What Lies Within ~ 2015
Thank you for taking your time for me ~
Who are your influences?
I was introduced to books at a young age, but the two authors that made the biggest impression on me were Ray Bradbury and Stephen King. Ray was the first author where words came to life. And Stephen King is a master storyteller. Nowadays, I read voraciously in nearly all genres.
When did you begin writing?
I wrote lots of bad short stories as young as elementary school. And even more bad stories in high school. After college, I moved out to Los Angeles and worked as a TV writer after toiling in lots of bad jobs. I love teleplays and the use of sound and juxtaposition, but there’s nothing more pure and direct than the relationship between a reader and a writer.
How do you come up with your stories, characters, character names, POV, etc?
I have since entered the digital world and worked with companies such as NBC.com and the health care industry copywriting, blogging and editing.
I have also taught screenwriting at UCLA Extension, which focused on the art of short films, where through lectures, assignments and screenings, I guided students towards the completion of a short script.
I continue to learn about the ever-evolving world of social and content marketing, and my goal is to take my love of storytelling and help corporations tell their own stories, as well as continuing to write my own.

Feel Me Fall
An interview with James Morris
✒ ✒ ✒ ✒ ✒ ✒
President Lincoln was a national hero – or so we believe. But the truth is more disturbing. When a visitor from a distant planet arrives during the height of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln enlists him to save the Union. But at what cost?
In Initiation, a young boy on the cusp of puberty realizes he is changing in more ways than one.
And in Crash, a woman finds an unexpected ally at work with deadly consequences.
Abraham Lincoln Must Die & Two Other Tales invites you see the world in totally unexpected and terrifying ways.
