I'm John Morrison
I’m a retired Naval Officer living with my wife Dot, in beautiful Mill Bay, British Columbia (BC), Canada. I started writing after retiring from 37 years of service in the Royal Canadian Navy.
I have always wanted to write but procrastinated on this passion for most of my life. I did not really start writing seriously until I retired. Having travelled most of the world through my time in the Navy, I feel I can mine many experiences to facilitate storytelling. As an example, Kurofune: The Black Ships, my first book, is a war and love story that has the civilian tragedy that occurred during the Battle of Saipan as a backdrop. A visit there in 1974 piqued my interest in that tragic tale of sacrifice and suffering.
