About the Author

Sophie Keetch has a BA in English Literature from Cardiff University, which included the study of Arthurian legend. She is Welsh and lives with her husband and son in South Wales. For her debut novel, she was drawn to Morgan le Fay because of the progression of her character through time, becoming ever more villainous as she was written and rewritten in the words of men. But beneath the infamy, Sophie felt there was an unsung story and was compelled to seek out the woman behind the myth and give a voice to her contradictions.


"A breath of fresh air. . . . The sort of reinvention that every woman in Arthurian lore deserves." -PASTE


"With equal attention to politics and witchcraft, Keetch's exploration of Morgan's growth shows how the perspective of men has warped the character over the years. Fans of Arthurian legends retold will not want to miss this." --Publishers Weekly

"A very real, passionate retelling of Morgan le Fay's story, with detail about political and magical lives, and the women who are such a vital part of the tale." --Tamora Pierce, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"This is the powerfully feminist, intricately woven, and realistically enchanting Arthurian tale you've been waiting for. Morgan is her name, and I love her." --Kiersten White, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Camelot Rising Trilogy

"Compelling and poignant, Sophie Keetch's prose is as mesmerizing as the ocean's tides, illuminating Morgan's life with a deft and attentive hand. Built on the bones of exquisite longing and unsung power, Morgan Is My Name portrays a woman forging her own path and reclaiming her story. A stunning delight." --Rebecca Ross, internationally bestselling author of A River Enchanted

"Morgan Is My Name is a powerful reimagining of the origins of Morgan le Fay, infusing the familiar tales of Arthurian legend with a fresh voice, profoundly human characters, and an atmosphere both wistful and deliciously ominous. This book felt like a warm hearth in a lonely castle by the sea, and I loved every sentence." --H.M. Long, author of Hall of Smoke

"As fierce and wild as the Cornish sea she is named for, Morgan defies her cruel stepfather King Uther and follows her passions for healing, scholarship, and a handsome young knight. Keetch's deft handling of this ancient tale highlights Morgan's intelligence and strong will, treating readers to a truly delicious tale of self-actualization and vengeance." --Luna McNamara, author of Psyche and Eros

"Sophie Keetch takes us to a familiar destination--Camelot--on a brand-new road. Morgan Is My Name has magic, mythology, Merlin, and a Morgan le Fay we've never met before. Here, we meet a heroine who staunchly refuses to diminish herself while negotiating the world of powerful and cruel men. With twists and turns around every bend, you will love the journey of this book as much as its destination." --Sharon Emmerichs, Sunday Times bestselling author of Shield Maiden

"Top marks all round for an enthralling new take on the Arthurian legend, beautifully written." --The Times (UK)

"This is the Arthurian legend as you rarely see it: told not by Uther, Arthur or Merlin, or indeed their male champions, but by the complicated woman they condemned. Keetch's Morgan is vulnerable, courageous and defiant. She makes the legend hers, and I can't wait to accompany her on the next part of the journey. For lovers of the untold story, Morgan Is My Name is a convincing and compelling read." --Lucy Holland, author of Sistersong

"Evocative, haunting and utterly addictive, this is a book to lose yourself in." --Tracy Borman, author of The King's Witch

"Keetch's Morgan does not disappoint ... literally fire and a perfect harbinger of the woman Morgan is destined to become!" --Stacey Thomas, author of The Revels
