To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

RILEY CARSON AND THE CHEROKEE CAVES.....FOR THE LOVE OF DOGS!
Megan Wargula is an INSPIRATION!
Megan has taken her love and compassion for dogs
to make their lives better and safer through her writing.
Let's meet this lovely friend of the Divine Miss M......
Megan Wargula is a
self-proclaimed “dog nerd” – the kind of person who knows the dogs in her
neighborhood better than their humans! A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Megan has
always loved animals! When not at her day job as a graphic
designer, Megan spends the rest of her time writing and enjoying life with her
husband and dogs, Finlay and Riley.
Her new book,
RILEY CARSON AND THE CHEROKEE CAVES,
is her first novel and is self-published!
Our lovely daughter,
took a Saturday afternoon, along with the darling neighbor twins,
Aubrey and Olivia
to the book signing for Megan's new novel.
Miss M knew that Miss Aubrey
(the cute little red-head in the back seat)
was an avid reader and shared a love of animals
with Megan. She had recommended Megan
obtain some feedback from Aubrey while writing her story,
as the middle school age group was her target audience.
The two did indeed correspond with each other
during the rough drafts of her novel.
These two were SO EXCITED to meet Megan
discuss the details of her book.
Megan was JUST as excited to meet them too!
Now I ask you...how cute are these little
Even though they are twins,
they are so very talented in their own interests and hobbies...
Just what is the storyline?
Remember when you were about this age
and The Wonderful World of Disney
would be shown on Sunday evening...
all those heart-warming tales of animals
and young children...
you cried, you laughed and you felt compassion......
well Riley Carson does the same.....
Riley Carson and The Cherokee Caves
is a middle-grade adventure novel set in historic Roswell, Georgia. Author,
Megan Wargula is passionate about dogs and was determined to figure out
how to make a difference for them. Megan decided to write stories that
would both educate and entertain people of all ages…and Riley Carson was born!

the town of Roswell, Georgia so much. Many of the places in the book are real,
