About Me!


Hello! I'm Morgan! I write children's books--and I love astronomy and STEM! I'm a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators and The Planetary Society.

Back in the day, I worked as an aerospace engineer at NASA's Mission Control Center in Houston, TX. I later worked as a federal government attorney in Washington, DC.*

But before all of that, I was a kid who got into plenty of trouble--just like Lana!

Now I live in Decatur, GA, where parts of Lana's story take place. On any given day, you can find me hanging out and writing on Decatur Square or visiting one of the three observatories near my home.
