About the Author: Morgan True Blum

Morgan True Blum was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, the youngest child in a highly creative family. From an early age she was drawn to creative pursuits, primarily writing, art, and acting. As an author Morgan strives to combine all these disciplines into creating vivid and stimulating worlds for her Young Adult Fantasy novels. In addition to writing, Morgan illustrates her own covers, and narrates her own audiobooks.

Morgan began outlining her first book, The Breadwinner, at the age of 18, after moving to the Bay Area of Houston, where the ocean was always nearby, filling her mind with dreams of mermaids, and sea serpents. This combined with her passion for history, and Russian culture, was a recipe for what she considers her passion projects for the past several years.

Today Morgan resides happily in Houston with her beloved husband, and many, many pets.

In 1924, Pasha Chevalsky is a sixteen-year-old Russian immigrant struggling to make it in New York City's Lower East Side. Forced to leave his home by invading Soviet forces, Pasha lives in a tenement house and cares for his widowed mother and sickly younger sister. As if being a poor immigrant wasn't bad enough, Pasha sold himself to a street gang known as the Breadwinners to help support his family. Pasha, who is gentle by nature, is forced to street fight, steal, and bootleg to earn a living. As much as he despises being a Breadwinner, he can never leave, for desertion is punishable by death. Fortunately for Pasha, his luck changes when the mythical Firebird appears and the impossible invades his life. Pasha encounters fire breathers in Central Park, strange dreams, a gypsy circus in Grand Central Terminal, and ultimately a meeting with a peculiar man named Staccato Nimbus who claims Pasha is the lost heir to an ancient throne in another world.
