Carol Morgan

Goodreads Author

in Lubbock, Texas, The United States



Member Since
July 2009


The sleepy, dusty town of Lubbock, Texas in the late fifties was the perfect incubator for a shy and imaginative child with big dreams of becoming a writer. Carol Morgan spent thirty years working in education, and then embarked upon a second career as a college and career counselor. When she ran as the Democratic candidate for the Texas House, she became hopelessly addicted to Texas politics and has never recovered. Carol is a liberal political blogger for the Lubbock Avalanche Journal as well as a freelance writer for Houston Press and Metroleader News. She is also the award-winning author of a historical fiction, Of Tapestry, Time and Tears.

Carol’s Recent Updates

Franz Kafka
“We need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us.”
Franz Kafka

James A. Michener
“I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.”
James Michener

“The essence of writing? A hound chasing a fox: irrationally compelled to win the prize and eventual disappointment that it's eluded you.”
Carol Morgan

Ray Bradbury
“The good writers touch life often. The mediocre ones run a quick hand over her. The bad ones rape her and leave her for the flies.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Herman Melville
“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”
Herman Melville
