Author Megan Ahasic Publishes Fantasy Book as an Ode to College Teacher

The author’s Christian children’s book started out as a sketch which she drew for her teacher way back in college.

Former college teacher provided his student the spark to complete her debut children’s fantasy book.

“Heartical” (Tate Publishing, 2012) by Streator, Illinois author Megan Ahasic is about four friends who band together to seek out adventures out in the sea. The inspiration for the Christian fantasy book started out as a sketch that the author created for her former college teacher Brian Campbell, whom she described as “a very good teacher.” In fact, the author even got her book’s title from the word he came up with.
The sketch was also accompanied with short stories that she later turned into a novel. “I wrote these three short stories and after I moved on from that college, I decided I was going to turn it into a novel,” said the author. “I used experiences from my life, plus a lot of fantasy to create a neat little plot.”
Even the setting and the characters of “Heartical” have something to do with her teacher’s affinity for all things Hawaiian. The sketch that she drew for him was that of Aloha, the main character of the book. The other characters include Mari, a dolphin abandoned by his pod, and Huron and Jake, brothers who live near the beach.
“He (Aloha) is a little boy around 8 years old,” said the author. “He has reddish-brown hair and teal eyes. He is wearing this Hawaiian shirt with a palm tree, sun and a couple of sand dunes on it and he has these yellow shorts that read, ‘Aloha rules’ on them.”
The author acknowledged that her teacher was the spark for “Heartical,” which for this reason she dedicated the book to him.
“Heartical” is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
