This is Lucas Morgan’s bio, in his own words:

Lucas MorganI was born 6/7/82 in West Texas. I grew up moving all over Texas and New York. My parents split up when I was young, because of drugs and alcohol. I soon found drugs and alcohol a major part of my life.

Now I am drug free and a volunteer reporter for “The Echo,” a Texas prison newspaper. I love to write and learn. I am in college to get a degree in business management.

Alcohol and drugs played a big part of me getting a 25-year sentence for murder. I killed someone I love, because I was too high and drunk to think. I hate drugs.

I now want to help people. I know Prison Writers will help a lot of prisoners that are forced to endure things no person should. I look forward to being able to help in any way I can.
