After finding a box of romance novels in her teens, Staci Morrison devoured them like candy. Raised in church, she hid the racy 80s covers from her dad and often stayed up all night, lost in an amazing tale. An avid cross-genre reader and natural storyteller, she dreamed of one day writing a book that blended everything she loved, but listened to the naysayers who proclaimed, “You can’t do that!”
Eventually, she told them to hush and went for it. The creative explosion that ensued was akin to a nuclear bomb, resulting in the ground-breaking Millennium Series.
Her best friend gave her a tea towel that read, “I love Jesus, but I cuss a little.” It holds a place of honor in her busy kitchen.
An international business executive by trade, she still stays up too late, but these days she’s writing instead of reading, getting through the day fueled on coffee and boundless energy.
If you are searching for something new in Christian Fiction or are just weary of the woke agenda in mainstream novels, she just might be the author for you.
It takes courage to break the rules, in the end inspiration came from several of my favorite authors who all broke boundaries:
Susan Elizabeth Phillips, gave me the courage to have fun, to be light and sexy and enjoy the story.
John and Stasi Eldredge, my “Captive Heart” was truly inspired to tackle this “Epic”.
For the late Jack Kelley, my debt to you is limitless. Your work inspired, taught, and sent me down a rabbit hole of research and revelation where Millennium was conceived.
For Laura Kinsale, the final inspiration, your work is the most fearless of all; mixing romance with the struggles of faith, this book would not exist without “Flowers from the Storm” and “Shadowheart“.
The Millennium Series is not typical in subject matter, style or structure. Ambitious and innovative, the story unfolds in short scenes and vignettes, revealing the world in vivid clarity. Written from multiple character points of view, the reader is drawn into the action. This unique structure allows the reader to become part of the scene, to see the action from all the character’s perspectives, not just one or two. It opens the world in a masterful way, and in the process, breaks a lot of rules. Good.
Thank you for visiting. I cannot express how much your support means to me. About a year into this journey, a friend asked me, “So, what do you want out of this? Are you doing it for the money, or are you going for something else?”
I laughed and said, “Well, if I was going for money, I would not have written a series that defies genre classification, and I certainly would not have included my Christian faith mixed with romance-novel type intimacy!” Then I paused, really thinking about the question, and said, “I just want people to love my stories and characters as much as I do.”
Five years later, those words still ring true. If you’ve enjoyed the novels, tell your friends, send me a note, or drop a review. I would really appreciate it.
