Peter Morgan


I can remember creating my own stories from those that I either read or was told as a child. I would sit for hours letting my imagination run wild, nothing better than creating an exciting world from your imagination. That pretty much continued on through my life, im a dreamer and im proud of it. I have a dark sense of humor and coupled with that I am fascinated with the macabre. I enjoy writing about ghosts and ghouls, all those things that terrified me as a child I now find excites me and completely draws me in. Welcome To Black Mountain was an idea I had for a few years, I wanted it to be on an Island that for some reason (or there would always be a reason at the time) that no one could leave. Filled with supernatural entities disguised as ordinary humans. But some of those entities having very human traits.The island lore and history Ive really been working on because I want to build something incredible. I hope to build Black Mountain into much more than just an ordinary book or website, I want to build a community where we can interact, discuss, debate. I want to create a platform for those that dont have one, or dont know where to begin. I hope you enjoy my stories, I welcome you to Black Mountain. I sincerely hope you get lost in its darkness and dont want to leave.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I can remember writing my first story around the age of six. My school teacher was reading to the class and in my mind I wanted the story to go another way, so when I arrived home that afternoon I wrote my own version.
Who are your favorite authors?
I grew up reading R.L Stine's Fear Street and Goosebumps series and then moved onto Stephen King and Dean R Koontz.
