Okay, at the outset let me tell you that I’m not used to talking about myself. At this moment, I’m utterly perplexed at what to say. I have to apologize for that.

So, at great danger to all of us, I have to invite Lilith to join me. (Oh, like I have a choice; she’s taken up residence in my head and won’t go away.)

Lilith: Oh, give it a rest already. You’d be tongue-tied without me here.

Try to ignore her.

Lilith: As if.

So—about me. Umm…yeah. When I think of “me,” what comes to mind is my associations with family and friends, and what I say becomes more about them.

Lilith: You don’t have a life. I keep telling you, life as an undead would spice up your existence a hundredfold.

No thanks.

Lilith: But you so enjoy writing about me. You know that snarkiness is me. Don’t deny it. You’d be a mayonnaise sandwich without my interference. Say, speaking of food, I am starving. Where can I find me a little idiot to feast on? I’d even put up with a blood bag.

Oh, quit whining. I’ll get you a rat-infested house tonight. I do have to admit, that was a good idea you had. Hire myself out as a rat exterminator, and take you to the jobs. We’re making some good money off these gigs.

Lilith: Horrid little beasts. But it keeps me fed. Since your witchy friend put that curse on me, I have no choice.

Ha! Yep, that was a good one. Made you allergic to human blood. Never thought I’d see the day.

So—let’s move on to how I became an author.

Lilith: Oh, let’s not and say we did. You put that sap Vlad in the book long before I showed up. Why didn’t you make HIM your pet character?

He was easily put away by Heaven’s soldiers. You, however, we can’t seem to get rid of. This was the best way to keep you under control. Now quit interrupting.

I did not become an author by choice. I never had an inclination to tell a story. My high-school English classes were spent trying to stay awake and seeing how much mischief I could get away with. Heck, that was the case with all of my classes.

Lilith: And you say we have nothing in common…
Ahem.

Lilith (rolls eyes): Fine. Blabber on. We’re all so enthralled. Wish I had a thrall here—I could use some blood, even if it does make me throw up.

ANYWAY…as I was saying…the role of author was pretty much thrust upon me by a nightmare I had one night. This was some nine years ago, but it’s still as vivid as the night I had it. I was being attacked by a vampire, and could feel my heart race and my veins start to collapse. Just as my heart slowed and then stopped, I woke up. When I went back to sleep, I was at another scene in the dream.

When I woke up fully, the visions did not go away, as one would expect with dreams. Instead, I thought about it at work, at home—wherever I was. And every time I came to the end, it started over, with more and more scenes added.

After a couple of weeks of this, the entire thing had become fully-formed, and would take an hour or more to reel through my head…

Lilith: I’m reeling from boredom. Get to where I fit in already.

You’re only mentioned once, toward the end of the book, and that’s because I had done some research on vampires in history. That was what led to the second book, where you did your best to take over the entire story.

Lilith: Try to? I WAS the story!

Cain, Judas, and Vlad Dracul were the story. You were the badass vampire in it. Now let me finish.

Lilith: Fine. But we’re having a little talk after this. Remember who I am, and my horned-beastie of a mate still has sway over what happens to me. You don’t want to get him pissed.

Oh good. I’d like to see a bit of a fight between Satan and the powers of Heaven. I kinda miss the fun we all had.

Anyway—after I started writing down what was going on in my head, those parts left my mind. When I finally had it all on paper, I had what I thought was a pretty good story. I shopped it out to friends and family, and I am pleased to say that the horror was effective enough that it kept my readers awake at night—because they didn’t dare go to sleep.

Lilith: See? You and I are not so much different.

Kindly shut your pie-hole. We are not alike at all.

Lilith: Ha!

She’s impossible. Well, I’d like to yammer on some more, now that I’ve gotten started, but I’m sure the blogger whose site I’m clogging up would like to have some space for his or her own thoughts.

There was one more thing I wanted to add. The question arose as to how I would describe myself in five words or less. I suppose I could say--

Lilith: “I haven’t committed homicide today.”

Do you mind??? Besides, that’s six words. You have a contraction there.

Lilith: Picky, picky. Can we go now? I want to go scare someone.

Hang on! My five words would be:

I do what I do.

Lilith: Lame!! Dammit, girl, you should just let me take over completely.

Sigh. We’re going now. Lilith, let go of the nice interviewer. Oh, look—you’ve gotten sick all over the floor. Man, I can’t take you anywhere.



Be Not Afraid 
Pride's Downfall Book 1 
by K.R. Morrison 
Genre: Paranormal Horror 


Now available from Linkville Press: Lydia’s faith in God is strong—at least on paper. But what happens when that faith is tested? Turned into a vampire by the worst—Vlad Drakul—she feels that God has abandoned her. But the opposite is true. God rescues her from a fate worse than death, and brings her into the plan He has for global redemption. With the help He sends, she feels like nothing can stop her. But when Vlad torments her again, and then her family, the temptation to run and hide is almost too strong to resist. Her answer to God’s call is the deciding factor in the battle that pits the angelic powers of God against the demonic powers of Hell. 

**Only .99 cents!! ** 





Unholy Trinity 
Pride's Downfall Book 2 


What happened in the moments after Judas hanged himself?

Where did Cain go after the death of Abel?

Myths abound, and some of them have similar endings.

Cain murders his brother out of jealousy. Judas betrays Jesus to those who want to see Him dead. Vlad the Impaler destroys without mercy, and is legendary as Count Dracula. Three souls, collected and bound together in the same body by Lilith, Satan’s mate and favorite slave.

Cain, Judas, and Vlad Tepes all fall into the same trap: weakened by pride but too stubborn to turn back, they become cursed to walk the world through all of time. Pursued by Hunters, a group first established by Cain’s tribe when he was abducted by Lilith and the Serpent, they must keep one step ahead of their enemies from century to century.

The tale starts in Genesis, moves to the time before and after the Crucifixion, then makes the journey into what will become known as the Carpathian Mountains. We are dropped briefly into the 15th century, pass through time in Romania and Scotland, then conclude in 19th-century New Orleans. This is where the story, and the three-souled Beast, must await another day and another century. 

**Only .99 cents!! ** 





Resurgence: The Rise of Judas 
Pride's Downfall Book 3 


Two years after the horrific events of “That Night”, Lydia and her family and friends have settled back into their lives. All seems peaceful, but for the haunting memories of the war that took place over their heads. A battle that everyone else has put aside as “mass hysteria.”

Now, with the unearthing of an old house in New Orleans and the appearance of a mysterious woman named Delilah, events are transpiring that have the Bronsons and their friends worried.

Delilah is a mystery. She takes on a partnership with a world-famous loser, and insists on rebuilding the crumbling buildings on the hill overlooking Lydia’s home town. The very same buildings that housed the evil that plagued them all two years before.

Pat and Trudy, the Bronson siblings, learn that their time to act is upon them. Demons and dark shadows are appearing in their lives, and in the lives of those they love. The one seemingly most threatened is their own father, Steve, who can’t seem to spend enough time in Delilah’s company. Then there are Martha, Sean, and Ryan, whose sinister experiences make them re-think their stance on the “mass-hysteria event.”

Not to mention Toby, almost three years old, who has powers beyond any mortal, but is definitely nothing more than a toddler.

Once again, the Bronsons must take on responsibilities much more than they think they can handle. However, God sends more helpers: an odd old man by the name of Nick, who lives in the park; and Miriam, a young lady who steals Pat’s heart.

Side by side, these young people show that their generation can be just as strong as the previous one. For they will need all the strength they can muster to fight the foe among them. 






K.R. Morrison has lived in the Pacific Northwest for over twenty years. She uses her maiden name to show honor to her Scottish roots, and as a tribute to her dad. She and her husband have two young-adult children.

"Be Not Afraid" is her first book, a darling little creature spawned from an all-too real nightmare. Her second book, "Unholy Trinity", was published in 2016.

"Resurgence: The Rise of Judas", is the third book in the "Pride's Downfall" series, and the fourth book, "Enoch's Return", will be available by September of 2020.
