Promising tennis players Chad Warren and Megan Williams met on the court when he was 26 and she was 16. Just a few days later, Chad was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, an incurable cancer of the blood.
While it would be more than three years and a bone marrow transplant before Chad and Megan finally kissed, it was the beginning of a love story you will never forget - and of a battle they shared and fought together.
"Too often, we hear about someone who has cancer, and we hear about their "brave battle." We hear that they've won, or they've (tragically) lost. But unless we've been at their bedside and watched them fight to recover from the horrendous treatments meant to save them, we just never know the human cost. We don't know how the people around them grow in strength and love in order to support them; we don't see the great intentions and human frailty of their caregivers. We don't see their heroism or their exhaustion - or the bottomless well of their love for life.
I hope that everyone reads this book. It's a page turner, a sweet romance and a tear jerker, no question. But it also serves a great purpose, bringing us face to face with cancer and, in the process, revealing how incredibly wonderful life is." - Goodreads Reviewer

About the Author
It took her a little over a year to write Our Interrupted Fairy Tale - writing 1,000 words a day and sifting through old emails, diaries, letters and blogs.
She moved to the spectacular North Shore with Chad in 2008, and have stayed there ever since. She still lives in their mini-castle in the sky (read: very small, very high condo that over looks the ocean and city).
Since moving to the North Shore, Megan has run thousands and thousands of kilometres on the West Vancouver seawalls. Most of which have been with girlfriends, who she will tell you, have saved her thousands and thousands of dollars in therapy.
