Interviewing Author Samantha Morgan
Q1. Tell us about yourself. What are your favorite books to read?
A. Howdy, I'm Samantha, infertility survivor, two-time adoptive mom, and self-proclaimed sprinkler of hope! I founded Rush to Hope Ministries in 2017 with the purpose of helping and connecting others who are struggling with family building. I write about infertility and adoption on my blog, but I also give others a platform to share their personal stories.
I must admit I love a good chick-lit novel or anything from Karen Kingsbury. Right now I am reading Captivate: The Science of Succeeding With People by Vanessa Van Edwards. A great read if you are interested in how people tick!
Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from?
A. After our first adoption, I knew I would write a book one day. So many people say "I could write a book after all I've been through". Well, that's me, but I didn't want to just say it I wanted to make it a reality!
Q3. What are you working on for 2019?
A. I am currently working on my first novel based on our first international adoption. As well as traveling to women's conferences and events speaking to sprinkle God's hope!
Q4. How long have you been writing?
A. I started writing on my blog in 2017, but have always kept a personal journal. I have an addiction to blank pages wrapped in a beautiful cover!
Q5. What advice would you like to give to other authors?
A. I never felt that I was a strong reader or writer. I struggled in school and from a young age, I was told and felt like I wasn't enough. BUT, we are all enough. If it's something you really want you can make it happen. Know your strengths and weaknesses, and accept them; work on what you can fix, and surround yourself with people who can fix the rest!
Q6. Where can we connect with you online?
A. You can find me at Rushtohopeministries.com also facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest!
Q7. Do you plan on writing any more books in the future?
A. I'm praying for the best for my first book, and then yes, I have many book ideas including our second adoption story as a squeal to the first.
Q8.Did you go to college to be a writer?
A. I never expected to write a book or even start a blog, however, one of my favorite classes was English Lit. The teacher actually taught me a love for reading. I majored in elementary education and have a masters in administration.
