Book 3: There Was a Crooked Man

Available 03/16/20! 

 Available here as a signed author copy, or on, Barnes and Noble, Apple books, i-book etc.  


There Was A Crooked Man begins as a Cinderella story. But. like any good fairy tale, there is always a monster.  

What if that monster systematically destroys your choices and devours your self-worth?

What if you finally find a way to run?

           ...but you have only a three-hour head start?

           ...and end up stranded less than one hundred miles from home?\

What if three individual women unknowingly challenge you to see yourself for who you could be?  What if, in order to save your new life, you purposely put yourself in the monster's one last time?   

What price would you pay to live a life finally built on truth? 

 Fast-paced, multiple point of view, and an ending that seems ripped from today's newspaper. 


 "A psychological thriller at its best, There Was a Crooked Man by Katrina Morgan is a spellbinding story exploring manipulation, domestic abuse, and what a narcissistic man will do to keep a woman a victim of his caprices" ~Christian Sia, Reader's Favorite  

"The tension rides heavily on every page and Katie becomes so humanized as a developed character that I genuinely connected in a way that's rare for me, particularly when reading a book where, in the back of my mind, I wonder how reliable the protagonist is. It's the final scenes that take the cake, though...with enough drama to keep even the most prolific readers on the edge of their armchairs."  ~Jamie Michele, Readers Favorite

"Katrina Morgan’s There Was a Crooked Man is a story with a powerful message that only an individual can give another person the power to hurt them so deeply." ~Ruffina Oserio, Reader's Favorite   


Book 1: Echoes in the Walls

 The true and hysterical story of selling a new home to tackle a derelict 1840's Farmhouse in the country. 

An old house awakens long-forgotten dreams, and the wheels of change are set in motion. Unfortunately, the idyllic dreams turn to nightmares quickly. Nothing is what it seems--Obstacles litter the path and friends and family see only 

imminent disaster. 

Raccoons in a bedroom, bats in the attic, bones in the basement, and a sinister presence. None of these were part of the plan. It becomes a harrowing--sometimes hilarious,sometimes frightening--roller-coaster -of-a-ride. As the house endures monumental changes, the family must evolve as well.   In finding the humor, they learn to wear life's bruises proudly. 


 Book 2: These Animals Are Killing Me 

A Year of Ridiculous Interruptions - Courtesy of Pesky Wildlife, Quirky Pets and Two-Legged Mammals 

​​Follow a typical chaotic, over-scheduled family through a year of unexpected and humorous true life interruptions. Beginning with the first day of school, the book moves through various scenarios; over scheduled days, disastrous doctor visits, harried trips to the veterinarian, school obligations, the truth behind decorating for the holidays, Mars and Venus moments, family vacation, loss of family pets, and even the absurd things we do to avoid getting older. 

The beloved pets insert themselves daily, creating more havoc than they're worth. The local wildlife saunter in and out of their property with far too much regularity causing upsets, injury, fear and hysterical outcomes.
