Morgan Gallagher is in her late 40s, and should know better, about spending her writing life with vampires. However, she has no choice, as they refuse to go away and leave her alone.
Morgan has been writing since she was 12 years old, and turned her hand to many things, in order to earn her bread. As a mature student, she earned a first class honours degree in Film & English Studies from UEA, studied at Masters level in Film & Television at Warwick University, and undertaken research into teaching creativity as part of a Masters in Media Education at the British Film Institute. As part of her undergraduate degree, she took several units in creative writing at UEA, gaining 97% for one assignment, a department record. She is also a fully qualified Drama Teacher.
Currently caring full time for her severely disabled husband and raising her six year old son, she spends much of her time in volunteer and charity work, helping support mothers and babies in trouble, particularly those in need of breastfeeding support and advocacy. She has been involved in campaigns to stop child detention at Yarl’s Wood Detention Centre and campaigns for babies’ human rights. Her lactavist writings are well known and widely circulated and she talks at conferences and events, on both breastfeeding and Film & Television.
Severely dyslexic, none of this is easy. Why does she write? “I don’t have a choice. It just is. You may as well ask, why do I breathe?”
Morgan's debut vampire novel, Changeling, is scheduled for ebook release on April 10th 2011.

The East End of London has seen centuries of poverty, despair and death. For centuries its poor and dispossessed have struggled to survive. Crude hospitals such as the ill-famed Bethlehem Hospital became known as places of terror and insanity for the patients: where Bedlam reigned.
