Christine Morgan divides her writing time among many genres, from horror to historical, from superheroes to smut, anything in between and combinations thereof. She's a future crazy-cat-lady and a longtime gamer, who enjoys British television, cheesy action/disaster movies, cooking and crafts.
Her short stories have appeared in dozens of anthologies. Her most recent novels include Murder Girls, His Blood, and The Horned Ones: Cornucopia. She'll have a collection of bloodthirsty Viking tales coming out in 2017.
She also edits (her current ongoing project being the Fossil Lake Anthology series), is a regular contributor to The Horror Fiction Review, and recently relocated to Portland where she's delighted to be involved with the horror and bizarro writer scene.

Interesting one, this, because the author is telling the story from a young child's point of view, which is one almighty challenge because it limits the writer severely in terms of vocabulary and metaphors. The author succeeds pretty well in this, although I found it strange that Megan didn't seem to know what blood is, only referring to it as red stuff - surely even the youngest children know blood from falling and scraping their knees?
Overall I don't think I enjoyed this quite as much as the other stories I've read of Ms Morgan's, perhaps in the end the limited vocabulary worked against it, I'm not sure. But it's a good, original idea and a brave piece of writing.
