Morgan is an ex-ballerina turned YA writer. She has been immersed in the arts since the young age of 4, where she trained in ballet under the tutelage of Julie Orlob, which provided her to further her training with New York City Ballet’s principal dancers, Maria Calegari and Bart Cook. Morgan performed alongside a professional ballet company for just under a decade and has danced on prestigious stages like soloing at Carnegie Hall in New York City. She has taught hundreds of girls in her fifteen years of teaching, where some of her students have received full-ride scholarships to schools like School of American Ballet, the Harid Conservatory, Kirov Academy of Ballet, and Pacific Northwest Ballet, to name a few.

Morgan discovered writing when her three-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. It was through that experience which instilled the need to share art and magic with children through words on the page. Her first piece of writing won an online HarperCollins story contest, where her work rocketed above 30,000 other projects in under 2 weeks.  Along with writing, Morgan is also an accomplished concert pianist. She was the first girl in Utah to receive the 75 pt. Gold Cup in the Utah Federation of Music in piano solo/concerto competition. Morgan currently lives with her X-Games gold medalist husband and four young children in the cold mountains of Alaska.
