"Rama would trade almost anything for the chance to become someone else, even for a little while."
In the small, rural town of Aldale, West Virginia, Ramachandra “Rama” Ganeshan wants nothing more than to avoid dressing rooms for the rest of her life. After a brutal assault destroys her confidence and self-esteem, she yearns to be someone else . . . someone pretty, popular, and loved—until multiple girls in town are found murdered.
After stumbling across her beautiful classmate’s body and a terrifyingly familiar face in the murderer, Rama encounters a group of shapeshifters who know more of the killings than they let on.
Only by earning the shapeshifters’ trust and becoming one of them will Rama be able to help serve justice.
But first, she must learn to love herself and confront her painful past—and find the courage to investigate the violence.
PRAISE FOR REFLECTIONS
"It’s truly rare to find an author who can combine supernatural with real and raw subjects such as rape, but Briana has done exactly this, and she has done it perfectly. I wanted to read it all in one sitting, and there wasn’t one part of the book that I felt didn’t fit. The end left me so happy and emotional, I am in awe of this book."
-Megan Turner, Between the Pages
"This was such a good book! It really grabbed my attention and kept me hooked. It is unlike any book I've ever read, which is saying something because I'm getting my MA in English literature and I've been a bookworm my entire life. If you like murder mysteries, fantasy, or coming-of-age books, you'll like Reflections."
-Kate Mitchell, Kate the (Almost) Great
"Morgan writes insanely realistic characters... I felt for [Rama] so hard, friends. I can't remember the last time I felt this connected to a character This book got to me."
-Sarina Langer, Cookie Break

Title: Touch: A One-Act Play
Genre/Keywords: Drama, One-Act Play
Length: 76 pages
Release Date: April 26, 2016
The Seeker has grown up in a world where deliberate physical contact is a crime, and for most of her life, it hasn’t bothered her. But when some of her classmates are arrested for touching, she decides to try the most forbidden of things and touch another person. When she discovers the power of touching, and how it changes her and those around her, will the Seeker be content to return to a life without it?
PRAISE FOR TOUCH: A ONE-ACT PLAY
"This was a great concept and very well-executed. I loved the idea, and the characters are fleshed out nicely for something so short. It was a good quick read that told a thought-provoking story."
"Touch definitely lives up to its name. It touched me. I can't wait to see it on stage. Ms. Morgan's words are powerful. The pain of a basic human need being a crime is palpable in every page. The plot is smooth, the characters engaging, and the play memorable."
-L. M. Bryski

Title: Blood and Water
Genre/Keywords: Young Adult Post-Apocalyptic
Length: 228 pages
Release Date: March 4, 2017 (First edition: Oct 2015)
Seventeen-year-old Jay Harris lives in a world struck down by a deadly virus. His parents are dead, along with half the planet. When Jay’s sister Maia falls ill, he must find a cure before he loses her, too. But unbeknownst to Maia, Jay is also sick… and he’s running out of time to save them both.
When Jay’s friends tell him there might be a cure for him in France, he must decide whether to pursue it. The journey will be difficult and dangerous, especially in his weakened state, but with little time left—for himself and for Maia—it soon becomes clear there’s no other choice.
Jay leaves the relative comfort of London to search for help, knowing he may never find it. Along the way, he experiences the effects of disaster on the bonds of friendship and fluctuating notions of family. These teens, decimated by a dangerous plague, face stark choices in their search for help, not knowing if their efforts will end in loss and pain. Will Jay and Maia find a cure before the virus takes them?
PRAISE FOR BLOOD AND WATER
"The world felt closed off, like I didn't know what happened elsewhere. And perhaps that was the point, this way you focus on the characters, not the world like one does in The Walking Dead or Fallout or something. This way you HAVE to focus on the characters and their stories. It's the only thing you can do. And damn do they draw you in. This being such a character driven story, you'd hope the characters would be well rounded enough to make you care almost too much for them, so when something bad happens you die with them. And that's what happened. Bravo. Y'all should read this."
"If you're a lover of fast-paced, easy to read books with a new twist on the zombie/virus apocalypse concept, with some great secondary characters and an ending with a twist, then BLOOD AND WATER is your top choice."
