Featured Interview With Megan Erin Galloway
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am a 70-year-old survivor of child abuse, and I had my first book published in January 2018. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and now live on the beautiful Oregon Coast. I am not currently owned by a pet.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I have been a reader as far back as I can remember. As a child, children’s books didn’t interest me – I preferred to read mythology, paleontology, astronomy, and other “adult” topics. Although I’ve been a reader all of my life, I have only been a “writer” for less than a year. Realizing that I have survived significant trauma with which others may also be experiencing, I found my old journals and wrote the kind of self-help book that I had been seeking for decades.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I like the works of Esther Hicks and Abraham-Hicks, and read their books and articles, and listen to their YouTube videos. I prefer nonfiction, particularly spiritual, metaphysical, and biographical books. A writer who inspired me in my middle years was Louise Hay, who was a child abuse survivor who went on to inspire and uplift people with her affirmations. She become a role model for me, and I finally convinced myself that I had something worthwhile to share through writing a book.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My first/current book is entitled “Pieces: Help for Your Life Journey.” I wrote about half the contents of the book over 10 years ago, as journal entries, when my heart cried out in anger, sadness, and pain. I finally decided to turn the journals, reflecting my struggle with overcoming false views of the world, into a book late in 2017. I want this book to be of help to other child abuse survivors who are looking for ways out of the darkness and oppression of past traumas.
