Meet the Author

Roh Morgon tends to keep her head in the clouds, whether they're clouds of her own making or those of others. When she does touch ground, she brings a little fantasy with her and puts it on the page for readers to enjoy.

Roh's childhood fascination with books eventually led to an interest in costuming and renfaires, where she learned how to handle swords, knives, and bows. She's hitchhiked across the country, ridden on the backs of Harleys, and driven a train.

Roh currently shares her California home in the Sierra Nevada foothills with three mustang horses, two crazy herding dogs, and a very patient husband who frequently reminds her of the need to eat and sleep. She writes urban and dark fantasies for middle grade, young adult, and adult readers.

    MOVE OVER ANNE RICE

    MOVE OVER ANNE RICE If you think there is nothing new, fresh and original in vampire fiction, you haven’t read Watcher: Book 1 of the Chosen, the debut novel by Roh Morgon. I am not particularly a fan of traditional vampire stories, but I found this incredible book more engrossing than anything I have read in the genre in years. The reasons are not only the suspenseful and well written tale, but its potent underlying themes. Sunny Martin is attacked and ravaged by an inhuman being who leaves her clinging to life and with an ravenous thirst for blood. In her half-human state, she determines that, for her beloved seventeen-year-old daughter’s sake, she must allow the girl to believe her mother is dead. Yet Sunny’s love for her child and her loneliness drives Sunny to stalk her daughter, hungry for whatever glimpses of her she can get. Five years later, when Sunny’s granddaughter is born, the sight of the child’s sweet face intensifies Sunny’s longing, and the separation from her family becomes almost more than she can bear. Sunny flees the state, hoping to begin her life anew. She meets Nicolas, leader of a secret society, whose love for her may be able to fill the void in her heart, yet to bond with him, she must make the Change that would destroy the part of herself that remains human and give up her daughter and grandchild forever. I loved this book, not only because I was able to identify immediately with the heroine, but because the premise is so undeniably true: Love does not always conquer all, and true happiness cannot be found unless one is true to him or her self. Watcher: Book 1 of the Chosen is a suspenseful story told with such skill I wanted to consume it in a single read. This is a level of skill and professionalism seldom found in first novels, and I predict great things ahead for this writer. Move over Anne Rice, a new “Queen of the Damned” is born. --Shannon Riley

    My first Vampire read was Christoper Pike's "Last Vampire&q

    My first Vampire read was Christoper Pike's "Last Vampire" series and since then I have read the good, the bad and first chapter snoozers. When I picked up "Watcher" I anticipated having something traditionally romantic that I could read over my Winter Break.

    Within five minutes I realized that "Watcher" was not a traditional vampire story, nor was I going to sleep that night. As the sun rose the next morning, I had cried, laughed, loved, hunted and almost lost my innocence/humanity through the seduction of love...following the ever powerful female lead-Sunny through three short months of her life. The story turned and twisted, bringing a new world, developing an old history and introducing characters to love, hate and crave more of....

    Since reading "Watcher", I have read two other "newer" and Critically Acclaimed vampire stories. I have found them tedious, boring, and a chore to read...and all I can think about is, Where and What is Sunny doing now?

    Thank you Roh Morgon for creating such a rich world and true escape from our daily grind!

    Waiting for more of the Sunny Saga...
