There's a name for this... I never knew there was a name for my aesthetic until my sister (an interior designer) said to me once, "You're such a gothic maximalist." I had never heard the term maximalist. Minimalist? Yes, all the time. It's all the rage these days. But I suppose much like most extroverts assume introverts are just one social event from being converted (we're not), I think mainstream designers assume everyone is a minimalist. Hint: we're not. I
One thing I get asked a lot is, "Where did you get the idea for your books?" I think somewhere back in the annals of history (read: one of the past acknowledgments) I mentioned that these books started in my brain when I was a kid. That is absolutely true. I remember lying in the clover patch in my backyard next to my dog, looking up at the sky and imagining a fantastical world beyond ours. I wondered if I
If you've sniffed around my website, you may have noticed a quiet little change this summer. Or maybe you've shopped on Amazon and wondered where book 6 went. It's still for sale, never fear. But I've made a change to the series to make it more clear what's going on. When I released book 6 last year, a lot of you were confused why it wasn't Ferryl and Adelaide's story. While I thought I had explained that the book would
My latest cover is live on YouTube. Whenever I listen to this song I'm immediately transported to my childhood, dancing on my father's toes in the formal dining room in front of our massive '80s stereo, listening to Motown on his collection of 45s. Aside from the fact that this is an incredible song, it also happens to be quite possibly the world's most perfect. So here's my love letter to those days. Enjoy!

As many of you know, I always make a playlist for the book I'm writing. It's a way of inspiring me to write certain scenes, to get me in the mode, and to connect more deeply with each character and their respective journeys. As a musician, I suppose it was inevitable that music would play an integral role in my writing. So today, I wanted to share with you the playlist I listened to ad nauseam during the writing
Not just the stuff of fiction. Many of you know that my latest book, The Stag at Hand, is a story of a woman trapped in sexual slavery. “I think that you like to hide your fear as long as possible. That you like to square your shoulders and lift your chin and pretend that you are strong. That you are someone worth something.” ~From The Stag at Hand by Morgan G Farris But the truth is, slavery is not
Friends, I am so excited to share with you the 6th book in my series, which is the start of Volume II of The Chalam Færytales: The Stag at Hand. Here is the blurb: Morgan G Farris’s acclaimed series continues with The Stag at Hand, the sixth book in The Chalam Færytales: the story of unlikely allies Miriam and Ezra as they seek to uncover the mystery of the White Stag in a Victorian fantasy world of magic, peril, and devastating romance.

So without further ado, I present: The Stag at Hand, Prologue One Thousand and One Years after the Great War Bound by the sea For all eternity Leviathan awaits her destiny.
I am so excited to invite you to something we're doing THIS SUNDAY (December 12, 2021) at my home campus. We're calling it One Big Family Christmas Night of Worship. We'll have carols, hot chocolate, carriage rides, and the big guy himself (that's Santa, folks) just might make an appearance. In other words, you're not going to want to miss it! THIS IS A FREE EVENT. All ages are welcome and you don't have to be a StoneWater member (or
I didn't want to do this. Truly. I had every intention of releasing Book VI this October. Well, as you can see, it's December and you still don't have the book in your hands. There are several reasons for the delay, but the primary reason has to do with losing my Facebook account entirely (read this post for the details of that saga), which basically sent my entire marketing strategy into a tailspin. Couple that with the holiday season and...
I am asking for your help. You may have noticed that on Facebook there has been radio silence from me for a few weeks. There’s a reason for that… My Facebook ad account was hacked and I had thousands of dollars stolen. I plan to share the details of this nightmare more in the future on YouTube and Instagram, but needless to say, this has put a HUGE damper on my plans to release the 6th book in my
