Hello! My name is Morgan.
I’m an American lady living in Oxford, England. It is very fancy here.
Before moving to the UK in 2016 with my husband, I spent nine years as an English language arts teacher and curriculum developer in Shanghai, China, where I taught children between 8 and 12 years old. For this reason, my picture books mainly cater to upper primary readers.
I’m a self-taught illustrator and am admittedly still working on how to work with color, which I don’t like very much. I’m basically trying to teach myself how to be Jon Klassen, so if you’re looking for someone who is all things bright and sugar-sweet, I’m not your unicorn.
I’m not married to illustrating my own stories, although that is the eventual goal. Another goal is to write a story about a rock that Pixar turns into a movie starring The Rock.
If you like representing quirky picture books for older youngsters (and their parents), I’d love to chat.
