Gilbert Morris has done it again-and again-and again. The master of fiction for Christian readers has had more than 70 novels
published, both for adults and young teens, as well as some 25 scholarly articles and 200 poems. Morris draws on his extensive
background in developing this prolific output for readers. He spent ten years as a pastor before becoming Professor of English at
Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas, and he has done postgraduate work at the University of London.
Perhaps best known for the historical series House of Winslow (19 titles at this point), Morris has begun a new series about the
American Revolution entitled The Liberty Bell. In Book 1, Sound the Trumpet, the beginning of the great schism leading to
the formation of our nation was played out in personal conflict between individuals.
Morris writes with a clear vision of the settings and what's happening when and where, but he does not overwhelm readers with
this information. He knows he's writing first and foremost a good story, and readers are caught up in the lives of characters.
Along the way their interest in history is revived.
But what makes Morris so popular with Christian readers is the way he incorporates the decisions for Christ that his characters
face. A pastor, now retired, Morris resists preaching to his readers and concentrates on how men and women react in a particular
situation. He also knows the importance of a good ending.
Gilbert Morris and Lynn Morris are a father/daughter writing team who combine Gilbert's strength of great story plots and adventure with Lynn's research skills and character development.Together they form a powerful duo! Lynn and her daughter live near her parents on the Gulf Coast in Alabama.
Gilbert Morris spent ten years as a pastor before becoming a Professor of
English at Ouachita Batpist University and earning a Ph.D. at the
University of Arkansas. A prolific writer, over the past ten years he has
had more than 20 novels published. His family includes three grown
children, and he and his wife live in Baton Rouge, LA.
