Morgen Leigh began fabricating stories when she was three years old and putting her dark flights of fancy down on paper when she was six. A voracious reader as a youngster, Morgen spent many hours scaring the hell out of friends and family and hanging out with the wood elves in her expansive backyard. At the impressionable age of 11 she read "Sybil" and promptly struck out on a quest to learn everything there was to know about the human psyche, with an ever-deepening interest in personality disorders, parapsychology, and Jungian theory.
"What intrigues me most is the capacity of the human mind to triumph over adversity and intense trauma--the capability to heal emotional and psychological wounds. Those are the stories I want to hear...those are the stories I want to tell."
