"Even for those who have not yet read or fallen in love with Megan's dying yet hilarious main character Vivian, this album works as a standalone musical experience and moves from strong, catchy, soulful tunes to gentle, fragile, poetic insights that reflect the complexity of modern relationships."
Megan is currently working on her second novel 'The Tuckshop Lady' (working title) which will also be published through Hachette and is due for release in 2023. Stay tuned for a sneak peak.
I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which I live, work and learn. I pay respect to our elders, past, present and emerging. I am proud of the pivotal role all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play in our community. Sovereignty was never ceded and Australia always was and always will be Aboriginal Land.
