L J Morris is an author with a love of books and storytelling that he developed as a child. After a career in the Royal Navy, which spanned most of the 80s and 90s, he settled back in the North
of England, and soon realised that an unsuccessful attempt to write a serial killer novel at the age of 12 hadn’t blunted his ambitions.
He started to write again and has enjoyed success with his short stories appearing in several anthologies. ‘Blood on Their Hands’ and ‘Cold Redemption’ were published in Volumes 1 & 2 of Bestselling 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”
Although he still enjoys writing short stories, his dream has always been to write thriller novels and he has spent the last few years following that dream.
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.
