Megan Reilly is an environmentally conscious freelancer based in Santa Monica, CA.

Fresh from the land of agriculture (California's Central Valley), this semi-new-to-town reporter is poking around for stories — writing her findings on everything from the latest recycling trends to the mysterious facts she learns about strangers doing some cool, innovative things in the name of sustainability.

A former newspaper journalist and a current self-proclaimed "features-holic," Megan credits her fascination with features from her time as Marketing Director at Linden Publishing. She thought that she had dealt with every kind of fascinating character imaginable in city council and school board meetings as a reporter, then quickly learned that authors have the most interesting stories to tell by far.

Megan has a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication and Journalism with a broadcast emphasis and a caffeine-induced/sweet-tooth craving for coffee and chocolate.

As for how seriously she takes every single one of her creative endeavors as they relate to her journalistic and authorial pursuits, Oscar Wilde describes her philosophy best: “It is what you read when you don't have to that determines who you will be when you can't help it.”
