Sunday Times Best Selling & Award winning author
About Megan Rix
I’m a triple award winning Sunday Times bestselling author and animal lover. I have 2 dogs of my own called Traffy and Bella and used to train dogs for Helper Dogs.
Traffy sometimes comes into schools with me to listen to children read. I’d have loved it if she came to my school when I was a child! It took catching whooping cough to give me the reading bug. 8 weeks of being in bed and reading the library books my mum brought home for me turned me from a non-reader into book lover.

When Megan and Ian got married, they wanted to start a family. But their desire to be parents ended up bringing one furry bundle of fun after another into their lives. At the same time as embarking on difficult and traumatic fertility treatment, Megan and Ian became involved with a charity which provides helper dogs to people with disabilities. And into their home one day came Emma, a soft, sweet-natured puppy with whom they fell instantly in love.
However, after six months Emma had completed her training and was given to someone in need. To get over their broken hearts, Megan and Ian took in another pup: Freddy. And fell in love all over again . . . only for Freddy to move on too. Megan and Ian didn’t know if they could keep taking in these adorable puppies and giving them away later. It was getting too hard, too painful. But then, one Christmas, little Traffy came along . . .
