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.

Many self-published or amateur works quickly betray themselves within the first couple of pages, usually with a clunky writing style, a cliched opening or a rogue grammatical error. Within a couple of pages of Christine Morgan's "A Hurt Too Deep" I realised I was reading the work of somebody who really knows how to write - it was not just free of errors, the construction of individual sentences and plot as a whole had a very professional feel. It faithfully adheres to the old maxim "show, don't tell" and isn't afraid to let the reader piece together the necessary information instead of spelling it out.
I won't say much about the story itself because if I expand any more on the preview descriptions I'd be in danger of spoiling the surprises. The plot isn't especially stunning or remarkable, so I've deducted a point for that, but when a tale is told as well as this it's not too bad a handicap. After reading "A Hurt Too Deep" I'm certainly inclined to check out more works from Ms Morgan.
