Author Interview – Scott Morgan

Who is your favorite author and why? Brian Hodge because he is the only writer who makes me think “Damn, I really wish I’d written that!” every time I read something of his.

Are there any new authors that have sparked your interest and why? Yes, Julie Frayn, who started as a client (I edited her first two novels) and has become an actual friend. She’s just a dynamite writer. She has an insight into people and emotions that you can’t learn or teach.

What contributes to making a writer successful? Patience, perseverance, thick skin, and an understanding of what makes people tick. Also, in this day and age, a strong business sense.

Do you have any advice for writers? Yes, get over yourself. You’re nothing special, you’re a writer, like everyone else. So get to work like the rest of America.

What do you do to unwind and relax? Text-Twist.

What dreams have been realized as a result of your writing? I got to ride in a WWI-era biplane when I was a reporter. Also got to have a dugout conversation with a Cy Young winner (that was Sparky Lyle).

What is your favorite quality about yourself? I have almost no external ego. My self-image is not affected for better or worse based on what anyone thinks of me. That doesn’t mean I want to hear about it, it just means people have no real effect on my sense of identity.
