"Deborah Morgan's witty debut is a deft blend of mystery, mayhem, and
most terrifying of all, the antics of the antique world.
I look forward to sleuthing and antiquing with Jeffrey Talbot again soon."
                                                                             
--Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author

tease the treasure hunter in every reader."

"Deborah Morgan...should give lessons on the correct way to write
an amateur sleuth mystery."

Antique-Lover's Mystery Series), click
HERE. Also in the Jeff Talbot section, you'll find
bits of info about
Greer (their butler), Blanche Appleby (owner of All Things Old)

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.
