While in college he worked as a truck driver, a sponsored sports car race driver, archeologist's assistant and ghostwriter.

Before hopping a freight train at fifteen out of a mid-western state he was employed as a newsboy, strawberry picker and crow hunter.


After a couple of decades knocking around boardrooms and back alleys from Beijing to Zagreb, Morgan now spends his time writing, traveling and continuing as a lifelong student of almost everything. He has read a hundred or so books a year since childhood, enjoys French wine and greets every day as an adventure.

    more from this reviewer

    I was leery about reading this book

    since I'm Mexican on my mom's side and still have family there and have lived there myself. I thought - Oh great, another writer who took a vacation there and wants to use it as background for a story. Well, I was very pleasantly surprised. The Spanish was authentic and easily worked into the story. The descriptions of people, places, and the different cultures were well-done. To top it all off, it was solid writing with a great page-turning story. If you like thrillers with an intriguing plot and characters, you'll want to read this!

    'The Jaguar' s Heart' is a winner!

    Too many thrillers these days are just a rehash of a basic formula, but not so ' The Jaguar's Heart'. This book takes elements of mystery, ideas of the occult, adds a touch of political intrigue and combines them into an action packed thrill ride. Hero Jesse Rideout is hiding in Mexico after a botched assignment puts a price on his head. What follows is an adventure that putts Indiana Jones to shame, while keeping true to tradecraft and weapon handling that would please the most cynical of ' operator'. This combined with the author' s love affair with Mexico and its people make this a wonderful novel on many levels. Iwill warn you that reading ' Jaguar's' can be bittersweet: I found myself so involved that I couldn't put it down, but upon completion, I was sorry that the story was finished.
