Perry was born and raised in the greater Salt Lake City, Utah area. He is very happily married and has seven wonderful children and two grand-children.

Perry's first exposure to the great world of fantasy literature was, of course, J.R.R Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, when he was fourteen. After that, he read the books of Patricia McKillap, Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Stephen R. Donaldson, etc...Currently his favorite author is Brandon Sanderson. He loves the unique and interesting magic systems Brandon creates, the memorable characters and interesting stories.

Perry actually began writing the Lemurian Chronicles in 1993, and after more than two decades of rewrites, editing, re-editing, etc... finally decided to “take the plunge” an

I also have the outline for the series, so I know the events that have to occur. Having all this information makes it so I don't get writers block. I know the characters so well that they practically write themselves. Because I have a summary of events that have to occur, I just go from one scene to the next and write what the characters in that situation would naturally do.(less)

I love feedback from my readers. It's really fun to see what characters they relate to, and what their favorite scenes are.

Hopefully, the day will come when I can support myself solely by my books, and then the answer will include being self employed.(less)

Children of the Blessing by Perry Morris
"I enjoyed this immensely. The characters are well rounded, even though the cast is huge. It reminds me of Fiest more than anything, although it has flavours of Tolkien and a few others. Definitely worth the read."

A lot of great stuff in this book. The relationship between Cetti and Sera is great, and I really enjoyed the discovery of who the tall ghost is and how Cetti was able to conquer. The twist with Sera at the end was sad, but you have to get your chara ...more

“Sometimes in life you have to make difficult choices. The best time to make those choices is before you're confronted with them.”
Perry Morris, Children of the Blessing

“Sometimes in life you have to make difficult choices. The best time to make those choices is before you're confronted with them.”
Perry Morris, Children of the Blessing

“Walking the stacks in a library, dragging your fingers across the spines -- it's hard not to feel the presence of sleeping spirits.”
Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

“The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings

“Your life is your own. Rise up and live it.”
Terry Goodkind, Faith of the Fallen

“When my sons told me about what they'd found, I went to the priests of Belar and had them examine the auguries. This is the year to go. The ice up there won't be as thick again for years and years. Then they cast my own auguries, and from what they say, this could be the most fortunate year in my whole life."
"Do you actually believe that superstitious nonsense?" I demanded. "Are you so gullible that you think that somebody can foretell the future by fondling a pile of sheep guts?"
He looked a little injured. "This was important, Belgarath. I certainly wouldn't trust sheep's entrails for something like this."
"I'm glad to hear that."
"We used a horse instead. Horse guts never lie.”
David Eddings, Belgarath the Sorcerer
