Meggan Howatson: one of our NEW writers!
Q: Where did you get the idea for your story in Grey Area?
Meggan: I came up with the idea for my Grey Area story while taking a Gaelic class at Cape Breton University. I had the best instructor. He was so much fun!
He used to tell us lots of stories, and in my first year of classes, at Halloween, he told us about how the rift between our world and the otherworld was believed to be at its thinnest at the time of harvest. It was a belief of the Gaels. The day my instructor told us this, I left class feeling inspired to write this story.
After much rewriting and tweaking, I finally got the story to what it is today, and I have to say, I am satisfied with how it turned out. I hope everyone enjoys it! And Hector, if you're reading this, thanks so much for the awesome Gaelic classes, and the inspiration for my first published story!
