“Crimes of Greed”

Det. Matt Conley and Det. Mike Morgovnik , both in APD’s Financial Crimes Unit and on the US Secret Service’s Central Texas Financial Crimes Task force

MoneyAre you writing about bank fraud? Money laundering? Cybercrimes? We are honored to have two veteran APD officers speak at our Sunday, May 19 Sisters in Crime Meeting.  These two public servants have plenty of stories to tell, and incredible amount of experience in Financial Crimes.  They’re the guys who can answer your questions with authority.

Detective/TFO Matt Conley has been with the Austin Police Department since 2001. After five years of working patrol in Central East Austin, Detective Conley was promoted to Detective. For the last ten years he has served in the Financial Crimes Unit, and eight years ago was assigned to the US Secret Service’s Central Texas Financial Crimes Task Force.  Due to that assignment, he is also deputized as a Federal Agent by the US Marshal’s Service as a Deputy Marshal.

Detective Mike Morgovnik has been with the Austin Police Department since 1997. He cut his teeth working patrol in Central West Austin and the Downtown Area Command for nine years. He has been a Detective in the Financial Crimes Unit for nine years, and also served the last four years with the US Secret Service’s Central Texas Financial Crimes Task Force.

This is your chance to hear from the pros on these ever-growing crimes.



We are revamping our newsletter and we could use your help.  We will be including articles written by our members and hope to multiple monthly columns.  I will be writing a monthly column about the life of the Indie Author (covering subjects like ISBNs, Covers, Software, Library of Congress, and more). We’d love to have a few more monthly columns, like grammar tips, marketing tips, tips on tips! If  you are interested in volunteering to write an article or “lord over” a monthly column, please email me at
