A Visit to Ridgemont University with Meredith Taylor

About the Ridgemont University series

This post originally appeared on J.M. Snyder's blog here.

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and this year I decided just to sit down and do it. I let my imagination run wild, and told the stories I wanted to tell about young love and butterflies-in-your-stomach moments.
It was exhilarating seeing my first novel come to life, and after Hot Off the Press was done and dusted, many more stories about Ridgemont University came to me. Writing this series has been the most fun I’ve had in a long time, and I’m amazed that there are people out there who enjoy reading my novels as much as I enjoy writing them.
I’ve written three Ridgemont University novels and one short story over the past few months, and I’m getting ready to release my fourth novel in the series soon. I’m very proud of the books, but my latest novel, All-Nighters, holds a special place for me. It’s about the struggle of letting go of the pain of the past and opening up the space for new love to flourish.
My protagonists, Jesse and Luke, really fuelled my imagination and I discovered layers to them through the writing process that were surprising and heart-warming. I never understood how novelists said they grew to love their characters, but it’s happening to me as I continue on my journey of writing.
For the month of August, 2016, all of the Ridgemont University novels are on promotion for the price of only 99¢. I hope you enjoy them!
