About Paul Morrison

Paul Morrison
Paul Morrison is a historian and a museologist who was born in Tasmania, Australia in 1953. He had to wait for a long time till he could dedicate entirely to his writing career. Sharing his time between his work in Sydney and a private Museum he co-founded with his brother, he kept writing and researching for the series and trilogies he is now free to produce.
After publishing his stories in The Quarterly Reader and also editing the museum newsletter, the Lower Deck he was invited to compile and write the History of HMS Consort, a post-World War II destroyer, entitled Loyal and Steadfast. While researching and acquiring artifacts for the museum Paul kept producing his collected series which he now re-publishes in an e-book format.
In 2009, Paul finally retired from his full time work in Sydney and got a Leave from the Museum in order to move to Brazil to marry his girlfriend. Being retired, he could also start his research trips around the world. His first trilogy came after three long years and is a historical fiction work that tells the epic saga of the Giza Plateau, the construction of the pyramids and the life of the Great Pharaohs of the IV Dynasty.
After finishing his trilogy he came back to Australia and published the first book, The Pharaoh which is about the life and times of Pharaoh Khufu. The first printed book of the trilogy is available at his site and also at the book signings also announced at the site.
The present project involves the launching of the already printed books in the e-book format and at the moment Paul is developing his last book on the Giza Plateau, a companion book to the trilogy he finished writing in 2012. Parallel to these developments Paul is committed to the Series called the Pacific Navigators which is well developed and will be soon released. He is also currently working on the America Series as well as his science fiction series to be released in the next few years. Paul is a prolific writer who writes more than three thousand words a day and in his in-house publishing company works to prepare his books and distribute them.
The Sand God and The Time Traveller are also being launched in e-book format and according to Paul these books were developed while he was working to publish the first book of his Giza Trilogy. They were both written in Australia where Paul is now living with his wife.

Review by: helen rochefort on Oct. 10, 2013 : star star star star star
Review on The Sand God – A novel from Ancient Egypt
Setting Place: Ancient Egypt
Setting Time: 1574 BC /1478 BC
Main Characters: Hori, The Sand God, Pharaoh Seqenenre Tao, Ahmose, Pharaoh Kamose, Neferkare, General Merneptah, Osiris the boy, Intef, Queen Aahotep
Summary of the Story
This is a time of turmoil in the history of Ancient Egypt. The struggle to expel the invaders leads the Pharaoh and the people to think about a new God as they believe the old gods have abandoned them.
The Review
Everybody dreams of achieving something and due to faith or this hope that feeds the religious soul, an idea can become a dangerous weapon, causing the mind to accept the most bizarre beliefs in order to achieve a goal. The strange and complex behaviour of man facing the loss and the anguish of oppression leads to chaos but can also buy some victories. All the events in the story are carefully planned to show the struggle behind the war and the constant fight against Egypt’s enemy. The author leads us to think of all these values and constantly surprises the reader whether he or she sides with Hori, with Neferkare or is simply curious about the fate of Egypt.
