Morgen Bailey


Morgen’s fiction books include crime, mystery and women’s novels, and short story collections. Click on the above link for more details.

They are mostly set against a Northamptonshire and Hertfordshire background, whether there is crime involved, a dog-detective that can talk, or a serial dater on a mission! 

Her non-fiction works are aimed at all levels of writers whether beginners or those who want to refresh their skills – Morgen also tutors in person and has several online writing courses available. She runs her own mentor group on Facebook, very much a collaboration, and she invites all authors to join. Her Writer’s Block Workbooks are a go-to for every author. 

NOW, Morgen also writes Your Unique Story – using your components,  up to 2,000 words. Ideal for a birthday or Christmas (or whenever!) present for yourself or someone you know who would enjoy having something written exclusively for them.


Morgen has edited over 300 manuscripts, working with authors directly as well as publishers including Matador/Troubador, Michael Terence Publishing and Bloodhound Books. Click on the above link for more information.
