Stephen Morris, a former resident of Cave Creek (and a former editor of Sonoran News 1995) has published his second book with Amazon. Titled “Methuselah’s Memoirs” the book is a fictional account of a family that lived in the times just before the great flood predicted by Noah.
"Methuselah is dead!" Lemek heard this cry as he crossed the public marketplace in Benkane City. He knew the ancient man of 969 years, was the grandfather of Noah. He also knew that a scribe had been recording the old man's sayings for many years. "What a fortune I could make if I could buy the scrolls and publish them," Lemek thought. So began the great quest to obtain the memoirs of Methuselah...
“S. R. Morris is an easy author to like,” comments Stephen Chavez, Editor of Adventist Review. “His stories are simple, well-written, and packed with meaning. The spiritual lessons he draws are a wonderful antidote to the cynicism and skepticism of our age.”
Morris is an established author who has published dozens of true stories and articles in a variety of newspaper and magazines nationwide, but this is his first fiction book. A former reporter/editor and a teacher of nearly 20 years, Morris enjoys writing true inspirational stories.
His first book titled “My Father Sang to Me & 13 Other True Inspirational Stories” was released last year as a Kindle book and as a paperback. Some of the stories include unique titles and extraordinary experiences. Chapter titles include Holy Joe & the Religious Fanatic, Miracles in the Desert, Fourteen Days in the Brig, The Atheist & His Wife, Running On Empty and My Father Sang to Me.
The new book (released April 2014) is already being considered by a Christian film maker as a movie. Both books are available at amazon.com for $2.99 as a Kindle book or $7.99 as a paperback. Morris currently lives in the Philippines with his wife and adopted daughter.
