SIDELIGHTS: T.R. Wilson is a novelist, both under his own name and under the pseudonym Jude Morgan. In an interview for Peterborough Today, Wilson confessed that he published his favorite book, Passion: A Novel of the Romantic Poets, under the Jude Morgan pseudonym, and described the novel as a "labour of love."

Passion tells the story of the early nineteenth-century poetic giants, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and John Keats, through the eyes of the women in their lives. Jennifer Reese, writing for Entertainment Weekly, claimed that the "lustrous historical romance [is] packed with gargantuan characters, legendary scandals, tragedy, and … passion." Writing in the Christian Science Monitor, Yvonne Zipp noted that "some readers may find the early pages slow … but the wealth of detail and Morgan's amazing ability to re-create what these women might have thought and felt are worth savoring." A reviewer in Publishers Weekly summarized Passion by saying that Morgan "brings a fascinating past to brilliant light" with his "carefully researched, deeply imagined, and gorgeously written novel."
