“This little book by Moragh (Mo) Carter is an enjoyable journey through the lives of Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan. I knew their biggest hit “Tennessee Birdwalk” but living in Australia and being young, I knew their hit ,but no more, until quite recently I became friends with Jack and Misty on Facebook. I quickly became a fan of Jack’s wonderful humour and wicked stories of life hanging between fiction and fact. So, when I discovered this biography, I couldn’t resist it. As a musician, one’s goal is success : a hit song. But there is the long road to arriving and, more surprising, the even longer road after a world number one! Struggle. Some quite awful situations present themselves which required presence of mind, effort and good fortune. So Jack and Misty are a good read; a nice romance; an adventure; a chart topping creative stream and a darn nice little book.
My compliments to Moragh on her conveyance of the rough and smooth of their lives. She, as author, is quite transparent usually – faithfully describing her subject with, I think, very little false colouring.
If you know just their hit song or if you’re a serious fan, it’s a nice book to read. I confess I would have liked a bit more because some situations stimulated intrigue and a thirst for a more in depth look but buy it. Honestly. It’s nice.”
Thank you, Michael from Australia.

About moraghsblog

I started writing seriously after I was widowed in 2004, though I'd had the occasional article or letter published in various newsletters or magazines before then. I first started entering poetry contests in December 2010 and I have had several poems published in various anthologies. I have almost completed a comprehensive creative writing course, but the last two modules have been put on hold for now, due to lack of time and a spell of ill-health. This course is designed to teach their students how to write to a standard that will enable them to sell their work to magazine editors. My first paid article was in the Guardian weekend family supplement in December 2011, and I have had several articles successfully published in a variety of magazines since then. During 2012, I took time out from my course to complete the biography of country music stars, Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan from Florida. I met Jack and Misty in 2007, two years after I started corresponding with them via e-mail. My book 'In Harmony' was published in December that year. Apart from my writing, I enjoy going to country music gigs and festivals. I also love travelling, especially to the USA, where I have made a huge number of friends. I also have some family members who live there. I have recently started a new blog, telling of my travels and adventures in the USA.
