Taija Morgan has been a professional fiction editor since she started her editing business in 2013, and she has been a writer all her life. She has bachelor’s degrees in psychology and sociology (criminology) from the University of Calgary that contribute realism and insight to her dark, twisted fiction.

A Canadian author, she is a member of Calgary Crime Writers and Crime Writers of Canada (CWC), and she is on the board of directors for WordBridge. Taija was the editor of CWC’s 40th Anniversary anthology Cold Canadian Crime (2022), as well as many other excellent novels by very talented authors, detailed on her editing page.

Her short stories and non-fiction articles have been published in various anthologies and magazines. These include:

  • Bards and Sages Quarterly magazine (“Arsenic & Old Men,” Bards & Sages, April 2023)
  • Bad Spirits anthology (“The Blue Ghost,” 2023)
  • Etherea Magazine issue #16 (“The Crown,” Etherea, 2023)
