S. C. Megale

S. C. Megale is an author and filmmaker. She's been profiled in USA Today, The Washington Post, and New York Newsday, and has appeared on NBC’s Today Show and the CBS Evening News for her philanthropic and literary work. As a humanitarian, she's spoken on the USS Intrepid, at the NASDAQ opening bell, and to universities and doctors nationwide. She enjoys making connections all over the world.

Megale was raised in the long grass of the Civil War, hunting for relics and catching fireflies along the banks of Bull Run. A shark tooth, flutes, and a flask are some of the items that hang from her wheelchair, and she had a fear of elevators until realizing this was extremely inconvenient. She lives with her family which includes her parents, sister and brother, service dog, and definitely-not-service dog.

Megale's new book, This is Not a Love Scene, is her first published novel.

Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. Her reply:
Grasp your phone or desktop firmly over what I am about to tell you. I'm a student at the University of Virginia and have not read a work of fiction for pleasure since reading Clifford the Big Red Dog in the library and crying because I love this and I'm tired and the coffee store closed and I have to read hundreds of pages of Suetonius and Oceanography. I'm a History major. A lot of primary sources. What I'm immensely proud of, though, is my collection of books at home. When Borders Bookstore closed, I purchased a shelf off their store floor. That shelf, now a relic, is my pride and joy, holding over a hundred of the coolest, rarest, most valued books. Among the library of that shelf are: signed Hunger Games, Harry Potter, John Green, John Grisham, David Baldacci, Divergent, Percy Jackson, and Ranger's Apprentice books, raw conference proceedings, gravestone records, and marriage records of Virginia, astronomical surveys of Stonehenge, a doctoral thesis on werewolves, and much more.
