Annaliese Morgan

Hi, I'm Annaliese Morgan - an author, traveller and solo mum of two boys. Originally from Yorkshire but based in London the three of us are rather like the three musketeers, we have a Basset hound called Pineapple, but he is more meh than musketeer. I abandoned writing this bio in the third person (as it is 'supposed to be done') because it sounded boring, unfriendly and grey trouser suit wearing; of which I am none.

Formerly, and in a different life, I was an award-winning Advanced Veterinary Surgical Nurse in the UK. I co-authored a book on veterinary anaesthesia and analgesia in 1999 for the BSAVA. In 2007 and 2009 I was sought after to write three books (NVQ2, NVQ3 and A-Z for Veterinary Nurses) to help students pass their exams. In 2008 I opened the first pet health spa in the UK and published Desperate Housepets - Become a Chic Pet Owner Without Being a Bitch in 2014, and ran a successful blog of inspiring autobiographical vignettes entitled The Annaliese Journals - terrible title with some dodgy writing in parts but we all start somewhere - thousands loved it and were helped by the blog pieces, which is the bit that matters.

Since a child I've always been a writer and traveller, but after recovery from a near fatal motorbike accident including over eleven operations and learning to walk again, losing my brother to suicide and divorce in 2009, I chucked the burnt boil-in-the-bag rice in the bin and decided to up level.

Fast forward a few soul-searching years trekking across the planet and enough rejections professional and personally to defy the law of averages, I brought my edgy style, love for the supernatural and all things magical, together with my abilities, influence and passion for young people.

I write magic realism and contemporary for young and new adults and I am the owner of Black Daisy Press dedicated to young and new adults. I also hold accredited diplomas in symbology, vampirology and Ancient Egyptian magic, and an expert in the supernatural and mystical worlds.

My mission is to encourage, young and new adults to embrace being unique individuals and to stand out in a world of followers, whilst providing enchanting and entertaining material so they never feel alone, as I always did.

You can sign up for my monthly newsletter if you wish.

I hope I move you into an enchanting life.
