Interview with Morgan Grey

Describe your desk
My desk is a tangle of personal hygiene products, medicines, and scribbled notes written the night before. Old notepads with antiquated and discarded ideas intermingle with their newer counterparts. I feel that the result of this desk environment is that old ideas combine with new ones. In short, my desk is a source of my inspiration.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the United States, but I was born in Latin America. As such, I have incorporated much of the descriptiveness that I use in Spanish and translate it into my English writing. The result is a much more rich and fuller experience for the reader as they can actually feel like live witnesses of the story.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing in first grade. I wrote a mind control story about an evil wizard controlling the local princess. In most stories, the knight/hero/archetypal jag-off comes in the nick of time and saves her. Not in my story. I had the wizard defeat the hero and marry the princess. The story was in comic book format with illustrations and writing done entirely by me.
What is your writing process?
My writing process is akin to that of Hunter S. Thompson. Constant exposure to pornography mixed with an altered mind and a willingness to tell a great story. I write my stories in a manic function by writing large sections at a whim. Then, the next day, I edit and mend the plot holes. But firstly, before any of this, I always create the cover. I need to have an image in my mind before I can create a leading woman for my stories.
When was your first instance of interest in hypnosis/mind control?
The first time I became interested in hypnosis and mind control was when I watched Teen Titans. The Mad Mod episodes were frankly some of the best in the whole series. I loved watching Starfire with spiral eyes and Beastboy having no hypnotic resistance whatsoever.
How do you approach cover design?
Cover design always comes first. I take cover design as another form of creating the story. I always believe that the cover should reflect a key scene in the book itself. It is a snapshot in time for the reader to think about seeing how everything pans out in the story.
What are your two favorite book serieses, and why?
Molly Moon series - These books are what got me into inductions when I read it in middle school. I really enjoyed a series where the heroine and the villains used hypnosis. There were many creative inductions throughout the books which keep the hypnotic theme alive.

Artemis Fowl series - Artemis Fowl is a mix of real world adventure and magic. I loved that they had mind control play a major role in the story. Most of the magical characters were capable of mesmerizing humans into obeying their commands and forgetting certain events. Every book in the series has at least one MAJOR instance of mind control in it.
What do you read for pleasure?
Hypnotic erotica and history textbooks.
