Happy to have bestselling author Ayden K. Morgen back on the blog to share some holiday memories with us today!
What is your favorite part about the holidays?
I really love finding the perfect gifts for the people closest to me. It's always so much fun to find unique items that fit who they are to me. It's also a ton of fun to see how excited they get.
What about your least favorite part?
Christmas music. I'm sorry! We have a station here that starts playing nothing but Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving. It drives me insane.
Do you take writing breaks during the holidays?
I may take a break for a day or two, but otherwise, I try to keep writing through the holidays. It's the only way I stay on schedule and get things done!
What was the highlight of 2019 for you?
Getting a 4th supervisor at work. I've been the only supervisor in our 911 Communication Center on the 2 night shifts for the last two years. I spent the first six months of the year working 60 hours a week. We finally got another supervisor this September to help and it has been SO NICE to have more free time to spend with my husband.
Did you have a particular book or books that you enjoyed this year?
I discovered Ella Goode this year. I've really enjoyed some of her titles. I also re-read the Tairen Soul series by C.L. Wilson and fell in love all over again. It's such an incredible series.
Do you make New Year’s resolutions or do anything special for the New Year?
I usually don't make New Year's resolutions. I set goals for the year and try to ensure I accomplish as many as possible.
Favorite song of 2019?
Someone You Loved by Lewis Capaldi. It's such a powerful song!
What was your best moment as a writer this year?
I've had some really great moments this year. I republished my very first title with a new publisher. I finished a series I started several years ago. I wrote a new series. But I think my best moment was finally getting to write and publish Fight for You after waiting nine years. The story holds such a special place in my heart. I really love that I got to share it with the world this year.
What do you do when you realize nothing in your life is what you’ve believed it to be?
When Arionna Jacobs loses her mother in a tragic accident, her world is turned upside down. She’s forced to leave her old life behind and move in with her father. Dace Matthews, a teaching assistant at her new college, is torn in two, unable to communicate with the feral wolf caged inside him.
When they meet, everything they thought they knew about life unravels. Dace has intimate access to Arionna’s mind, and something deep within her fights to rise to the surface. They don't understand what's happening to them or why, and they're running out of time to sort out the strange occurrences around them.
Their meeting sets an ancient Norse prophesy of destruction in motion, and what destiny has in store for them is bigger than either could have ever imagined. Unless they learn to trust themselves and one another, they may never resolve the mystery surrounding who they are to one another, and what that means for the world.
