Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Morgan Destera started writing at the age of seven and appeared as a featured reporter on a kid-produced TV show out of Columbus, Ohio. She later studied journalism at the Ohio State University and later became news editor of the college paper, The Lantern. After graduation, she worked as editor on several small weekly newspapers around Ohio. After moving to Michigan, she switched to public relations work at a civic organization. She currently resides in small town Ohio with her two dogs. This is her first novella.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I must be inspired to write. I am not one of those writers who can produce 8 pages a day or can produce on demand. I am also more of a novella or short story writer than a 50,000+-word novelist
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Stephen King, F. Scott Fitzgerald,
What are you working on now?
"Mediplex" is an ongoing serialization, the story of one family's journey through a sexual utopia. After a mutable disease reshapes society, the family seeks shelter at the Mediplex, hoping for relief and hoping their own oddities may help relieve others. There are only two rules in the Mediplex – consent is a must, and abuse is forbidden. How easy will it be for the adults to overcome the social mores they grew up with? And how kinky can the Admin really be?
The first chapter is available on Amazon ("Mediplex")
I am also working on Apoc Book Two
