Tip toe, tip toe, crackle, crunch!
Chipper the Fox sneaks through the forest to spread cheer to his weary friends. Will his merry making be a success? Or will a smelly fish disaster and a log pile tumble ruin his plans?
“Chipper Makes Merry” takes you on Chipper’s arctic quest filled with lessons of love, kindness and determination.
Morgan is a fun wife, and imperfect mom of 3 crazy kiddos and 2 little lemon (problematic) dogs. She tries to live her strengths the best she can. She likes to say she is creative, not crafty. Morgan is a homemade Halloween costume type of mom. She lets her kids mix the play doh. She bakes fun birthday cakes (cutely, but far from perfection). She loves a homemade valentine and a school project. Chipper the Fox is an extension of Morgan's creative strength. Originally designed as character to create merry during the holiday season, Chipper has grown and developed into a story of determination and love.

Chipper Makes Merry by Kimber Fox Morgan
What’s for dinner tonight? Costco lasagna! Its game day so the family will be coming and going. However, do not think all my kids will actually eat the lasagna. I’m sure a hot dog or a frozen pizza will also be on the menu! There are about 3 dinners I can cook that everyone will actually eat. I was a poor mom at making them “eat what were given”!
How long have you been writing? I have written seriously on and off since college which was about 20 plus years ago now. I minored in English, and that is when I realized that I really did enjoy writing. I loved poetry class and I didn’t even mind all the 12 -15-page essays that came with all my English and History classes! However, I do wish I had been a little bit more focused on it as an actual career before now. Better late than never, I guess!
What is your writing schedule? I am a full-time mom, so it’s during the school day! I try to get a workout in, walk the dogs and clean the kitchen, then focus my time writing and working between 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Somedays it works, and somedays I make a lot of excuses. If it’s summertime or the kids are out of school, I sigh (heavily) A LOT at them, and tell them they have to make their own lunch! Not much writing gets done! I almost NEVER write a night. My brain shuts down by 7 p.m.!
Share something your readers wouldn’t know about you. I worked as a character at Walt Disney World when I was 16. Chip and Dale, Roger Rabbit and Pooh. YES! It was VERY HOT! But fun!
What advice would you give budding writers? If interested in publishing, I would suggest using author coaches. There are so many good ones out there who are readily available to share what they have learned. I would have never gotten my book to print without talking to others and educating myself on the entire process. There is so much to know and learn. Ask for help!
