Interview with Megan, the main character in Riley's Secret by Christina Smith and International Giveaway!

Riley's Secret (A Moon's Glow, #1)Boy, do I have a treat for you guys today! Please welcome Megan Banks, the main character from the Moon's Glow trilogy! She has taken time out of her very busy schedule to talk with us today.

Goodreads Book Description of Riley's Secret: Megan Banks feels like an imposter in her own life; she doesn’t belong with her friends or with her parents, who ignore her. After a fire she’s indirectly involved with, she finds herself with two hundred hours of community service. It’s the charity she volunteers at that finally makes her feel like she belongs. These people, with whom she has nothing in common, mean more to her than her rich, selfish friends.

But for some reason her supervisor, Nate Green, doesn’t want her there. He thinks she’s a self-centered rich girl who deserves to be in jail. After she’s threatened by the kids who started the fire, Nate and Megan form a strange friendship, built only for her protection. But the more she feels for him, the more he pushes her away.

As they become closer, Megan knows Nate is attracted to her as well, but she also believes that he is hiding something. But she could never guess what he really is. Before she realizes what is happening, she becomes involved in a world she didn't know existed.

In this strange new reality, can she finally find a place where she belongs?

Thanks so much for joining us at Ensconced in YA for an interview, Megan! Can you tell us a little bit about where you grew up and a bit about your family?
I grew up in Creekford in a very large mansion.  It’s in upstate New York.  My family isn’t what you’d call close. My mother’s idea of bonding is handing over overpriced designer clothes. I spend more time with one of my favorite people, Mona, who is my nanny/ cook and her husband who is my gardener.

Tell us about that hottie you've had your eye on, Nate. When did you realize you had a crush on him?
I think it started three years ago when he came up to me in the school cafeteria. He stared at me, and when I smiled at him, he took off. And then ignored me when I tried to talk to him a few days later. Every girl in my school has doodled his name on their notebooks at least once in the last three years. But sadly, no one has caught his eye yet.

What is your favorite restaurant? Song? Candy?
Restaurant-Luigi’s Pizza
Song is hard, I have so many, but I think my favorite right now is Stay by Rihanna, or We are young by Fun. I can’t decide which I like better.
Candy- Swedish Berries, or anything chocolate.

Every girl dreams of their wedding dress. Do you have an image in your mind of what it might look like?
Yes. Big and fluffy with tulle, and a sash along the waist. I saw it on Say Yes To The Dress.

I love that show-- it's so addicting! Who is your celebrity crush and why?
Paul Wesley from the Vampire Diaries, because his character reminds me of Nate. And he’s not hard to look at either.

I agree-- he is super hot... but I have to say, I think Nate is more attractive... in a platonic way! *ducks* Ummmm, so tell us about Riley House and why you love it there.
It feels like the family I never had, and when I help someone, it makes me feel good. I’ve never felt that way before. My parents may spend a lot of money giving to charities, but it’s all for show.
Just one more question... What's your favorite quote?
Anything Sue Sylvester from Glee says, but the only thing I can think of right now is "Who in God's name gives a hot wet steamy dump about student government!"

Thanks so much for joining us, Megan! We hope to have you back again sometime soon!
