Morgan Murray (he/him) is a settler from the same backwoods central Alberta village as figure-skating legend Kurt Browning (Caroline, AB in Treaty 6 territory). He now lives in the backwoods of Cape Breton (Unama’ki) with his wife, cartoonist Kate Beaton, and their little family.

His first novel, DIRTY BIRDS has been compared to Kurt Vonnegut, and has been a finalist for the Leacock Medal for Humour, longlisted for CBC Canada Reads 2021, a finalist for three Atlantic Book Awards (winning the Best Atlantic Published Book), shortlisted for the ReLit Awards, won a Forewords Indies International Award for Humour, was a finalist for three Eric Hoffer Literary Awards, and won the 2022 IPPY Independent Voice Award.
