Guest Writer Wednesday: Marilyn Morris

Today at Sara Jay’s our guest author is Marilyn Morris, who is sharing about her supernatural trilogy, historical novels and much more!

Share a little bit about your writing style. What genres and types of heroes/heroines are you attracted to? What do you love to write about?

My writing style has been “eclectic.” I write supernatural mysteries; disaster/romance; and finally, historical/adventure. The supernatural mysteries are evidenced by my Sabbath Trilogy: Sabbath’s Gift, then Sabbath’s House, and I’m working on the sequel, Sabbath’s Village.  They all feature a mystical black cat, Sabbath, who was “once owned by a witch.” The disaster novel is Forces of Nature where Human Nature meets Mother Nature when a fully loaded fuel tanker from the nearby Air Force Base is thrown by a tornado into a crowded shopping mall.

A couple of my historical novels probably convinced me to follow my heart and continue to write historical fiction. My first historical was The Women of Camp Sobingo, a WWII and Cold War era story of four women who meet aboard a ship headed for Korea, in 1945. They are to join their army officer husbands with the US Occupation Forces in a compound outside Seoul, where they spend their hours playing bridge and forming a bond that will change all their lives forever. One woman chooses to end her life there. At a reunion 25 years later, secrets and sorrows are at last revealed.

My second historical novel is The Unexplored Heart, which focuses on a young Victorian-era woman, Vanessa, who is robbed of her inheritance by her treacherous stepfather. She is given enough funding to attend a secretarial school and learns shorthand. She is hired by Harrison Courtland, a famed explorer, to transcribe his notes concerning his treks, including the Himalayan exploration where his headstrong wife is lost while crossing a rope bridge over an icy torrent. So it is assumed. Yet she is found battered but alive, by the monarch of a lush and wealthy kingdom. This novel is written in three sections: Vanni’s early life and her employment; Book Two: Lisanne Courtland’s adaptation to her new life even though she is mute and suffers from amnesia. The Third Book tells of Lisanne’s escape from Rimar and its king and her return to Cornwall.

I’ve always had an interest in exploring and archaeology, so much so that I am presently writing a sequel to The Unexplored Heart,  After Camelot: Esther’s Quest.  The minute I typed The End, one of the minor characters stormed into my office, settled herself in my guest chair and demanded I feature her in “my own book.” And so she shall have it.

Haunted by her desires and craving another threesome, Rhea knows it can’t happen. Jeremy is a mage. Colm is a vampire. The men tolerate each other because they’re under orders to cooperate. Without another spell to force them, they would never agree to sharing Rhea again.

Guest Writer Wednesday: Megan Slayer

SweetAndWildFinalToday we were going to have the ever-talented and prolific Megan Slayer with us again, and she was going to share some information about her book Sweet and Wild… But Callum from the book had other ideas! We are interviewing Callum instead, folks, so sit back and enjoy!


CD: I’m sitting here with Sara Jay, apparently doing an interview. I should tell you a little bit about me. My name is Callum Donaughue and I’m in the record business. Sounds crazy with everyone listening to digital music, but there is still a call for CDs and records. I’m on the scouting team. I look for new talent and help get them signed to the Decibel Records.

Thanks for having me here Sara Jay. Always nice to talk about the business.

SJ: You’re a shifter. Which kind of shifter are you?

CD: Oh, you wanted to know about that. I’m a wolf shifter. The wolf isn’t as dominant in me as some shifters, but he’s very much there. The moment I saw Sarah, I knew I had to have her for my own.

SJ: You’ve got a thing for women named Sara?

CD: I do. My Sarah works at a beading store and tells me more than I ever wanted to know about stringing beads together. Apparently there is even beading fan fiction. I never knew about that and can’t wrap my head around it. But yes, she’s my soul mate.

SJ: When did you know you wanted her? Did the wolf let you know?

CD: I made the mistake of doubting my wolf. I knew I shouldn’t, but I had a job to do and love didn’t  factor into that equation. My wolf knew right away she belonged to us. If he’d have had his way, he’d have humped her leg right then and there. Thankfully I kept him in check.

SJ: Has there ever been a time when the wolf totally took over?

CD: When she’s in trouble. My wolf and I can’t handle seeing Sarah upset or hurting. I’ll risk life and limb to protect her. So will he. The other time was when I claimed her, but that’s another story. Continue reading “Guest Writer Wednesday: Megan Slayer”
