I can't begin to tell you what a blessing it's been to work with the wonderful authors involved in the Fall Into Romance collection. I'm going to be chatting with one of these amazing people each week leading up to the release of Fall Into Romance. I hope you enjoy these interviews as much as I have!
Chatting with Kit Morgan
Lessons in Romance
Thanks for joining me, Kit! I absolutely loved your story. Sir Lancelot and Merlin are awesome, and I know the readers will love them, too.
Melanie: Romance, Oregon is a beautiful place with a small-town atmosphere and big personalities. If you could visit Romance yourself, what one shop or person would you want to make sure was on your itinerary?
Kit: For me I’d like to visit Pages of Romance. Why? Because I’m a bibliophile! Hey, it’s a bookstore! I’d also like to meet Brent Todd and tell him about my little sister who was also bringing home stray animals all the time and if, say, this was not a fictional world, she’d have ended up working there!
Melanie: Animals are a big part of the stories that make up our Fall Into Romance compilation. Tell us a little about the critters in your novella.
Kit: Golly, what can I say about Sir Lancelot and Merlin? Other than they’re a rooster and a tortoise? But growing up we did have chickens and turtles, which is why I picked those two particular animals. (Even though technically Merlin is a tortoise.) Again, my sister, had the turtles, (not to mention a baby alligator) while our mother had her chickens. Marijo would let the turtles out into the yard and the chickens would occasionally come through, hang out for a while, and then wander elsewhere. For the record, chickens aren’t particularly interested in turtles. Probably because they can’t eat them, and vice versa.
Melanie: Which of the characters in your story do you relate to the most? Why is that?
Kit: I’d have to say Jenny, the heroine. There was a time I knew nothing about dating and sought books on the subject. In fact, relationships fascinated me so much I became a certified Relationship Coach.
Melanie: What was your favorite part about writing your novella?
Kit: The fact I was writing a contemporary romance. I write western historical romance for the most part and this was my second contemporary.
Melanie: If you had to describe the town of Romance with one word, what would it be?
Melanie: Which fall holiday do you look forward to more: Halloween or Thanksgiving?
Kit: Definitely Thanksgiving. For one, I love to cook. Two, no one can find us on Halloween. We’ve had our house for fifty years (family home) and only got one trick or treater, and that’s only because they were lost.
Melanie: There are a lot of wonderful pumpkin-flavored treats at the Fall Festival in Romance. Do you like pumpkin? If so, what’s your favorite pumpkin-flavored food?
Kit: Pumpkin Cookies!
Melanie: What state do you live in? What’s the weather like there in the fall?
Kit: I live in Oregon! In fact, I’ve been to the town Romance is patterned after! I know it. For those who have never been here, fall is a great time of year (until it starts raining and the water doesn’t shut off until sometime in late June). I’m in the infamous Willamette Valley which is beautiful in the fall. Once fall officially starts on the calendar though, it can start to get nippy out. But I do love the smells of fall, that sharp tang in the air, the warmer afternoons and chilly nights. Where’s my pumpkin cookie recipe?

If she hadn’t gone to the Finding Forever Rescue Shelter’s annual fall festival, she wouldn’t be in this mess! If only she wasn’t so romantically impaired, she might be able to get out of it.
