Megan Morgan grew up in Fairmont, West Virginia, where she spent her time roaming the woods and contemplating places that never were. She found her doorways into these unexplored vistas at her local library, lined up and waiting on the science fiction and fantasy shelves. She loved spaceships (naturally), and dragons (of course), and lost her heart to all things Star Wars.
By junior high she was writing her own books and sharing them with friends. Seeing now the effect of the worlds she created set her on the road to universe-building, and these universes would be populated by dynamic and diverse characters she’d seen so rarely in the books she grew up with. In college, she eagerly refined her writing skills, and never lost her passion for defying expectations.
These days she’s doing just what she set out to do: reveling in her geeky passions, nerding out about words and story structure, and giving a wider audience the chance to see themselves in stories that examine what it means to be human.
She now lives with her book-loving children in Baltimore, Maryland, where she is working on The Altered Rise, the second installment in the Sentinel Quartet.
