Morgen

Morgen Bailey at BeaconLit literary festival, Ivinghoe. (Credit: Cliff Hide for BeaconLit)Morgen always loved books and writing (and blames reading Stephen King books under the duvet with a torch as a teen for her wearing glasses) but it wasn’t until she went to an evening class in 2005 that she considered it as a career. Rejections and long days later and here she is with ten books and seven creative writing courses to her name.

Morgen lives and breathes writing. When she’s not editing (her day job), she’s writing (crime and women’s fiction), walking her dog, out with friends, at a literary festival (speaking or visiting), or at the cinema (the only time she sits and does nothing).

  • Her favourite colour’s purple;
  • She can swim upside down underwater;
  • Her dog’s real name is Leicester Dree Your Weird (yes, Your not You’re!) but a previous owner called him Gus.
