A Conversation with Author Morgan Brice

Giveaway Ends 8/10

What does it mean to you to be called an author?

A: It can mean different things to different people. Anyone who writes is an author—publication isn’t necessary. Some people write for their own enjoyment and never show anyone. Others write for a small circle, or (like in fan fiction) for an audience without commercial publication. And some people sell their stories for a living. Those are all being an author. if you create stories and write them down, you’re an author. The rest just depends on what you want from your writing, which can shift over time.

Can you tell us a bit about the story and its main characters?

A: In Again, we have a lynx shifter, pursued by a cryptid trophy hunter. A wolf shifter is desperate to rescue a lover who’s not just his fated mate—but his one true pairing across past lives. And a love that transcends time.

What inspired the idea for your book?

A: It’s part of my Fox Hollow series, which is about a town in the Adirondacks that is a haven for misfit shifters and psychics. I love the idea of fated mates, but I wanted to take it farther and think about ‘one true pairing’—two souls who find each other in one life after another.

Tell us about a favorite character from the book.

A: I love all my characters! This was fun because it’s a ‘mixed’ relationship—a feline/canine shifter love story. So there’s some cat/dog snark involved from their shifter sides!

Do you have any “side stories” about any of the characters? 

A: The Fox Hollow books all overlap, so characters show up in other books. Both main characters—Drew and Noah—show up in Huntsman, the first book in the zodiac series.

What are you working on in the near future?

A: I’m working on Sins of the Fathers, which is the second book in my Kings of the Mountain MM romance series.

Have you always wanted to be an author?

A: I decided I wanted to be a writer when I was 14, so pretty much!

How do you interact with your readers?

A: I have my Worlds of Morgan Brice reader group on Facebook, where I post photos, videos from the book locations, Ask Me Anything days, guest author parties, and lots of other fun stuff. I do a weekly Work In Progress Wednesday on Instagram @MorganBriceAuthor where I read a snippet from what I’m writing. On TikTok @MorganBriceAuthor, I do fun videos about my books, where I travel, our backyard garden, and Supernatural! I also do several in-person conventions each year, and am on a lot of Zoom panels about MM romance!

Aside from writing or reading, what are your hobbies or interests?

A: I like to travel. We’ve also been watching a lot of Korean paranormal dramas, and I’m loving those. Writing doesn’t leave me a lot of free time!

The fast, furry, and furious! A lynx shifter, pursued by a cryptid trophy hunter. A wolf shifter desperate to rescue a lover who’s not just his fated mate—but his one true pairing across past lives. And a love that transcends time.

Lynx shifter Noah Wilson narrowly escaped being captured by the Huntsman. While recuperating in Fox Hollow, he meets his fated mate, wolf shifter Drew Lowe.

Noah has to return to Canada to finish filming his TV projects, so he and Drew visit when they can and come up with creative solutions to their long-distance relationship. Noah and Drew are sure they’re meant for each other and start making plans.

Drew’s dreams make him wonder if he and Noah are more than fated mates—could they be a true pairing, destined to find each other lifetime after lifetime?

Then Noah accidentally records a murder, and the killer is on his trail. Can he elude a master tracker and reach the safety of Fox Hollow, or will he and Drew have to wait to find happiness in another life?

Again is a thrill-packed MM shifter romance adventure full of sexy shifters, hurt/comfort, one true pairing, reincarnation, sincere psychics, hunky mechanics, first responders, a sexy wildlife photographer, found family, and fated mates.

Excerpt

“I wish you could see this view in person—except for how cold it is.” Noah snapped a photo that didn’t do the colors of dawn justice, and sent it with his text to Drew.

He waited for a reply and realized Drew probably wasn’t awake yet. No one in their right mind is up at this hour.

He’d made the best of the cramped hotel room, knowing from experience to bring an extra blanket, good pillow, books, and power strips. Hotels never had enough outlets to charge his cameras. Fortunately, travel wasn’t a constant, but staying overnight to get the right light or have time to set up cameras happened fairly often.

Will that be a problem with Drew? Will he resent my photography? It’s a demanding job.

Noah cleaned his lenses and checked his batteries as he packed his day bag. Travel made it easy to find overnight company without entanglement, and he’d long ago grown tired of waking up alone. He’d had a serious relationship back in film school, which fizzled after graduation. There were a few boyfriends who lasted more than a month or two, but his irregular hours always ended up being more than anyone wanted to deal with for long.

Can it be different with Drew? We felt such an immediate bond—I’ve never had a connection like that with anyone. It’s like we’ve known each other forever.

“Of course. We’re fated mates,” his lynx reminded him, as if Noah could forget.

He smiled, thinking of their conversation that ended only a few hours ago. It wasn’t just the sex—although that was combustible in a way Noah had never experienced before. Everything took on a different light when it involved Drew. Talking about the trivial activities of the day wasn’t boring. Sharing a movie or even reading the same book and talking about their reactions now felt satisfying and fun.

I’m a Cancer—we’re protective and defend our family. Except I don’t really have any.

Noah didn’t have many living relatives. His father had vanished when he was young, and his mother died two years ago from a bad heart. He had a brother and sister, but they drifted apart, and Noah hadn’t heard from them in years. He wasn’t sure he even had valid addresses for them.

Drew is my mate. He’s my family now. And he has Russ and Liam and their friends. A pack. Someday, they’ll be my pack.

Clowder, his lynx sniffed. Lynxes have a clowder, not a pack.

Sounds like soup.

Clowder is not chowder, silly human. But we could vote to let Drew be an honorary lynx and join.

Vote? Who—you and me?

We are the only ones in our clowder now. It would be nice to add our mate—even if he is a dog.

Wolf.

Canine.

I’ve fallen hard. And it should scare me. But it doesn’t. When I worry that he might not feel the same, I can’t breathe
