"Morris deftly blends bloody clashes of arms and mysterious enchantments with the many flavours of romance, generously seasoned with wry humour and a dash of unexpected pathos." Kirkus Review "These books are very, very funny! I kept wanting to read the best bits out to my mum." Lucy Howlett, aged 11, Red House Book Club reviewer."
About Gerald Morris
Gerald Morris has written six titles in the highly-acclaimed The Squire's Tales series. In addition to writing he also serves as pastor of a church and teaches theology. As a child, Morris read voraciously, but mostly bad Western novels. Years later, when he discovered the ancient tales of King Arthur and realized what a good thing he had been missing all those years, he decided to retell those stories for the next generation. Gerald lives in Wisconsin, USA with his wife and three children.
