Get to Know Rebekah A. Morris (+Giveaway!)

As summer comes to a close, I’d like you to meet one last favorite indie author of mine…

Today I’d like to welcome author Rebekah A. Morris! Rebekah, tell us a little bit about yourself.

Hi Kate! You already know my name, so let’s start with something different. I’m an Indie Author with over 60 published titles between my novels, novellas, and short stories. I was homeschooled my whole life and spent a lot of time reading, being read to, or listening to audiobooks. I play the piano and violin and sing soprano, and I have 8 wonderful nieces and nephews who are almost all bookworms.

You’ve written quite a few books and short stories (how many is it now?). How did you get to this point in your writing journey?

Let’s see, I believe it’s over 60 short stories if you count all the stories in my collections. That’s a good question. How did I get from hating writing when I was in school, to having so many stories published? After I had graduated and discovered how much fun it was by writing “pretend letters” to some friends for a few years, I started writing my first book Home Fires of the Great War. This was a long book which took six years. During that time I knew I needed to try different writing styles and to learn to use different techniques, so I started writing short stories for practice. Some turned out better than others. I think that was the start. I’ve enjoyed the challenge of writing stories that fit specific word counts, or of writing with specific guidelines. I still write short stories because it’s fun. And I can finish it sooner.

(Later this week, we get to hear more from Rebekah about writing short stories, so look out for that. 😉 ) What projects, writing or otherwise, can you share about right now?

Oh, the projects! Kate, I hope you and your readers aren’t too busy because I have many writing projects to share!

Summer Light (known before as Lawrence & Lenexa) is hopefully going to be released next month. Sorry, I don’t have a synopsis or a cover to share yet.

A Homewood Christmas – This collection of Christmas stories by 6 different authors (and includes my story He is Still Emmanuel) is set to be released October 24th. We’d love to have a few more people sign up to join the Blog Tour and help promote it. (Sign up here!)

The Christmas Key – This is the 2022 Christmas Collection story that will be released sometime before December. Date unknown.

Bessie’s Candles just got published the beginning of this month and is a short Christmas story.

Then we go to my projects that aren’t scheduled for release yet.

“Kate & Kylie” (working title) – is a story mostly about Kylie, a young woman living with her pregnant twin sister and trying to learn to be content with where God has her.

Unknown Title – this is a story that got started by accident. I mean, I really wasn’t supposed to be starting a new story, but I just couldn’t help it and now it’s over 10k words long. What happens when three children show up in a small town and the six-year-old boy picks you as their new Daddy? That’s what happened to Clint Younger.

“Monday’s Mystery” (working title) – Logan Lucas Kent receives a postcard from his baby sister asking for his help. He knows two things: one, she hasn’t called him “Key” since they were kids, and two, she would never ask for help unless she was desperate. I’m still trying to find the sister and figure out why she is asking for help.

There you are, Kate. I said I had a few projects. And that doesn’t count all the other stories that are started or the King’s Daughters’ Writing Camp which will be opening its gates again at the end of October, or the 24-Books-before-Christmas blog posts which I’m working on for my blog.

[Rebekah also recently published book 5 in her Woodbreak series. In honor of this, the prequel is free on Amazon this week!]

Wow, I knew you were prolific but I’m impressed by all you have going. How long have you been an author? What advice would you give to newer/breakout authors?

I’ve been a published author since March of 2011, so coming close to 12 years. My advice would be:

  1. Remember that you are to do all things for the glory of God, and that means writing stories that honor Him.
  2. Remember that not everyone will like your stories. That’s okay. Learn to give all negative reviews to God.
  3. Remember to enjoy your story as you write it!

I love these. Thanks for sharing! What is your favorite way you’ve seen God make your ordinary life beautiful?

He lets me tell stories of ordinary people who let God use them to influence others for Him. I never would have dreamed I would be an author much less that God would use my ordinary stories to bless and encourage others.

Thank you so much for coming!

Thanks so much for having me! I enjoyed it.

      1. *high fives back* Anna Wood, beyond a doubt! 😁 *looks lovingly at paperbacks of the Woodbreaks on the shelf* And then Jim Wood next. But of the standalones I’ve read, I really loved Home Fires of the Great War and Gift from the Storm! My favourite short story would be Goodbye Isn’t in the Dictionary:) What’s your favourite?


  1. Hi, I’m so sorry but when I entered the giveaway, I pressed the first two ways of entries (comments) thinking it was the same one, and only realised afterwards that it wasn’t 🙈 I didn’t see exactly what we required for the second entry, but is there a way to remove that entry? Or to remove me completely and I’ll enter again? ~Lydia Willcock

  2. Such a great post! Good advice, Rebekah, and congrats for all your works published. 😉 And thanks for the giveaway! I’d pick Dylan’s Story and Dancing With Fireflies because I’ve wanted those for a long time 🙂

  3. Thank you both for the great interview! I would choose Gift from the Storm and Bessie’s Candles.
    I’m currently writing a devotional book and just last week started writing a new story called Blossom. I also have 2 novels in the editing stages.

      1. I also didn’t realise that replying with an email would post a comment on the blog haha🤣
        When is the deadline for this giveaway, btw?


  4. Guessing I’m supposed to comment here? I’d choose “Through the Tunnel” and “Missing: One Junior Ranger.” I think that’s a novel and a short story. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. aaaaand, I’m going to assume that “current project” means writing project… I’ve got like fifty. Not really, but it feels like it. I’ve been mainly working on short stories about a logger in the redwoods in the 1800s lately. Thanks for the giveaway!

      1. well, I’m thinking about turning them into… *whispers excitedly* Kindle books. I haven’t decided yet, but I might!!! Jedediah’s one of those characters that I just wish were real… he’s the best!

  6. Oh, goodness, I probably have as many current projects as Rebekah does. One of them is a Christmas story, a part of the same collection as Rebekah’s. Another is a mystery that I only just started recently but have not written too much of yet. I have a couple other Christian contemporary romances stories in various stages as well. XD

  7. Both books sound really fantastic, but I would probably choose Gift from the Storm. I am writing, but not for fun. 😂 Most of it’s research papers for school. Thanks for this giveaway!

  8. Lovely interview! I am always amazed at the number of stories Rebekah works on (and actually completes!) at the same time. So many options to choose from … for a short story, I might pick the prequel to the Woodbreak series. And for a novel, I would definitely choose “Home Fires of the Great War.”

    Thanks for the giveaway!

      1. Thanks! Never tried to get Amazon Kindle books before … wonder if I can manage it. 😉

        Second comment entry: for my current projects, I’m in trying-to-publish mode for the second book in my Heritage Diaries series; and also continuing second-edition edits for the first book in said series. Also, I’m beginning to create a plot for a new, very secret story, which may become a serial …
