Terry Morgan

Biography

Terry Morgan has been writing stories and poetry for over twenty five years, mostly while he “lived out of a suitcase”, travelling with his own exporting business. With over seventy countries under his belt he lives with his Thai wife, Yung, in Petchabun, Thailand with occasional visits back to a second home in the Cotswold valleys around Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK.
He writes novels with a strong international flavor, politically controversial shorter novels and less serious political satire and humor.

Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It's given me a platform - a site to point readers to.
And the uploading system is so straightforward - I make a few errors now & again but all my fault and soon fixed.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I'm not a great small talker, preferring to think before I open my mouth.
Sometimes I probably think too much, but writing releases feeling, emotion, experience. You can never correct words spoken aloud. What's said is said. Writing gves you a chance to think before you put something on the record.
I'm a serious sort of writer but I've written things that make me laugh and cry as I'm writing.
In fact if I go back to my first novel, "An Old Spy Story" there are parts in there that still make me laugh and cry and I know from the reviews and comments I've received that it has had the same effect on others. Just check out my website and see the reviews for "An Old Spy Story."
The greatest joy of writing is describing about people's thoughts, their emotions and their feelings. No video or movie can ever do that in quite the same way, which is why I try to encourage young people to read more.
