We had the good fortune of connecting with Shane Morgan and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Shane, why did you pursue a creative career?
Ever since I was a child, I was always doing something in the creative arts. Whether it be fashion designing, drawing, writing song lyrics, or graphic designing. The one thing that stood out above everything else was storytelling. I feel it is the one thing I am most passionate about over the rest. It’s an escape. A kind of thrill that is indescribable.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I think every writer differs in some way. We all have our own style of writing and how we present our stories. I love writing about love, whether contemporary romance, fantasy, or suspense. Writing relatable characters that fall in love and have issues is my way of connecting with readers and providing an exciting escape.
I am proud of how far I’ve come on my journey in self-publishing, and I look forward to climbing higher.
It hasn’t been easy, but I press on because I absolutely love to write and I cannot see myself doing anything else.
I’ve learned that there will be readers that won’t like my stories, just as much as there are readers who will enjoy them. I just have to focus on putting out work that I’m proud of and didn’t require compromising what I stand for.
I want people to know that I put my heart and soul into every work. Even though I write fiction, the emotions are my my own. Everything is genuine.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My friends are into sight-seeing like me. So I’d show them cool spots like the Cliff walk in Newport and other interesting sites. Then we’d go shopping and find great restaurants.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I definitely want to shoutout my family: husband, mom, dad, and siblings. Everyone has been so supportive and I don’t think I would have come so far without that.
