An Interview with Kit Morgan

  1. KitMorgan_AMidSummersMailOrderBride_1400pxWhere do you get your ideas for your stories? 

I live in a log cabin on twenty acres with a creek.  We grew up with horses and always used to play cowboys and Indians. I guess that inspired the western side of me. My friends all had horses, and we rode everywhere pretending we were in the old west. We’d split ourselves up into two groups. The posse and the outlaws.  The other thing that inspires me is visiting historic places. 

  1. Do you have a view in your writing space? What does your space look like? 

I use voice recognition softway a lot and so write outside. Often times I sit on a bench down by the creek or walk the property. Lately, however, I’ve been having to write indoors due to the fact we have a cougar in the area and he’s gotten pretty close to the house.

  1. Has your muse always known what genres you would write and be published in? 

Yes, kinda sort of.  I’ve always loved historicals and knew I wanted to write them. I’ve started with westerns but plan to venture into the regency era late this year or first part of 2016.

  1. What project(s) are you working on now? 

I just finished up Amon (Prairie Grooms, Book Seven) and am now going to start another Dalton Brides Book! Oh boy! 

  1. KitMorgan_LoveInIndependence_1400pxDo you write under a pen name? Why or why not? 

Yes, I have two, in fact.  I write under Geralyn Beauchamp (Scifi/time travel) and then of course, Kit Morgan.  I’ll share with you a little secret … Kit Morgan is actually a character from my time travel series Time Masters. SHE is writing all those westerns!  And of course, if some of my Time Master characters happen to show up in my westerns, could it be because she’s using their adventures to fuel her own muse? Or is she recording their adventures and simply using them as her books?  That Kitty Morgan! You just never know what she’ll do next!

  1. What is your typical day like? 

I get up early, about 6am, have my coffee in bed (ahhhhh) then get up and do a workout, have some breakfast and start my day. I try to get my writing done before noon or one in the afternoon so I have time to do the business end of things, or lately, babysit my nephew.  Then editing or more writing in the evening after dinner, unless I treat myself and watch a dvd! 

  1. How did you get started writing?

I’ve always wanted to write, but marriage, kids, family, was always at the forefront. But then another author (Julia Quinn, I was a book reviewer at the time) challenged me to start writing. Write a book so I could at least say that I did. That book was Time Masters, Book One; The Call under my pen name of Geralyn Beauchamp, and the rest is history. I wrote that book back in 1994, finished it, then stuck it in a trunk. I set out what she said to do. In 2007 I pulled it out and it was published by a small press. When the economy tanked in 2008/09, they closed their doors as so many other small presses did. In 2012 I decided to turn it into an e-book. In 2013, I decided to try my hand at westerns, and let Kitty Morgan loose! The rest is history.
