R. D. Morgan is the author of six non-fiction books dealing with early day Oklahoma lawmen and outlaws. He has also written numerous articles for Oklahoma newspapers and historical magazines on the subject.
Morgan spent his childhood in the East Texas oil patch country and his teen years living in a small Iowa farming community. Upon graduation from high school, he knocked around a year or so working construction before entering the U.S. Army where he served as a law enforcement officer. After his military career, he attended the College of the Ozarks before being employed as an electrician and maintenance supervisor for many years in Missouri and Arkansas. On retirement, he moved to Oklahoma to fulfill his life-long desire to commit his energies full time into writing and researching depression-era American history. Morgan developed a passion for the subject as a teenager listening to his Grandfather's tales of life and culture in Middle America during the 1920s and 1930s. Morgan and his wife Naomi currently reside in Haskell, Oklahoma.
