Megan's followers

The Psychic Megan Series consists of twenty-four novelettes about a young girl's growing realisation that she is able to do things that none of her family can. Megan is twelve years old in the first volume. She has two seemingly insurmountable problems. Her mother is frightened of her daughter's latent abilities and not only will not help her but actively discourages her; and she can’t find a teacher to help her develop her supernatural, psychic powers. For she wants not only to know what it is possible to do and how to do it, but to what end she should put her special abilities. Megan is a good girl, so it would seem obvious that she would tend towards using her powers for good, but it is not always easy to do the right thing even if you know what that is.

These stories about Megan will appeal to anyone who has an interest in psychic powers, the supernatural and the paranormal and is between the ages of ten and a hundred years old.

In Megan's Followers, Megan's parents allow her to open accounts with the most popular social media companies. They don't know much about it themselves, but they had read that it was not advisable for children under thirteen to join. Since she had recently passed that age, they had no objection. Megan soon devises ways of gaining followers and influencing them through her various activities at school. She is surprised to find out that her posts are going around the world, and one 'dear old friend' contacts her to join her followers. She is over the Moon, but also discovers how easy it is to become vulnerable to predators!

Sample text:


It was Saturday morning on a Bank Holiday weekend and Megan awoke from a dream in which she had been to the beach with her grandfather – her mother’s father, who had died before she was born, but whom she had always seen quite often, for a dead person. They had travelled to a beach that he had shown her before in the first lesson that she had ever had on flying or Astral Travelling, as they called it.

She loved the sensation of freedom that it gave her and she was pleased that she was now capable of remembering where she had been and with whom, if she hadn’t gone alone. That ability to remember was a fairly recent development, which she had been told to expect as she got used to performing her new trick as she still thought of it, despite having been told several times that it was something quite normal that everyone could and indeed did do regularly. The ‘trick’, if there was one, was to remember where one had been and what one had done.

Megan was not the sort of person to lie in, especially when the sun was streaming in through the open curtains, so she got up, put on her dressing gown and slippers and went downstairs, following the glorious smell of frying bacon. She had been told in school in one of her lessons about the dangers of eating too much meat and cholesterol, but a traditional breakfast of cornflakes, followed by bacon and eggs, toast and tea was still her favourite meal of the day. She liked the smell of coffee, but she was not allowed to drink that until she was sixteen, because her mother had some idea that it could hurt a young person.

She wasn’t sure whether that was true and she didn’t really believe that meat could harm her either, especially not when you were a growing, active young teenager. Adults had some very strange ideas, she thought sometimes.
