James Morgan is a freelance copywriter, author and orthodox (some would say boring) opening batsman. He’s written TV and radio scripts for noted cricketing luminaries Carol Vorderman and Caroline Quentin, ghost written articles for celebrity chef Brian Turner, and composed an academic book about the concept of US imperialism that will surely change the world (that’s if the sales figures ever reach double digits).

He has taught modern American history at Southampton University, but his real area of expertise is the cover drive. Email james@thefulltoss.com
