Morgon Newquist started life by causing an international incident in Central America, and has been marching to the beat of her own drummer ever since. She grew up in the Rocket City - Huntsville, Alabama. After a stint at the University of Georgia to study Latin, she has returned to the place of her upbringing where she wrangles two dogs, a cat, and four children daily.

She is an avid fan of fantasy, science fiction, gaming of all types and other nerdy pursuits.

Her current focus is an ongoing saga of sword and sorcery short stories called The School of Spells and War. The first novella, Down The Dragon Hole, is highly rated and continues to introduce many new fans to the series.

Morgon has worked as a freelance writer

Off to Atlanta…

Russell and I are off to Atlanta for Dragon Con 2019! We’re heading out to make the drive in just a few moments.

I’ll definitely do a write up on the con, but until then, you can check out the Silver Empire Facebook page to see what is going on with us at Dragon Con 2019. Or if you’ll be in Atlanta too, here is Russell’s panel schedule for the weekend.

See you on the other side!

The post Off to Atlanta… appeared first on Morgon Newquist.

Homer
Morgon liked a quote
The Iliad by Homer
“As gale-winds swirl and shatter under the shrilling gusts on days when drifts of dust lie piled thick on the roads and winds whip up the dirt in a dense whirling cloud- so the battle broke, storming chaos, troops inflamed, slashing each other with bronze, carnage mounting, manslaughtering combat bristling with rangy spears, the honed lances brandished in hand and ripping flesh and the eyes dazzled now, blind with the glare of bronze, glittering helmets flashing, breastplates freshly burnished, shields fiery in sunlight, fighters plowing on in a mass. Only a veteran steeled at heart could watch that struggle and still thrill with joy and never feel the terror.”
Homer
