D. Morgana is short for Daelyn Morgana. Like many others out there, Daelyn is an up and coming author hoping to one day see her books published on Barnes & Noble shelves and hitting the New York Times Bestseller list.
Her road to that dream first started to become true when she achieved her debut publication with Victory Tales Press in October of 2016. Her short story, Embermyst, was published in their Halloween anthology, Paranormal Pleasures. Luck would not be on her side unfortunately for not even a year later the independent publishing company closed up shop and went out of business, taking her debut story out of print. With all rights returned to her at the company’s closing, Daelyn is still currently working a rewritten, expanded version of Embermyst into a full length novel which will one day be resubmitted elsewhere for publication.
In the midst of going out of print with one story, Daelyn scored another short story acceptance in an anthology amongst the digital world of Wattpad. In November of 2017, The CRYPTIC — a group of writers who “prowl the shadows to promote dark fiction across all genres” among Wattpad — released their first Halloween anthology made up of twenty-one different dark humor tales from authors across Wattpad. The Laughing Crow featured a new release short story of Daelyn’s, Crowing Hennie.
Daelyn typically writes dark fantasy and paranormal tales best suited for mature readers. However, she has been known to branch out into horror, steampunk, light sci-fi, and other sub genres of fantasy and paranormal. Her writing passions forever remain in the dark shadows though, where her heart resides in the solitude of night. As an avid reader from a young age, Daelyn has been writing for as long as she can remember. Her hobbies on the side of writing and a full time job include archery, camping, horseback riding, and crafting. She is also a Camp NaNoWriMo and NaNoWriMo addict since her first plunge into the madness in July 2014.
Currently Daelyn has a multitude of works in progress (including Embermyst, her Dark Heir series, and many other tales) which she continues to tirelessly type away at in the midst of the chaos that is life whenever she has a spare moment.
