How did you come up with the concept and characters for the book? Tell us about the main characters – what makes them tick? Are you characters built of real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination? Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?

Every single character in The Long Road Home is based on someone I know, or in some cases, more than one person. I like to think there might be a small part of me in most of them, (not all of them I hope!) but for the most part, the main characters are built around the strongest, most incredible people I know. The three main characters, Emily, Paige and Casey were all meant to be slightly different in habits and experiences than how they turned out, but I found as I went through the process of writing their stories, their personalities and traits took on a life of their own, but their fundamental personalities are exactly as I hoped they would be and they are all three women I am proud to know in real life. 

My favourite character is Paige. Although she’s an incredibly strong woman who’s spent her life helping others and looking out for them, she also flawed and breaks down when she can no longer be strong for others. She’s so unequivocally human, so very much the true definition of a good and decent woman, who manages to see through the walls people put up and see the good in those who no longer see it in themselves.


The Long Road Home
by J H Morgan
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Thriller 


Emily Winter has spent more than half her life hiding from her past and the demons that still reside in it. She has tried to hide her pain with booze and mindless sex, never letting anyone close.

When her social worker and the closest thing to a friend she’s ever had calls Emily for help, Emily knows she can’t say no. Paige’s daughter Casey had been kidnapped and held for days in a foreign land. Paige knows the only person who could understand what Casey is going through would be Emily.

Going back to the town she hated, Emily is confronted with her past in more ways than one. Besides trying to help Casey work through her trauma, Emily discovers someone remembers more about her past than anyone else in town, and that someone is eager to pick up where they left off.’In order for Emily to survive, she will have to confront her own demons, the ones in her mind and the real ones waiting to finish the job they started years before.

"Nothing less than a masterclass in the sculpting of a raw, emotional and thoroughly compelling work of fiction." The Scotsman

"A book that takes you on an epic, emotional journey of brilliance." Yorkshire Post






Married to her best friend, journalist J. H. Morgan has three children under the age of seven and considers parenting to be the greatest adventure of her life. She lives in the tiny African kingdom of Swaziland, where she works full-time and writes in the middle of the night. After reading every book she owned or could borrow, she began writing her own stories. 

Morgan's extraordinary life experiences and those of the people closest to her inspire her writing and give her valuable insight into the painful world of addiction. She completely understands the need to start life anew and the consequences such a decision triggers.
