Morgan resides in upstate New York while dreaming of traveling to ancient worlds. She’s a wandering soul that believes in creatures who go “bump” in the night. Morgan is a firm believer in catharsis through the pages of a book and can think of no better way to do that than implanting urban legends and taboo subjects into a world that coincides with reality. She also doesn’t bite, unless asked nicely.
Claire Hefner is well aware that winter is coming but hope springs eternal, so in rare moments of sunshine enjoys tending to her tulips and trimming her bushes. At night, when she’s not writing she can be found dreaming of Dexter and drinking wine with her guardian Si ... read more

Ann Gallagher is the slightly more civilized alter ego of L.A. Witt, Lauren Gallagher, and Lori A. Witt. So she tells herself, anyway. When she isn’t wreaking havoc on Spain with her husband and trusty two-headed Brahma bull, she writes romances just like her wilder counterparts, but without all the heat. She is also far too mature to get involved in the petty battle between L.A. and Lauren, but she’s seriously going to get even with Lori for a certain incident that shall not be discussed publicly.

Nacido en Valencia en la década de los ochenta, crecí en el seno de una familia que trabajó muy duro para que nunca me faltase de nada. Siendo el mayor de dos hermanos, rápidamente desarrollé una enorme inquietud por el arte, más concretamente por el dibujo y la escritura. Más tarde, en mi juventud, cambié la primera de mis pasiones por la fotografía, considerándola una forma más atractiva de crear e inmortalizar la belleza. Al finalizar mis estudios convertí el mundo de la imagen en mi medio de vida. Pero nunca dejé de lado la escritura, algo con lo que no pensaba poder ganarme el pan, pero que valoro tanto o más que mi trabajo.

Life is busy. I like to write (& read) but can't when there are chores to do. I'm not working for a living now, but the farm, volunteer work, and errands keep me running. I started writing when I retired in 2003 with a disability, which gave me the time and a bit of income, with no delusions of being discovered.
I get inspiration from memories of being a smart-mouthed young woman myself, and from people and places around me. I eavesdrop.
Every writer should have a purpose for their books, and mine is to entertain. My target readers are a mixed bag of ages, men & women. I think appreciation of small-town life is important, and one must be able to handle raunchy language & humor.
