Kass Morgan Bio

    Kass Morgan is the author of the epic sci-fi series, The 100, which inspired The CW TV series by the same name.

    Kass Morgan has an unhealthy obsession with books that first manifested in third grade when she brought a copy of Mallory and the Dream Horse to her own birthday party. When she was ten, she moved from Brooklyn to Santa Monica, where kids thought she was strange for wearing so much black. Then she went back to the east coast for college, where kids thought she was strange for wearing so much pink.

    Kass studied English and History at Brown University, reading gothic novels in the library where Edgar Allan Poe conducted secret love affairs, auditioning unsuccessfully for a number of plays, and learning important truths about walking on ice in high heels.

    After college, Kass crossed the pond to pursue a Master’s degree in 19th century literature at Oxford, which was like attending Hogwarts, but with more costume parties. She returned to the states with a deep appreciation for clotted cream, a suitcase full of cocktail dresses, and a thesis on George Eliot that she has since misplaced.  

    Kass settled in New York to work in publishing. When she’s not editing novels for young bookworms to sneak into their own birthday parties, you can find her jostling for table space at Brooklyn coffee shops, asking strangers if she can pet their dogs, and e-mailing her middle school crush to thank him for introducing her to science fiction, which turns out to be very fun to write.  The 100 is her first book for teens. Kass is currently working the sequel, which she’ll finish as soon as she can find a coffee shop that allows laptops on the weekend.

      I’m Colin Surguine, a writer for CableFAX Magazine. I’m working on a story about novel adaptations for TV and I was hoping to get a chance to speak with you over the phone and maybe ask a few questions about your novel and the upcoming TV show, The 100.

      Best,

      Hello, I’m a huge fan of yours. I was wondering if you ever offer your unfinished work to fans for criticism/feedback? I know a lot of authors do so through GoodReads. I can’t wait for the sequel to The 100.
      Thanks

      Hello Kass,
      First off, I just want to say that you are by far one of the most brilliant writers I’ve ever had the pleasure of coming across. Like yourself, I am also a huge bookworm. I have been since I was 6 years old. Anne Rice was first literary experience. Then I moved on to Edgar Allan Poe and Alfred Hitchcock and so on. I just finished reading your book The 100. I just purchased it today and didn’t stop reading until I finished it. PLEASE tell the the sequel will be released soon!!!!

      Hello again,
      I ran out of room. LoL Anyway, as I was saying… I am dying for the sequel to The 100. Please please if you could give any hint as to when it will be released I would forever be indebted to you. I can literally feel the anxious pressure in my chest not knowing how long I’ll be left waiting. I will be checking weekly for updates. Keep up the outstanding and breathtaking work. You are a true genius. Thank you for giving us readers such an amazing fantasy to live though.

      Hey Kass,
      I just read your book in day, it was utterly fabulous. I literally cannot wait for the sequel. In the meantime I’ll lend your book to as many people as possible and spread the word about how awesome the 100 is.

      Hello Kass Morgan,
      First of all can I just say what a huge fan I am? I absolutely loved The 100 and I am counting down the days until Day 21 comes out! I love your work. I read in one of your interviews that you listen to music when you write, and have different playlists for different characters? I was wondering if you could share whats on some of those playlists? Thank you for your time, and thank you for your wonderful books!
      Your fan,
      Ashley

      I cannot wait for the second book. Hopefully it’s a paperback so it matches the first book. I can’t stand when my books don’t match. Anyway, I think Bellamy is my favorite character. He just seems so sweet in the book! I wish I could read the second book now. The wait is killing me!! I literally finished the first one the day I started reading it.

    8. Edith Said:

      Hello there!
      I am so amazed by your book! And yes, I am waiting for the sequel as excited as the most fanatic reader would. But I also have a question that I couldn’t find an answer to anywhere (read between the lines; too lazy to continue after searching for 15 minutes. Is the ‘Day 21′ the last book of this franchise? Or will there be anymore books? How many? I really need an answer!
      Love your work
      Hugs and kisses,
      Edith
