When I was little to have an American father was not logical or normal and megan It was a name that I liked a lot, "said the novelist, born in Germany and raised in Spain.
"When they published me the first novel they asked me if I wanted to put Maria del Carmen or Megan, because they knew me by Megan," said the author, who asked him to add a surname so that it was not a pseudonym so short. "At that time I was listening to Maxwell, who is a singer who loves me, and I thought of Megan Maxwell, I love how she is and I decided to publish as Megan Maxwell," she squinted.

"I started sending it to all the publishers and they told me all that no. They told me that the women's characters I created had a lot of character, that it had to be reduced. I said it did not lower them. I have lived in a house in the That we were my grandmother, my two aunts, my mother and me. All women. How are we not going to have character? "He said.
"I prefer not to publish to publish something that I do not like me, they started telling me no. That's when my warrior part comes, I remember that I told my mother 'Get ready, mom, that the day I publish I buy you House '. And I did it, "the writer said, who said he had contacted about 70 or 80 editorials. "Until they published me, they spent about 12 or 14 years," she added.Date Of Update: 14 March 2022, 04:33
