Frank Morriss

     Frank Morriss says that his early interest in reading, especially the stories of Barrie, Kipling, Stevenson, Hugh Lofting, and other writers led to his career as an author. Born in California in 1923, Frank Morriss graduated from Regis College in Denver in 1943. He then served in the U.S. Army in the South Pacific, the Philippine Islands and Japan between 1943 and 1945, and was the recipient of South Pacific campaign ribbons. After the war, he continued in his education with a law degree and a doctorate, going on to work as an editor, journalist, writer and instructor of English and philosophy. Mr. Morriss’ books for young people reflect his love of his faith and his country, as well as his wish to remind readers that freedom is a valuable gift, not one ever to take for granted.

      He is author of the book Alfred of Wessex.
