Chapter One: Morgan

Rate this book
Morgan O’Connor could be the girl next door, if the girl next door had mental problems. Hiding behind a camera in a vain attempt to mask volatile emotions and an overdeveloped sense of empathy, Morgan’s interactions with the world are strained – and often hilarious.

Mirroring her life, Morgan’s Chapter One finds her acting more as a peripheral character than a main one at times. She is an observer and easy to forget . . . until she chooses to jump to the forefront and make you remember her.

This is Volume 2 in the Chapter One Short Story Series.

"Chapter Ones" are the featured character's defining moment, the start of his or her story. And each connects to and advances the others, culminating in an ending that will leave you wanting more.

Readers will be invited to vote at the end of the series and decide which character’s Chapter One becomes its own book. Or maybe Chapter Two will follow.

The story is based in the heart of Boston; Charlestown, Massachusetts. And it follows the lives of two extended Irish Catholic families, spanning three generations, and the events that shape them. Strong language, strong emotions and stronger truths – do not read unless prepared to be shocked, cry and laugh out loud.

About the author

Knowing how to write takes much more than ‘going to school’ for it – as many shitty writing degree graduates prove. But sharing that I have a B.A. in English and Writing encourages some folks to read my stuff, so there you go. I guess they assume I’ll know the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re,’ for example. And they’re right.

​I write to release and to remember - and to make people see.

See what?

Neither side of the socioeconomic spectrum understands the other – and as an insider and an outsider in each depending on the day, it really grinds my gears. I often have awkward interactions, with friends from either side making assumptions that just don’t fit . . . because they can’t see. Or maybe they can and just choose not to. I like to make my own assumptions there.
