About this author

D.E. Morris has been a sci-fi/fantasy geek since he first flew down the Death Star trench with Luke and trudged the weary road to Mordor with Frodo.

I was watching some "Doctor Who at the Proms" on YouTube, and I just had to screen grab this shot of the audience:



It makes me smile. :)

I just love to see imagination being fostered in a child, especially when it's a parent passing it on to their kid!

Science Fiction is what engaged me as a youngster and continues to inspire me today.

Pass it on!

A clever take on the vampire genre.

"The Eyes of the Sun" is an engaging story about vampires and vampire hunters. However, it's not a world were vampires are born, but rather created through genetic manipulation. It's a fun twist to add to the vampir
