During 2013 and 2014, Kaya represented Suzan Lewis, daughter of entertainment icon, Jerry Lewis, on her upcoming book, Jerry Lewis, My Father — Is Always In My Mirror. As co-author, this stunning memoir tells a unique story of growing up in the heart of NYC during the 50s and 60s when celebrities, politicians, and their favorite haunts dominated the social scene.

Morgan has worked directly with sponsors and celebrities involved in the project.

Having worked with the rich and famous for most of her adult life, Morgan began her career with a lucrative modeling offer from the Mitsubishi Corporation in Japan. This led to a highly successful fashion career combined with extensive travel throughout Asia, Europe and the South Pacific.

After moving to Hawaii in the 1980s, Morgan embarked upon a distinguished career in the publishing industry spanning almost 20 years as a world-class publisher with over 12 premiere magazines and books to her credit, including the 224-page, hardcover, hotel in-room guidebook, The HawaiiGuide, featuring Tom Selleck. As the official publisher for the PGA in Hawaii, she created a comprehensive, full-color, 242-page, coffee table book, the celebrated Hawaii Guide to Golf showcasing both private and public courses throughout the islands.

By 1993, Island Home had received New York’s esteemed "Magazine Publishing Excellence Award" as the best "home" magazine in the nation, as well as the coveted "Media Award" from the American Society of Interior Designers (A.S.I.D.).
