About

 

isabella-drew-meYou probably stumbled across this site in one of two ways:

1) You were watching Cheaper by the Dozen (1 or 2), The Pacifier, or Hannah Montana and thought to yourself, “I wonder whatever happened to the girl who played Kim/Lulu/Sarah?” Then you looked up my name, Googled “Morgan York,” and here you are.

2) You’re a writer/some publishing-affiliated person who followed the link to my site via my Twitter page. And you just read #1 in this list and are thinking, “Wait, Hannah Montana? What??”

unnamedAnyway, hi. I’m Morgan York, a 24-year-old New Yorker trying to get her novels published. Currently, my focus as a writer is YA fantasy, but I’ve also dabbled in contemporary/realistic fiction, both in YA and adult. I enjoy reading (across a variety of genres and publication eras), video games, traveling, and drinking all kinds of tea.

On this blog, you’ll mostly find me discussing writing, books, feminism, LGBTQ issues, YA lit, publishing, diverse fiction, my acting years, kindness/respect for others, and anything else that strikes my fancy. My most recent project is my Writes and Crafts series, an ongoing collection of blog posts in which I dole out advice related to various writing topics (such as creating characters, plotting, worldbuilding, etc.). There’s also Write Bites, a series of shorter blog posts that serve as both writing updates and my writing-related musings of the week.

Thank you so much for visiting, and head on over to the FAQ if you have any questions!

  1. Hi Morgan, My name is Emma and I’m an Italian girl (i’m 15 years old now).
    When I was younger, I loved watching “The Pacifier” whit my sister, my little brother and two our friends.
    Then, we always played to be the film’s characters. I was Lulu, because of my age. You have been the first actress I loved so much. I remember I wanted to be like you!
    She was so beautiful and I wanted to wear like her, speak like her and to be like her. Lulu is always been my idol, and growing, she has become a little part of me.
    Yesterday I thought about you because of some reasons and searching for some news about you, I found this website and I’ve discovered that you have stopped acting. It made me little bit sad, but if you are happy, so am I. Hope you can realize your dreams and your aspirations.
    I really hope you will write me back…
    Lots of love,
    Emma❤️❤️❤️

    1. Hi Lucas! It wasn’t really a decision; I’ve just always been writing/coming up with stories for as long as I can remember. One moment that stands out to me is when I was nine, a teacher praised my writing saying it was some of the best writing from a kid my age she’d seen, and that she wouldn’t be surprised if I published a book someday. I think that was what spurred me to actually focus on writing in an intentional way (I started my first book when I was 10 and only got a chapter in–didn’t manage to finish a full novel until I was 16). So it’s just always been a part of me!

  5. Neither 1 nor 2. I was looking at primal astrology and the list of famous woodpeckers, to see if in fact I had the same personality traits with those on the list. Your name is first on the list (reverse chronological order) and google pointed me here.
