Uninvited Memories is the story of Dr. Natalee Morgan, retired Chief Petty Officer, United States Navy. After her retirement, she accepted a position as an investigator for a congressperson. Her responsibilities were to investigate the validity of letters of inquiry sent to the congressperson. Because of a certain letter, she receives concerning a sailor, and the thought that she may have seen someone from her past, she is caught in a whirlwind of events which thrusts her into the Navy in 1999 and brought back 20-year-old memories of her first tour of duty in Washington DC and memories, good and not good, of the love and the heart-hurt she endured during that time.
What do you want readers to learn from the story?
Keeping a journal/diary is a wonderful thing. Words take on a life of their own when left in your head. So even if there are hurts, it helps you to put what is in your head on paper. That way you can assess it and act as usual. And sometimes, your words from the past will help not make the same mistakes again.
What do you want readers to learn from your life?
Be true to yourself. Allow your “good angel” to help you make sound decisions, even if it hurts for a little while. Joy always comes in the morning.
Who is your favorite author and why?
One of my favorite authors is Francine Rivers. I enjoy reading her books because she takes events from history and creates stories around them that bring the people of that era alive for me. I love that she rights spiritually. And besides, anyone who can make ancient, biblical Roman Soldiers and the warriors they fought against seem human and show compassion, is alright with me.
Tell me about a book that changed your life and why?
Other than the Bible I don’t think I have one particular book that affected the part in life I took. I think the fact that I was able to escape into the books is what helped my life.
What advice do you have for people who want to write a book?
Don’t ever think that people may not want to read your words. Don’t hide your words in a journal under your bed or in a drawer. That’s what I did, and it took 20 years for me to publish my first book, even though I knew in my spirit that I would be a great author, even if I only sold one book because that one book brought joy to one person. So don’t hide your words. Share them with the world.
What are you currently working on right now?
Book Two of my series, Earl Grey Chronicles entitled the State of Affairs…Deception. Book 1 is Uninvited Memories.
Do you have anything you would like to add?
Writing a book can be just as much fun as reading one. Just let your imagination tell you pen who your characters are. Bring them to life. And remember if you don’t enjoy reading your books…re-write so that you do. Then you will know that others will enjoy it also. God Bless you and HAPPY WRITING.
