L J Morris is an author with a love of books and storytelling that he developed as a child. Although he was born in Cold War, West Germany, he grew up in the North of England and had a typical working class childhood. He left school at 16 and spent most of the 80s and 90s serving in the Royal Navy as a Weapons Engineer, before settling back in Cumbria where he still works in the defence industry.
After leaving the military, he soon realised that an unsuccessful attempt to write a serial killer novel at the age of 12 hadn’t blunted his ambition and he started to write again. His short stories have appeared in several anthologies. ‘Blood on Their Hands’ and ‘Cold Redemption’ were published in Volumes 1 & 2 of Best-selling author Matt Hilton's anthology series ‘ACTION: Pulse Pounding Tales’.
Other anthologies he has appeared in include ‘Happily Never After’, ‘Wish You Weren’t Here’, and ‘Liminal Time, Liminal Space’ where one reader described his tale ‘True Colours’ as “Riveting and powerful”
His debut novel ‘Desperate Ground’ was published by Bloodhound books in 2018 with the sequel ‘Hunting Ground’ following in 2019.
He is currently working on Ali Sinclair Book 3 and Book 1 in a new series.
