Much to the amazement of the literary world and the public, little is known about the elusive author, J. Morgan McGrady. Only her tennis teammates at Cedarway Country Club and a few folks at the local shooting range claim to know the eccentric woman. At the age of five, J. Morgan was abandoned at a rundown trailer park near the rural town of Bug Tussle, Texas. She was raised by an elderly woman, Zig-Zag, the owner of a feed store off I- 35. An accomplished comic and satirist, McGrady fostered her writing skills at a young age by first penning humorous stories and unsubstantiated rumors on bathroom doors at truck stops and honkytonks. Later she was accepted, albeit blackmailing the dean of admissions, to Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. It’s a Ball is J. Morgan McGrady’s debut novel, however she is completing two more humorous books about her world travels and ranch life in the Texas Hill Country. Currently, J. Morgan and her husband are living in Austin, Texas with their blind kangaroo, Sheila and dachshund, Fred. Find out more on her blog here.
