Talking About Forbidden Love With Megan D. Martin

Southern Daughter is a story that I thought about for several years, but never actually put pen to paper (or fingers to keys, lol). I have always been the kind of person who feels a certain attachment to stories of forbidden love. There is just something about love conquering all that inspires me—and what is more forbidden than a love between a plantation owner's daughter and a slave in the heart of the civil war?

When Tara told me about the opportunity to write a story exemplifying strength in women, this was the first to pop in my head. Standing up for the person you love is one thing, but standing up for someone who doesn’t even count as person (at the time) is another. To show her love for him, Carrie Ann has to give up everything she's ever known. Not only does she stand up for love, she stands up for what she believes in, even if it took her longer than it should have.

It was such a pleasure to write Carrie Ann's story and even more so because I got to go through this whole experience with this group of wonderful women writers. I hope you will all check out HerStory. Thanks for stopping by!


In 1861, falling in love with a slave was not something that the daughter of a southern plantation owner did, but Carrie Ann is not your average southern belle. She will have to make a choice between the only way of life she's ever known and the man she's come to love. Will she make her decision in time?
