So a few months back I went to a Fierce Reads signing — as one does — and the super cute Katie Finn, author of Broken Hearts, Fences and Other Things to Mend, was there. We got to the question and answer section and Andye from Reading Teen mentions writing with different aliases. I don’t remember what Katie’s response was because I was in the midst of a WAIT WHAT moment. So naturally, I interrupted the panel and said, “WAIT. I’m confused. WHO ARE YOU?!” She smiled sweetly and said, “Morgan Matson.”
To be honest, I didn’t believe her at first. I mean, how could this have gone on for so long without me knowing?! Then my blogging buddies were all, “Uh, yeah, Steph. It’s her calm down, you’re making a scene.”
So I went to Twitter to see if I were the only one to not know this, ya know?
OMG. It's @morgan_m! My life just came full circle.

Turns out our moderator Gabrielle from Mod Podge Bookshelf had no idea either!

Secretly, I think Katie/Morgan enjoyed our reactions.

Though I’ve been told that Katie Finn and Morgan Matson are the same person, I’m not entirely convinced since their books are vastly different from one another. For starters, did you know they each have different tastes as well? Yeah, totes. We asked them a few Very Important Questions as a test:
1. Coke or Pepsi?
Morgan: Diet Coke FOR LIFE. Fountain preferable.
Katie: Diet coke. Though will occasionally sub Diet Dr. Pepper if needed.
2. Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Morgan: TEAM JACOB
Katie: Can I be Team Jasper instead?
3. Cake or Pie?
Morgan: pie! Blueberry or peach.
Katie: Cake! And the more frosting, the better.
4. Gale or Peeta?
Katie: Peeta. I mean, come on.
5. Ninjas or Pirates?
Katie: Ninja Pirates. Best of both worlds!
See? They are totally different people… just living in the same body. MORE EVIDENCE:
