Hi Mensi,
That depends on what genres you enjoy reading.
I'm that rare breed of writer known as a multi-genre author and I write in 3 main genres, which are all very different: modern thrillers, historical fiction and non-fiction books.
If you enjoy thrillers, then start with The Ninth Orphan (book 1 in The Orphan Trilogy). If you prefer historical fiction, then begin by reading World Odyssey (Book 1 in The World Duology). Or, if you like non-fiction, then try my books in The Underground Knowledge Series.
Thanks for your question.

“Democrats and Republicans were essentially the same party with different faces and that was why, no matter how many promises each leader made, significant change rarely transpired.”
James Morcan, Lance Morcan, The Ninth Orphan

“The purpose of having the orphans study all these diverse fields was not for them to just become geniuses, but to become polymaths – meaning they would be geniuses in a wide variety of fields.”
James Morcan, Lance Morcan, The Ninth Orphan

“Nine had heard whisperings that the secretive Bilderberg Group was effectively the World Government, undermining democracy by influencing everything from nations' political leaders to the venue for the next war. He recalled persistent rumors and confirmed media reports that the Bilderberg Group had such luminaries as Barack Obama, Prince Charles, Bill Gates, Rupert Murdoch, Tony Blair, Bill and Hillary Clinton, George Bush Sr. and George W. Bush. Other Bilderberg members sprung forth from Nine’s memory bank. They included the founders and CEOs of various multinational corporations like Facebook, BP, Google, Shell and Amazon, as well as almost every major financial institution on the planet.”

The Orphan Conspiracies 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy by James Morcan


message 4: by James

James Morcan In the UK, companies are placing spikes outside their buildings to deter people from sleeping on their property. HERE'S THE TRUTH, PEOPLE: There's more than enough wealth in our world for every man, woman and child to at least have basic shelter. Whenever I see a homeless person I think to myself that that person was once a baby in his mother's arms and what would that mother think now. I've seen homeless people mocked in the streets by individuals who've clearly been dealt a better hand in life. How can we in the West call our societies civilized when we allow people to live like animals?

Take a look at my second novel Moonwarriors: Guardians of the Night. Come by and we'll chat, leave a comment.

Until Next Time . . .
