Max Morgan

Biography

Worked as go-fer, mortician's assistant, business consultant, teacher, head hunter, fund raiser, (and a few other nondescript things) but not in any particular order. Fondness for long hikes and communing with nature. Interested in the kind of philosophy no one reads outside of university philosophy departments. Would prefer to live in the eighteenth century, if I weren't a peasant (as a blacksmith would be nice). Non-technological (don't own a cell phone). I think my TV set has tubes but I never looked. Trying to find a good typewriter. Can be reached at maxmorgan555@gmail.com

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
A medium-sized town in the Northeast. I can't say that it has had any effect upon my writing. Nothing I write about specifically concerns anything about such towns. Nor do I avoid such things because of a negative influence. So, it's neutral.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Finishing it. It's darn hard work! Still, I must get some kind of pleasure out of it or I wouldn't do it. Maybe it's the control. It's the closest one can get to creating his own universe, even if it's only imaginary.

Books

Kyrie Eleison
Price: $2.95 USD. Words: 22,820. Language: English. Published: January 2, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Thriller & suspense » General
Fred, a man of Faith, learns there's no hierarchy among the gods and they don't all play by the same rules.

An exploration in the philosophy of mind, Alpha considers what it takes to be a mind. Might there be different types and, if so, what kinds of worlds do they "create?" What can minds do; what can't they? The work further considers the epistemological implications of all this in areas of scientific endeavor. A fall-out from all this is a question of the future of minds as we know them.
