This week we're so excited to welcome our first guest, Meghan Deans! Meghan is a writer, television enthusiast, and book marketer. She writes plays about history and stories about falling in love at Trader Joe's. She is the Senior Marketing Director for Ecco, an imprint of HarperCollins.

Please come back soon.
