Meg Cowley

Meg Cowley was first interviewed in episode 3 of this podcast, in April 2016.

At that time Meg was experiencing her biggest success in self-publishing having created a series of adult colouring books which were selling very well.

However, the bottom dropped out of that market and Meg had to so a very sharp pivot to set her writing career back on track.

Prior to the breakthrough with the adult colouring books, Meg had written two young-adult ‘sword and sorcery' novels and two illustrated children's books.

She's now returned to writing fiction but is still using her artistic skills to generate an author income.
