Getting Real with author Stephanie Morrill

Thanks for coming by, Stephanie, to get real with us!

Here's what Stephanie had to say:

What does it say about me that my first thought when I hear the phrase “Get real” is that it’s being said sarcastically? Like if you say to your best friend, “Someday I want to be a novelist,” and she rolls her eyes and says, “Get real.”

But I think Get Real is the battle cry of this generation. We’re suspicious of anyone who seems to have it all together, and we question and wrestle with our information sources—from the nightly news to the Holy Bible—as we search for truth. In a world where much of what we see is fake, thanks to cosmetic surgery and Photoshop, we’ve become a people who are drawn to authenticity.

Stephanie Morrill is a twenty-something living in Overland Park, Kansas with her husband and two kids. Her only talents are reading, writing, and drinking coffee, so career options were somewhat limited. Fortunately, she discovered a passion for young adult novels and has been writing them ever since. Stephanie is the author of The Reinvention of Skylar Hoyt series and is currently working on other young adult projects. She enjoys encouraging and teaching teen writers and does so on her blog To connect with Stephanie and read samples of her books, check out
