"In the pages of 'Graceful Agony' is a beautifully written journey of deep and intimate memoirs soon after the authors' diagnosis with Fibro, chronic pain, and fatigue. It is a memoir filled with pure perseverance and inspiration."


As per "National Fibromyalgia Association," fibromyalgia is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases. In America, an average of ten million people yearly suffer from this disease. It counts for 6-10% of our population with women making up 75% of this statistic. Deb Morgan aims to change this dynamic.

In what seemed like a blink of an eye, her life as she knew it was over. Reading this book, the author shows us the path through a relentless battle for some normalcy in a new life of illnesses. Just as her days turn into years of constant pain and grinding fatigue, the continuing challenges of living with an ever-evolving way of life. She shares that being diagnosed with Fibro, chronic pain, and fatigue is not a death sentence. Through her experiences living with Fibro since 2005, she shares many vital messages and her deepest thoughts and memoirs about living with this disease.

Readers, be inspired by her triumphs, perseverance, and advocacy, while her intentions and goals in writing this book are to help others with support, have a conversation to bring more awareness about fibro while sharing with others that you are not alone, you are not another statistic, and you no longer need to suffer in silence.

Interview with Deb Morgan

    What is your schedule like when you’re writing a book?

    I am not the organized, build-a-writers-board type of writer I am a Late night to an early-morning writer who waits for my memory to work at the same speed that my brain thinks. It is a juggling act of mass proportions.

    Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?

    With the type of books I put out, I have always thought I should write my truth in my name.

    Have you ever gotten reader’s block?

    Yes, and I think I would rather have writer’s block. I will read something repeatedly, and it just doesn't seem to sink in, I hate that feeling of ground-hog day.

    Does your family support your career as a writer?

    They support me, but I think some of them don’t understand why I would want to put the ugly truths out in the world. Others understand that it may help someone else in a similar situation.

    How many hours a day do you write?

    I don’t pick a time frame I don’t write like that it helps not to put that deadline pressure on myself. When I write, I can write for 2-5 hours at a time. Otherwise, I may dictate portions of things as I remember them or write small amounts of text down to add it later.

    If you could invite any three people for dinner, whom would you invite?

    I have answered this in my head more than once, and it keeps changing. But currently, I would invite Thomas Jefferson, Maya Angelou, and Stephen King. I can only imagine the different conversations that could come out of that meal.

    Would you share something about yourself that your readers don’t know (yet)?

    I faced 20 years in prison for addiction-related fraud

    Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

    Original, I believe that my work would not be the same if I didn’t tell the real story, besides the fact that the real stories are crazy enough.

    How do you celebrate when you finish your book?

    I just wanted to hold my book in my hand and see my name out in the world as an author. It truly was enough for me.

    If you could be mentored by a famous author, who would it be?

    Joan Didion
