JUNCTION
A Short Story Collection

Crossroad Press is publishing a collection of twelve Deborah Morgan short stories--two of which will appear for the first time in this collection.

JUNCTION offers a look at Morgan's versatile characters, from FBI agent turned antiques buff Jeff Talbot to Detroit's hard-boiled P.I. Mary Shelley, along with a motley and indomitable cast of characters found in the old--and changing--west.

Also included is an introduction by multi-award-winning author
Loren D. Estleman.

JUNCTION will publish first in e-book format, followed by a print version. Watch here for details.

STATE TYPING CONTEST

While in high school, Morgan placed fifth in the Oklahoma State Typing Contest. Since contestants were required to compete on manual typewriters (remember, this was in the late sixties), Morgan trained on them while the rest of her typing class used electrics. Even with that handicap, she was the fastest typist at her school.

NAME THAT BIZ CONTEST

In the late 1980s, Morgan won
a "Name that Business" contest in her hometown.
