Hi! I'm Morgan Tarpley. Welcome!

World traveler…the title conjures iconic images of Indiana Jones amid thick jungle terrain, James Bond lurking in the shadows of a third-world marketplace, and Lara Croft linking ancient secrets to a Asian temple. It also brings to mind real-life travelers and adventurers such as Jacques Cousteau, Howard Carter, and Amelia Earhart, among many others.

Whether fiction or reality, we find ourselves intrigued by these stories teeming with adventure, romance, and unforgettable locales. I hope to deliver not only these elements in my writing but weave them between the past and present surrounded in history and testaments of faith.

To me my passion for globetrotting, writing, and serving Jesus Christ go hand in hand. It is my faith, travels, and love of history that form the backbone of my writing. Being blessed to visit over a dozen countries, my stories are enthused with first-hand accounts and meticulously researched historical facts. Through my writing, I hope readers can explore the globe from wherever they are while also deepening their understanding of major historic events, fascinating cultures, and a faith in God. 

To read my writing, visit my travel and writing blog, “Pens on World Map,” or check out my Writing page.

Feel free to comment on this site, send me a message through e-mail, or connect with me through social media - Facebook, Twitter, or Goodreads.

God Bless and Happy Travels,


Historical Fiction That Travels

Historical and modern-day story lines laced with faith and set across the world
