Morgan Chilson

I started reading at age 4 and have never been found without a book. They have been my lifeline when I'm stressed, my humor when I'm sorely in need of a laugh, and a much healthier addiction than drugs or alcohol! (Though my chocolate addiction is going pretty strong.) As a full-time freelance writer, I enjoy burying myself in the words of others, both as an escape from the real world and as an opportunity to see what other writers are doing. Since I work primarily as a journalist and non-fiction writer, I find the fiction world fascinating and fun. In between reading books and writing, I take care of my three young children and run crazed through my messy home, hoping insanely that an organizational fairy will drop by.
