Interview with Morgan Sheppard

What are you working on next?
I am working on book 2 in the Wraidd Elfennol series, called Of Land and Sky. This book features some of the same characters from Water Weaver, but also a host of new ones.
Who are your favorite authors?
I would have to answer with Anne McCaffrey as my all-time favourite. It was her Dragons of Pern series that sparked my love of Fantasy.

I also love reading anything by Mercedes Lackey, Terry Brooks, David and Leigh Eddings, plus many more.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My children - they really don't give me a choice lol
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I read a lot! I also cross-stitch, but not very often. Mainly my time is taken up with writing and looking after my children.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
From friends' recommendations, from social media posts I see, or if I am just browsing and the book cover catches my eye.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do - it was a short story about a candle in a window. I don't think it was very good!
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I can remember reading was DragonFlight by Anne McCaffrey. She awoke my love of Fantasy and Dragons, and gave me a world to escape to.
How do you approach cover design?
I have a vague idea of what I want, given the story. Then it gets thrashed out between me and the cover designer.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read Fantasy and Paranormal for pleasure. I am a big romantic so most of the books I read have that in common.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I currently have a Kindle Paperwhite. That way I can read in bed without disturbing my husband.
