Julie's Book Review would like to introduce Elizabeth Morgan. Welcome to the site. We are all excited to meet and learn more about you.
Let's start with . . . Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Of course I can. Hey there, I’m Elizabeth Morgan. I live in the UK and I have been writing on and off since childhood and I have been a published author for the last two years.
I’m afraid I don’t lead a very exciting life, if I’m not writing I’m working a shift at my day job, or I’m tidying the house or garden, or passed out with a book or in front of the TV, or I am playing the sims 3.
What genre's do you write? If more than one do you have a favorite?
At the present moment I tend to write contemporary/paranormal romances with all sorts of heat levels. I tend to lean toward the paranormal genre as I’ve had an interest in the supernatural from a very young age. Plus, I believe there is a lot of room to play within this particular genre and I like to play. J
What can we expect from your books? Action, sex, adventure, romance?
All of the above, plus humour and lots of sarcasm, swearing, tension, and chemistry.
Do you have a favorite book or character of yours that is a favorite? Why?
Cranberry Blood (Book 1 in The Blood Series) still remains to be my favourite book a) because it’s my baby the first book I wrote and then rewrote, b) because it’s the first series I planned containing the two creatures I grew up loving, Werewolves and Vampires, and c) because it has some really fab characters. I wouldn’t say I have a character that reins over the rest, but I do have a soft spot for Brendan. <3
Can you tell us anything on your newest release?
Creak is an erotic ménage thriller, which is set in a remote motel in the small town Silver Creek in Kansas. It’s the first ménage and the first thriller I have written, and I guess you can say it was an experiment of sorts. I like to watch horrors/thrillers and decided to give the genre a go. I’m happy with the way the book turned out, and I completely adore my three leading characters, especially Kacey, foul-mouthed charmer he is.
(An erotic thriller)
“What happens in Silver Creek, stays in Silver Creek."
After spending the summer as a recluse due to a bad break-up, Nicole Saunders agrees to go to The Heat Wave Festival with her best friends, Kacey and Tyler.
Along with three other friends they plan to take a short-cut through the small town of Silver Creek; the last thing any of them expected was to become lost and end up pulling in to a motel for the night.
The Creek Motel is isolated and the last place Nicole wants to be, especially after meeting the glacial owner, but her discomfort is soon forgot as she finally gives in to her feelings and asks Kacey and Tyler to spend the night with her.
A decision she quickly regrets when she discovers that their friend has mysteriously disappeared from her locked room in the middle of the night. Worried, Nicole presumes the worst, but quickly discovers that Jayne's disappearance is more disturbing than any of them could have guessed.

Friday, September 12th, 2014
We had lost the sun about two hours ago, the helpful lights of the other cars and the freeway about an hour after that.
We had all agreed to cut through the small town of Silver Creek in order to knock an hour off our journey—a decision I was beginning to regret.
My face had been practically glued to the window for the last half an hour as I tried to figure out where the night sky ended and the ground began. It was pitch black out there. Not the kind of night painted in a mixture of dark hues with the added color jumping out once in a while. This was total and complete darkness, the type that seemed to move with us. The half moon and clear blanket of stars above had become our only indication that we hadn't just driven into a tunnel with no end.
The headlights of Kacey's green camper van continued to guide us along the narrow road and further toward Silver Creek, which I still wasn't sure if we had arrived in or not.
In the dim orange glow of the overhead light, I turned to look at Kacey. The blood had drained from his knuckles due to the grip he had on the steering wheel, and his plump lips were set in a firm line. He was pissed. I would even say livid. Which meant only one thing, we had gotten lost.
"Kay?" I said softly. "You might as well pull over."
His eyes narrowed to slits. His focus stuck to the ongoing road. "No."
"It’s pitch black. There are no lights anywhere. No sign of life. Pull over, and let's all spend the night in the van. We can set off early tomorrow, when we can actually see, and figure out where the hell we are exactly."
He may have been a mechanic, but puncturing a tire or crashing into a tree was the last thing any of us needed.
"There's a Motel."
I looked at the surrounding darkness with wide eyes. "I don't see one."
He turned the GPS we had attached to the dashboard toward me, and pointed at a small blue square. "It should be here somewhere."
I stared at the small screen and then back out the front window. Who the hell would put a motel out here? Then again, I suppose if it’s a small trade town, and people did cut through like we’re doing….
"There's the fucker." Kacey declared and put his foot on the gas.
The van jolted as we went over a bump in the road, and a groan came from the back. "What the hell, Kay?" I turned to see Tyler rubbing the back of his head, and looking at us through hooded lids. "Are we there yet?"
I shook my head. "We're lost."
"We're not lost." Kacey stated sharply. "I came down the right route. It's just fucking taking forever because I have to go at a tortoise pace because some stupid asshole didn't think about putting up lights on this shitty back road."
Tyler yawned. "So, we're lost?"
Kacey growled. "We'll stop here and set off in the morning."
I looked back out at the road and watched the speck of light that had suddenly emerged from nowhere, growing bigger and bigger, and finally forming in to a readable size and shape.
The tall sign to the "Creek Motel" flickered in the on-going darkness. The faulty light to the isolated establishment appeared to be the only indication that actual people lived in the area. After an hour of nothing but darkness, the sight caused a pop of relief to tickle my stomach.
Kacey slowed and turned the van in to the small parking lot.
Apart from the two cars sitting along the front of the L-shaped building, the only other sign that the motel operated came from the dull light seeping through the curtains of a few rooms. The van filled with soft groans as Tyler woke up the others and Kacey maneuvered into a free space.
"Are you kidding me?" Disgust leaked in to Jayne's sleep-filled voice.
Kacey scrubbed his hands down his face. "What did you expect, the Hilton?"
"I expected to be in a packed parking lot with tons of people, and lights and loud music." She yawned. "Where are we?"
He cut the engine, and slid out of his seatbelt. "We're stopping here for the night."
"Where is here?"
"We're in Silver Creek."
"Yeah, which is just another name for we're in the middle of fucking nowhere."
Kacey twisted in his seat. "Look, it's too dark. So we're stopping here. We'll set off in the morning and be at the festival in no time. Deal with it."
Dry laughter scraped her throat. "You're so grumpy. Jesus. It's not my fault we had to set off at half past five. We should have set off tomorrow morning."
Kacey popped his jaw, and slid a look at me. "I'll go get us signed in, shall I?"
"I'll come with you." I pushed the door open, and climbed out of the van.
I pulled my jacket tightly around me as we made our way across the rough gravel ground toward the entrance. In the silence, I could hear each small gust of wind whipping around the solitary building.
I followed Kacey through the open doorway in to the dingy, snug reception, which had bare brick walls with old photographs lining them and a heavily worn and scratched wooden floor. Kacey hit the small brass bell sitting on the reception desk and we both stood looking at the closed office door.
Are you working on anything new? when will it be out and can you give us any details....hints?
I recently finished a short contemporary erotic story, “Truth or Dare?” It’s a light plot and it’s just fun, and sexy. It is currently in submission along with a co-authored new adult futuristic romance, “Watermaker” (Book 1 in the Black Water Trilogy.)
Otherwise I am working on a new dark paranormal erotic story, “Let Me In.” At the moment I plan for it to be a novella, but there is a chance it could grow, or turn into a duology or a trilogy. The characters are holding information hostage at the moment so we shall wait and see what happens, but I like where it’s going and I am digging the devilish lead. I hope to have it finished and submitted by summer.
What kind of advice would you give new authors or people who are trying to get published?
Love your stories. Believe in them. Others will love and believe in them too. Just keep going. Keep writing. Keep trying and don’t stop until you have told every story you’re supposed to.
Let’s find out a little more ....How about some FUN stuff!!
I like fun stuff J
Favorite place to travel?
I haven’t really travelled, at least not outside of the UK. The only place I’ve ever been is Rome, Italy, and to be honest I would like to go back to Italy and visit Sicily and Venice. So, I plan to do that one day.
Tough question, I kinda love food. I’m not ashamed to say it. As for a favourite one I think I’m going to have to go with a product, which would be cheese, because it goes with anything; pasta, pizza, cheese burgers . . . all of which are foods I enjoy very much.
Favorite past time?
At the moment I am hacking away at my garden – when we have decent weather, which we’re not having at the moment in the UK – that’s become a past time, not a favourite one, though. Ha. Otherwise, I like to watch movie, certain TV programmes, read and play the sims 3.
I have read a lot of stories and loved a lot of them, but The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook always springs to mind when I’m asked what my fave book is. I just found it fabulous. The world building, the history, the description, the plot and Rhys . . . *fans self* I love the series. It’s an amazing series. Steampunk in all its awesomeness.
Dianna Hardy is an awesome writer. She has just released the second book in her Eye of the Storm Series, “Cry of the Wolf” . . . This series is a must read for any lovers of Werewolf fiction. She has taken the stereotype and twisted it into something new and smoking hot.
She has a wonderful voice and way of describing scenes etc and I love her views on the supernatural, and how she laces mythology and magic into her stories.
Yeah, I have two cats – brothers – Phantom and MJ. Names because my fave musical is Phantom of the Opera, and I have adored Michael Jackson’s music since I was 6. My boys were actually born on the day he passed away.
Finally is there any special places we can find you and your books?
