JOSEPH SCOTT MORGAN
Joseph Scott Morgan is the Distinguished Scholar of Applied Forensics at Jacksonville State University and is considered one of the leading experts on the Coroner System in the United States. During his tenure as the Senior Investigator with the Fulton County Medical Examiner in Atlanta, Georgia, Morgan helped establish the national training guidelines for Medicolegal Death Investigators, and to this day, he remains one of less than 200 people nationwide to attain “Fellow” status through the national board. His memoir, Blood Beneath My Feet: The Journey of a Southern Death Investigator, is the true story of a boy born into the deprivations of a white trash trailer park who as an adult gets further involved in the desperate backdoor sagas of the “new South.”
Roger Johns is a former corporate lawyer and retired college professor with law degrees from Louisiana State University and Boston University. During his nearly two decades as a professor, he served on the editorial staffs of several academic publications and he won numerous awards and recognitions for his teaching and his scholarly writing. Roger was born and raised in Louisiana. He and his wife Julie now live in Georgia. Dark River Rising is his first novel and follows the dangerous pursuits of Wallace Hartman, a smart and fearless female police detective in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Traveling over 12,500 miles on the Atlanta mass transit system inspired and agitated Murray Browne into writing his first work of fiction, Down & Outbound: A Mass Transit Satire (2016). Browne lives in Decatur, Georgia within walking distance of the subway station and was once nominated for a major, mid-level Georgia commuter award. His first book, a collection of essays on book culture, The Book Shopper: A Life in Review was published in 2009. He blogs regularly at thebookshopper.org and his author website is murray-browne.com.
Tyler Key is a singer songwriter currently calling Athens, GA home. As frontman for alt-country rock band Falco Brown, he has opened for acts like the Dirty Guvnahs and the Revivalists, and toured the southeast region the past three years with Falco Brown and as touring keyboardist for up-and-coming Nashville songwriter Lily Rose. With his most recent solo record, Long Run the Fugitives, Tyler has written, according to Signal Conquers Noise “an incredibly impressive album that he made from scratch. He draws influence from several great songwriters and I daresay is able to stand among them on a lot of these songs.”
