Morgan L. Busse

morgan-busse-NLR-4I’m a writer by day and a mother by night. I write fantasy and steampunk novels and am the author of the epic fantasy Follower of the Word series and the award-winning steampunk series, The Soul Chronicles. My debut novel, Daughter of Light, was a Christy and Carol Award finalist. My latest fantasy novel, Mark of the Raven, comes out November 2018 with Bethany House. When I’m not writing, I love to play games, take long walks, and dream about my next novel.

My Books


Mark of the Raven (Book 1, The Ravenwood Saga). Lady Selene is the heir to the Great House of Ravenwood and the secret family gift of dreamwalking. As a dreamwalker, she can enter a person’s dreams and manipulate their greatest fears or desires. For the last hundred years, the Ravenwood women have used their gift of dreaming for hire to gather information or to assassinate.

As she discovers her family’s dark secret, Selene is torn between upholding her family’s legacy–a legacy that supports her people–or seeking the true reason behind her family’s gift.

Her dilemma comes to a head when she is tasked with assassinating the one man who can bring peace to the nations, but who will also bring about the downfall of her own house.

One path holds glory and power, and will solidify her position as Lady of Ravenwood. The other path holds shame and execution. Which will she choose? And is she willing to pay the price for the path chosen?
