Bio

Short Version

Katy Morgan is an indie fantasy author and fiction editor with an eye for detail and a heart for supporting the creative community. When she’s not writing or editing, she can be found cross-stitching something sassy, daydreaming about hedgehogs, or drinking far too many mochas, usually all at once.

 

Longer Version

Katy Morgan has been an author ever since the fateful day she learned to write her name. (Before that, she had to dictate all her stories to her assistants, a.k.a. adults, to transcribe for her.) Nowadays she’s an indie fantasy author who harnesses mad Trickster energy to produce character-driven novels about snarky, magical people doing snarky, magical things. While her stories have a dark side, they ultimately reflect the triumph of the human spirit–and include a little romance to boot.

In addition to making up things about people who don’t exist, Katy also provides editing services to other authors and runs an indie book review blog.

About the Compound Series

The Compound Series is an adult contemporary fantasy/paranormal suspense trilogy with a dash of LGBTQ+ romance. Dark Empathy, the first book in the series, was released in 2018. The second book, Fail-Safe, is scheduled for release in 2021.

Dark Empathy follows Bastian Lucas, a misanthropic empath who escapes a shady military compound only to be dragged back to help find a serial killer who shouldn’t exist–and who has powers very similar to Bastian’s. Over the course of the investigation, Bastian not only uncovers the sinister dealings of his mentor, Major Valentine, but also very inconveniently finds himself falling for Captain Henry Mortimer, the compound officer assigned to keep an eye on him…and who has a secret power of his own.
