-able" shape. I've been a member of this group since 2003.
