Cate Morgan

about this book: In this complilation of sweet, contemporary romance novellas, I explore how creative individuals come together to become more than they could have been apart. Musicians, chefs, and artists all get the Waking Muse treatment in this box set!

I come from a long line of Irish musicians and story tellers, and there was a time, many moons ago, that I studied theatre with all the vim and vigour of a true social outcast. In these days of the internet and You Tube, however, I'm finding inspiration everywhere.

As far as the creative aspects of this series goes, I embraced the old adage of Write What You Know--as well as What You Love! Like Robert and Tamsin in THE LADY TENNANT, I play both the piano and violin. I tapped my husband's experience as a former chef and restaurant owner when writing HEARTH & HOME, and the recipes in the back of the book (and described therein) are largely his. When it came time to write FALLEN ANGEL, I drew on my art background (I came within inches of going to a private art institute at one point, to study illustration in the hopes of getting into book cover design).

But that doesn't mean I didn't do my research, either. I'm fascinated by art theft, heists, and con men, and I've always wanted to write a story centering around those things--and, thus, FALLEN ANGEL was born. As far as THE LADY TENNANT goes, there really is a Stradivarius by that name, made in 1699, just before his golden period. At one time it earned a record auction price at Christies, and is currently on loan to Yang Liu.
