About Megan Lowe:
Megan Lowe is a lost journalism graduate who after many painful years searching for a job in that field, decided if she couldn’t write news stories, she would start listening to the characters whispering stories to her and decided to write them down.  She writes primarily new adult and contemporary romance stories with sport and music themes.

Based on the Gold Coast, Megan's heart belongs to New York City. When she’s not writing, she’s either curled up with a good book, travelling, or screaming at the TV, willing her sporting teams to pull out the win.

Interview With Megan Lowe:
1. Can you tell us a little about your books?
They're contemporary romance or new adult romances with sports and/or music themes. The majority of them are set in Australia, which is where I'm from and based. 

2. When did you know you wanted to write a book?
I have a degree in journalism, and spent years trying to get a job in that field without success. I've always loved reading and once I gave up until job hunting I started reading, a lot. I'd made a list (I'm a big list maker!) of things I liked with the thought of one day writing a book which featured those things. That's when I knew I wanted to write. I never thought that book would be published though!

3. Using one sentence, can you describe Breaking the Cycle?
It's a fast paced, full throttle Insta-love story with hot boys on bikes.

4. Do you work with an outline, or just write?
I have a vague outline with moments I want to include. Sometimes those moment make it in, sometimes they don't. For the most part I try to let my characters guide me which is always an interesting ride!

5. Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby when writing? 
I'm living on flavoured water and, I don't know if you have this in America, but we have a company here called Allens, and they make a lolly (like gummy candy) mix made up of entirely red lollies; snakes, raspberries, red frogs, it's like the best thing ever and I have a jar full of them on my desk. I eat them way more than I should!

    6.  Do you listen to music while you write?
I do, I have to! I can't stand a quiet house! I majored in popular music at uni so it's a big part of my life. At the moment I'm listening to Halestorm, Green Day, Unwritten Law, An Aussie band called Hands like Houses, A Day to Remember and PVRIS. 

7.  Which famous person, living or dead would you like to meet and why?
Freddie Mercury. He had such a presence about him and an incredible voice. I saw Queen with Adam Lambert a few years ago and they were amazing but I would've loved to have had 
the opportunity to see Freddie perform. 
I'd also like to meet Alan Alda. I grew up with MASH so it's almost like he's a grandfather to me, he seems so lovely!

8. What are writing projects are you currently working on?
I've just finished Rocking Racers 2 (Breaking the Cycle is book 1), No Place to Hide. It's Cole and Knley's story. It took me a little longer to write than I expected and took more than a few turns so it was a very interesting experience.
I'm also working on another contribution for an Australian themed anthology my publisher is putting together. Currently it's titled Upside Down, Back to Front, but that could change.
As well as that I've begun work on Rocking Racers 3, which is Mav's story. I've got to admit, I didn't think much about Mav when writing BTC, but he popped up while I was writing No Place, and he's kind of stolen my heart. I'm really looking forward to digging in and getting his story on paper.
