Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I love delving into the pages of history as I carry out research for my historical novels. My novels are inspired by true events. My favourite era is the 1st World War, and in the course of my research I have visited the battlefields of France and Belgium. A truly poignant experience.
I am married with three sons and have a little grand daughter.

My publishers are The Wild Rose Press, Whiskey Creek Press and Books We Love.

My three published novels from WCP are Devils Ridge set against a background of the 1st World War, and Savage Utopia, set in the 1830's and dealing with the transportation of convicts, innocent or otherwise, to the then penal colony of Australia. The sequel to Savage Utopia, is Stolen Birthright.

Holly and the Millionaire is my first published contemporary novel from The Wild Rose Press. It is set against the background of the war in Iraq, and reached No 12 on the Fictionwise Best Sellling Romance list. TWRP have published three other books from me, Cardinal Sin, set against the background of the Vietnam War, Shattered Dreams, set during the 1st World War, and The Trouble With Playboys, set against a background of the 2nd World War.

Savage Utopia

Hi Everyone,

A little piece of boasting here. My historical novel Savage Utopia which has recently been released by WhiskeyCreek Press is in the top 100 on the Fictionwise Best Selling Romance List, not bad out of over 7,000 books. It is also No 2 on the WhiskeyCreek best sellers list at Fictionwise, and just to make my day, it has appeared on the home page of Mobi-pocket, the first Whiskeycreek Press novel to do so.

Savage Utopia is a romance set against a background of… Continue

It's taken me ages to comment on your message.

I'm hard at work on my novels in spite of rejections.

One from a London agent read; You write with strength and feeling. Some years ago I would have requested a full submission but am unable to do so in today's economic climate,

All the best,

Rosemary Morris

Hi Margaret

Are any of your boos in print or are they e-books? Just wondered as Mythica Publishing is now doing print as well as e-books and are currently open to submissions. Take a look at if you're interested.

Hello everyone,
I have been a tad quiet lately, heaps of edits. I just received a really great review from Simply Romance Reviews for my convict era novel Savage Utopia. If anyone would like to read it:

Hi Brian,
Yes, it was interesting. I was surprised at how close together the murders happened in those narrow streets and alley ways. Imagine living there in such appalling conditions. Prostitution would have been the only way some of those unfortunate women could earn money. They didn't get much sympathy either. Had they been wealthy women who were murdered, I bet the search for Jack The Ripper would have been ten times more intensive and they might have caught him.
I am glad I live in these times. I have recently had a book published by WhiskeyCreek Press called Savage utopia, which is a romance set against a background of transporation to the the then penal colony of Australia. Talk about horrific, some of my research actually made be feel ill. You wonder how one person could degrade another in such a shocking manner.

Hi Margaret,

The ripper tour must have een fascinating for you. I hope you found it interesting. I won't use the word 'enjoyable' as its not really the word to apply to the sites of such grisly murders. Those poor women were after all just the same as all of us, doing their best to eke out a living of sorts in the midst of great deprivation. I think that most people have forgotten that fact, and their names are little more than a footnote to the story of Jack the Ripper in an lot of people's minds.

I'm sure that like most people who take the tour, you must have drunk in the atmosphere of those Whitechapel streets, and felt something of the pull of history as you saw where it all happened. Were you surprised at how close the locations all were to each other? I know some people are.

Best regards

Hi Margaret,

We have indeed 'met' on a number of other loops, most notably on Bragging Rites I think. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm glad the subject can send shivers down your spine, as of course, that is also the intention of the novel. I've just posted the latest customer review on my blog, from US author Barbara Watkins. She seems to have thoroughly enjoyed it!

Have a wonderful day, and thanks again.

Best regards
