Meet Kathleen Morgan

Kathleen Morgan had filled a number of roles over the years, such as Army nurse, author, speaker, wife, mother, and grandmother. With a love for all things Scottish that works into her novels in the way of ideas from movies like Robb Roy, and Braveheart as well as books, Kathleen has taken her readers on journeys to distant times and far away places. She has won several awards for her work including Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice award and Career Achievement award, and The Literary Times award for Literary Excellence in the Field of Romantic Fiction, 2002 Rose Award for Best Inspirational Romance (for Embrace the Dawn), a finalist for both the Romance Writers of America’s RITA award, and the 2002 Dorothy Parker Awards of Excellence for Mainstream Fiction.

Kathleen’s first series is the Brides of Culdee Creek, a series following Abigail, Hannah, Claire, and Beth—four women who are either related or married to one of the MacKay men—the owners of Culdee Creek ranch. An interesting thing about this series is that Kathleen’s editor was hesitant to buy Woman of Grace, Hannah’s story. Not because Hannah was formerly a prostitute, but because of Devlin MacKay and the way he changed from what he was set up to be in Daughter of Joy. Her recent book is Embrace the Dawn, set in the Scottish Highlands in the late 1600s which has to do with the Glencoe Massacre. Kathleen has two upcoming books, Consuming Fire, the sequel to Embrace the Dawn, and All Good Gifts, in which Devra MacKay must decide which is more important to her Culdee Creek ranch or her career.

When asked what she hopes to accomplish through her writing, Kathleen says, “I'd like to tell an entertaining, can't put it down, engrossing story where the gospel shines through in a natural, non-preachy way. I want my readers to identify and care for my characters and their struggles, both their everyday life struggles as well as their spiritual struggles. And I want to touch the reader's hearts and inspire them and strengthen them on their journey to God…”

Kathleen and her husband live in Colorado; in her spare time she enjoys quilting and playing the Celtic harp. She is in the process of becoming a certified music practitioner, so she can play her harp in patient care settings such as hopice, hospitals and nursing homes.
