About Paul Morrison

Paul Morrison has been a writer for most of his life. “I cannot remember a time when I was not writing, even when I was five or six years old. I grew up on books such as Treasure Island, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and The Time Machine — these and the many other books that I read in my early years fed my imagination, a voracious imagination transporting me to faraway places, other worlds and to other times in both the recent and more distant past...” Many of these worlds and places are visited in the novels and short story collections he has written.
Besides a love for fiction, Paul also reads widely on ancient history and archaeology. “I am particularly interested in Ancient Egypt, mainly Old Kingdom Egypt during the age of the pyramid builders. I was always intrigued as to how the pyramids were built and about the lives of the pharaohs as well as the workers who constructed the pyramids. There were many questions filling my mind, but few if any answers.” This inquiring interest led to the Giza Trilogy books, a monumental work of well-researched fiction set against the backdrop of the three pyramids on the Giza Plateau. Together, with their associated books, The Divine Light (currently being written) and the completed, Eternal Egypt, Supplement to the Giza Trilogy, these books total more than one million words! Other books written cover a wide range of subjects including historical, science fiction, ghost and detective stories as well as many other genres.
Paul currently lives in Hobart, Tasmania with his wife in a house overlooking the Derwent River. “The magnificent views of Hobart and of Mount Wellington inspire me in my writings — but the most important inspiration is my wife, Helena.”

Review on Loyal and Steadfast – The Story of HMS Consort
Setting Place: The Far East
Setting Time: Post World War II
Story Format: Personal accounts by the officers and sailors that served in the ship.
Compiled and formatted into a free flowing narrative.
The Review
This is not fiction but real content narrated by the very men who served in the ship. It is certainly a very interesting piece of naval history that tells the point of view of the sailors, how they saw the events in which they were involved developing and affecting their lives.
The purpose of the book seems to give voice to all those who devoted their lives to this intriguing career as well as to show them as the actors of such developments. It is a small piece of maritime history and a testimony to those who created this history.
