About the Author

Richard Morris grew up in a suburb of Cleveland, and as a teenager, canoed most of the waterways described in Canoedling In Cleveland. In 1966, while a student at Western Reserve University, he worked in Carl Stokes' first campaign for mayor. Stokes, the first African American mayor of a major American city, later led Cleveland in cleaning up the Cuyahoga River, which caught on fire in 1969 and became the poster child for the Clean Water Act of 1972. In 1967, Morris served as an infantry rifle platoon leader in Vietnam. David Willson of the Vietnam Veterans of America describes Morris's first novel, Cologne No. 10 For Men, as "a Catch 22 of the Vietnam War" and a "funny Vietnam War infantry book . . . . Read it and be amazed." Writer's Digest calls it "a superb novel of the Vietnam war . . . that compares favorably with those earlier "dark humor" war novels such as Catch-22 and M.A.S.H. The writing crackles with authenticity." Kirkus calls his second novel, Well Considered, "a sensitive study of race and history in the American South," and "a multilayered thriller."
