Featured Author: Shyloh and Alex Morgan

Welcome Today's Featured Author
Shyloh and Alex Morgan!!!

Quinn Mason is a young Southern gentleman. Perhaps, gentleman is a stretch for how he lived his earlier years. He was the kid whose life seemed charmed, a popular athlete in high school who won a full scholarship. Life was on track for him until the death of his parents. In one terrible moment, Quinn went from having everything being everything for his young siblings. He left college, and used the money from his parent’s life insurance policy to buy a bar. The bar supported him and the kids, affording him the ability to give for them the life they were robbed of, even sending them to college. 
Mhisery Bellemy has returned to Midnight, reluctantly. Her mother died, and she is left to take care of her drunken father, and the family cafe´. She had escaped the small town’s clutches as soon as she was of age, and swore never to return. Now, her siblings have turned to her, leaning heavily on her for help. The woman who got out of town and made a life she loves is now forced, by the bonds of family, and the weight of obligation, to return and give up what she had worked to build for herself. 
These two are unlikely to cross paths, but chance throws them into the right place at the right time. Quinn’s brother is the catalyst that brings Mhisery into Quinn’s line of sight. And that’s all it took, one look and he knows he has to have her. The golden boy athlete is now drawn to the tall, tattooed woman stepping off the last bus into town. 
Will Quinn ever have the woman he desires, and make her his own, or will she return to the life she loves far away from the small town of Midnight, and Quinn, or will she stay and make a life with the man she loves? 
Chasing Midnight tells a story of love, friendship, and sacrifice. This talented duo, Shyloh & Alex Morgan, will rip your heart out and have you falling in love with the inhabitants of this quaint, quirky, town. Welcome to southern seduction, and the town of Midnight, where the Darkest Desires of Dixie become a reality.

Clayton Carter is a small town sheriff with a haunting past. He watched his brother murder his father when he was only fifteen. He escaped an alcoholic mother when he went to live his affluent aunt and uncle where he overcome his childhood tragedies to become a respected member of the community. Even though, some scars heal on the outside, they still remain on the soul and can affect every aspect of a person's life. His life was so chaotic as a child, now Clay has to have absolute control. He walks a very gray line between the black-and-white world of law enforcement.

Isabella was an extremely sheltered child who grew into a naive woman. A childhood catastrophe caused her parents to be exceedingly overprotective. Her grandmother bestowed the family bakery to her with hopes Isabella would learn to live — not just exist.

When an arsonist threatens Midnight, Clay is determined to solve the case and keep the residents of his hamlet safe. While questioning some of the locals, he meets Isabella. He has seen her a million times in the bakery but never noticed her. Clay is battling rumors in the town concerning his sexuality and decides Isabella could be a good cover. Clay only dates women outside of Midnight so no one will ever find out his fetishes run to the darker side.

While using Isabella as a cover, he begins to notice the woman beneath the frumpy clothes, and guileless outlook on life. Isabella begins to discover the heart of a man who only shows coldness to the outside world. When the arsonist targets Isabella, Clay has to fight his inner demons and face his feelings for her, all while trying to catch the fire-bug plaguing Midnight.

As Isabella becomes more disenchanted can she and Clay find a common ground between his controlling nature and her new-found autonomy?

We each have certain characters that we write but we collaborate on other aspects in the process. 
4) Do you have a favorite character to write about?
Shyloh – In each character we develop is a part of us.  Some of them are easier to write than others.   We do have our favorites and for me, I guess Syra is one of my favorites.  She is Quinn’s younger sister and she has a little secret of her own.
Alex – At the moment, one of my favorite characters to write is Tiernan Carter.  Even though he is in prison for murder, I can relate to a lot of his head space. 
5) Do you have any “odd” writing habits?
Certain characters must have certain music playing or they won’t ‘talk’.  We also, after a prior experience, edit every chapter as it is written.
6) Do you listen to music while you write?
Music is a huge influence to our writing.
7) Do you work with an outline, or just write?
We work with an outline.  We tried just writing and it was a huge disaster.

Mutual quirks – Not drinking out the same glass twice.  Won’t share a drink with anyone, if you take a drink you can have it.  Everything has to smell like bleach.  Floors have to mopped every day.  Laundry gets done every day.  We are both extremely OCD.
