Morgan St. James - Author

This video is a little old but I decided to post it on my website because it  gives you lots of my background and allows you to see my speaking style.

And yes, that's me back in the days when I was a blonde.  Since this video was made, I have written and published many more books,and though co-authoring INCEST, MURDER AND A MIRACLE and NO MORE CRYING ANGELS,  I've become an advocate for stopping domestic abuse.

As a former interior designer, I spent many years designing interiors for model homes, celebrities, restaurants and offices. 
My writing career was launched when Designer’s West Magazine approached my partner and me during the time we owned an interior design studio in California and asked us to write an article.

I discovered I loved writing. The article was so well-received, I wrote many more published “how to” articles for designers. From there, my topics expanded to diverse subjects. I live in Las Vegas, with Dylan the Dog who rules the household. I am on the Board of Writers of Southern Nevada, and belong to multiple writers' groups . After the Sisters in Crime Southern Nevada chapter was closed down, I suffered from "newsletter writer's withdrawal." I started the "Writer's Tricks of the Trade" newsletter which has grown into the quarterly "Writers' Tricks of the Trade" eZine with articles contributed by writers and people in the publishing business all over the United States and occasionally some from as far away as Europe.

I have also written over 600 published articles about the business and craft of writing. When I gave workshops and talks, attendees always asked if I had a book about writing, so I wrote Writers' Tricks of the Trade: 39 Things You Need to Know About the ABCs of Writing Fiction, as a helpful handbook for writers at all career stages.
