Writing YA Books by Monique Morgan

Writing YA books is a wonderful experience. I think that the age group has a certain magic that’s attached to it, a time where everything is new and exciting. Writing about characters that are in this age group is thrilling, everything is heightened when it happens for the first time.

Writing YA also means sticking to a certain recipe, although it’s somewhat loosely defined. I think most authors have their own set of guidelines that they follow when deciding what is appropriate for YA books. 

But just like anything else, sometimes guidelines are subjective. Different genres sometime call for more questionable inclusions, such as excessive swearing or sexual behavior. I guess, the guidelines are better defined by the story itself, than any rules.

But no matter the age, a captivating story calls to every heart.

About the Author:

Monique Morgan lives in Utah with her husband and her three children. She writes Action Adventure YA with a sprinkle of "whatever". Her books cross the genres between Sci-Fi, Horror, and Fantasy, with one main element, a main character who kicks butt in any situation.

  1. I'm going to have to find Monique's books! They sound great.

  2. Awesome post! I have a special place in my heart for YA :). Love reading it. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Great post! When I was a teenager, I don't think there was a YA genre. If there was, it wasn't popular like it is today.
