I have something really cool to show you today!
My great grandfather, Verne Morgan, was an author and playwright. Yesterday’s Sunshine is his autobiography, and this is a copy of the first edition hardback that he signed for his daughter, my grandmother.
My aunt brought this copy for me from England (it’s been with my grandparents), and I’m SO excited (and weirdly emotional!) to be able to hold in my hands a 40+ year old book that contains not just history, but MY history, and reminds me that a love of stories has been in my family for generations.
P.S. The name “Morgan” shows up on both sides of my family tree, which is why my parents gave it to me as a middle name. When it came to deciding what name to write under, the choice was easy. Morgan seemed a fitting pen name to use, given its literary history in my family 🙂
