Meet the Author

"George with his friends Snip and pup Sierra."


George was raised climbing the mountains and fishing the lakes and streams of the Sierra Nevada mountains. At a young age he started to appreciate the value of the unspoiled beauty of the wilderness. To this day he continues to appreciate the beauty of the earth and the life that is upon it. Many of the stories he has written are first hand experiences, such as the lady bugs hatching on the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe - as is talked about in The Little Helper.


After a tour in Vietnam, George married his wife, Jean, who has been a great benefit to George in his writings and life. George and Jean toured the U.S. and Canada for several months in their VW van seeking a place to raise a family. But nothing was as appealing as their own back yard of Nevada with its desert valleys and high mountains. Now married 39 years, the Morrows reside on a small farm in Fallon, Nevada where they have raised four sons: Jeremy, Jake, Josh and Jesse. George says with a smile, "It's hard not to be happy when you have everything."


George is much like anyone else; he's a dreamer about a lot of things, but he is also a doer. When he sets his mind to it, few things stand in the way to get the results he desires.


Many of George's dreams have already come true. For instance, when he recently cut a CD at Opal Studios in Portland, Oregon with songs he has written, with his sons accompanying him on instruments, George's heart swelled with joy. By completing this project, he brought closure to a statement he had been wanting to make, mostly to himself. "I've been waiting since I was 12 years old to record in a sound studio, but you know," George says with a smirk, "I'm just going to have to come to grips with the fact that I probably won't ever be a great songwriter like Bob Dylan or a guitarist like Eric Clapton." He laughs like a little boy, "But a storyteller? That's something I can do."


Indeed, George is a wonderful storyteller! Whether he's conveying his very first composition about Emily the Goose, or telling about one of his real-life adventures exploring Tahoe, George entertains, evokes emotion, and even teaches.


George's motivation is to produce children's literature that elevates values. He also desires to highlight awareness of children's development, as well as their wit and humor. George has a great respect for a child's perspective on nature; the pure relationship of the two is an ongoing theme in his writing.
