About Megan


Megan’s “Day job”

Megan was born in Scottsdale, Arizona, and raised in a tiny town in upstate New York. She makes her living as a musical theatre actor.
She spent last year (2017-2018) on the Wizard of Oz North American tour. This year, she’s working down in sunny southwest Florida performing shows like 42nd St, and Elf.
She’s fortunate that her husband is also a performer, so they’ve been able to travel and work on stage together all over the country, even as far away as Denali, Alaska. Unfortunately, she has no pets, since she travels too much. However, it is her dream to own an orange cat and name him Crookshanks.


She actually began writing in earnest about seven years ago. she was in a production where she was really unhappy and needed something to keep her grounded and sane, so she started working on a manuscript.
Having found her outlet— writing—she couldn’t really stop. she loves storytelling so much, and being able to work on the page and on the stage is really amazing.
She’s also started blending her two loves by working as a lyricist for Second Chances: The Thrift Shop Musical and Princess Camp: The Musical.

How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days

How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Friggin' Days (The Tale of Bryant Adams Book 1) by [O'Russell, Megan]

Ever wanted to grow a five-story tall flower in central park? How about fight a deadly battle under the subway tunnels of Manhattan?

Don’t worry. I never wanted to either. But if you’re ever being chased by ladies made of mist and you have to save the girl with the sparkly eyes you’ve never had the guts to say actual words to, there’s an app for that.

I found a magic cell phone, opened an app I shouldn’t have, burned down the set shop for my high school’s theatre, and it was all downhill from there. A drag queen seer who lives under a bridge is my only hope for keeping my mom alive, and I think the cops might be after me for destroying my dad’s penthouse.

But it gets better! Now I’m stuck being the sidekick to the guy who got me into this mess in the first place. It’ll be a miracle if I survive until Monday.

The second book in the Bryant Adams series 
Seven Things Not to Do When Everyone’s Trying to Kill You”
will be published on April 16th, 2019.

Girl of Glass

Girl of Glass by [O'Russell, Megan]

Two worlds…one glass wall…no turning back.

The human race has been divided. The chosen few live in the safety of the domes, watching through their glass walls as those left on the outside suffer and die. But desperation has brought invention, and new drugs have given the outsiders the strength to roam the poisoned night unafraid – but it comes at a price.​

Seventeen-year-old Nola Kent has spent her life in the domes, being trained to protect her little piece of the world that has been chosen to survive. The mission of the domes is to preserve the human race, not to help the sick and starving. But when outsider Kieran Wynne begs for Nola’s help in saving an innocent life, she is drawn into a world of darkness and danger. The suffering on the other side of the glass is beyond anything Nola had imagined, and turning her back on the outside world to return to the safety of the domes may be more than she can stand. Even when her home is threatened by the very people Nola wants to help.

The Girl Without Magic

Death would have been easier, but the Siren wasn’t through with her.

Seventeen-year-old Maggie Trent fell out of a battle and into the Siren’s Realm, a land where secrets hide in the shadows and pleasure comes at a price Maggie is unwilling to pay.

The time for the Siren’s reckoning has come, sweeping away all she deems unworthy to live in her realm. Those without magic are hunted by the Siren. Those with magic are hunted by the Stricken. Fighting or hiding seem necessary to survive. But there is a different way.

Bertrand Wayland, unaging and unrelenting in his determination for Maggie to accept her fate, slips in and out through the stitches that bind the Siren’s Realm to other worlds, gaining magic and having glorious adventures. When Maggie follows Bertrand out of the Siren’s Realm, seeking an adventure of her own, she finds instead a world of magic on the eve of war. To save innocent lives Maggie risks her heart, her life, and her only chance of returning to the Siren’s Realm.

What can I say?

I am meeting some incredible people through this blog. Megan O’Russell has built herself an amazing career through which she is able to pursue the two activities activities she loves the most, writing and theatrical performing, either of which would be a dream for most creative people. Other enviable gifts are having a husband who works with her, and her fantastic profile (see photo below). I’d love to know who does her covers; they’re great, very eye-catching.
It looks to me as if Megan is successful in many ways and I wish her continued good fortune. The only drawback in her life at the moment is not being able to have an orange cat called Crookshanks.
