WELCOME to my virtual home. Pull up a seat and let's chat. Okay, I'll start...

WHO - I'm a city gal married to a video game developer and a mother to four daughters who are trying to save the world; a Watty award winning author; published with Hachette Audiobooks; and a Paid Stories writer. Morgan Rider is my pen name.

WHAT - I write fantasy, suspense, and romance because sexy guys with wings are a turn on even if the covers are cliché.

WHERE - I was raised in Las Vegas under the lax supervision of musician parents. But I set down roots in Florida next door to the happiest place on earth.

WHEN - My exact carbon dating is a trade secret, but it was a great time to live in Vegas because Elvis was still alive and I got to meet famous people before their reputations tanked.

* I started wearing glasses before I could crawl
* I suffer from katsaridaphobia (fear of cockroaches)
* I've never broken a bone, but I've been hit by a car
* I spent a week at a Buddhist monastery
* I can name the actors in movies I've never seen
* I would rather go hungry than go without music
