Digital / Audio / Print Books for a new generation
Tee Morris has been writing adventures in far-off lands and far-off worlds since elementary school. Inspired by numerous Choose Your Own Adventure titles and Terry Brooks’ Shannara series, he wrote not-so-short short stories of his own, unaware that working on a typewriter when sick-from-school and, later, on a computer (which was a lot quieter…that meant more time to write at night…) would pave a way for his writings.
His first published work was at James Madison University where he received his degree in Mass Communications and Theatre. In 1990, during his semester abroad in England, Tee covered London’s Poll Tax Riots for JMU’s newspaper, The Breeze. While an accomplishment, writing—whether it was journalism or fiction—was just a fun departure from his first love: Theatre.
“I always saw myself as an actor. Still do. I continue to enjoy the new and exciting experiences that my writing has introduced me to, but I do miss taking the stage. As a writer, I try to find excuses to bring in that theatre training. I learned a great deal as an actor, and those experiences give me an advantage to writing dialog, creating characters, and setting locations and moods. That’s what acting and writing are all about: telling a good story.”
