MY OLD CLOCK I WIND AND OTHER POEMS
“My Old Clock I Wind” is a collection of 74 new and original poems by Kevin Morris. It contains both melancholy and more cheerful pieces contrasting the fact that We can enjoy life but at the same time cannot escape its inevitable end.
As we pass
Along life’s path.
There are tears too
For me and you
For every year
Must have it’s end.
“My Old Clock” is available in paperback and ebook formats from Moyhill Publishing,
THE FIRST TIME
In this collection of short stories I explore why young women enter the world of prostitution while other stories look at what happens when the worlds of sex and technology collide. In “The First Time”, the first story in this collection, we meet Becky a young graduate who enters the world of prostitution in order to clear her debts. The story looks at the effects of prostitution on Becky and her fellow escort and friend Julie. In “The Pain Behind the Smile” Issie presents her friend, Peter with a birthday cake, however things are not what they seem. In “Lucy” the acquaintances of a crusty old bachelor speculate how he could attract and retain the affections of a beautiful young woman. As with “The Pain Behind the Smile” things are far from what they seem. “Hemlock” explores what happens when machines attain the capacity to appreciate high culture. The story is both humorous and deeply serious.
Samantha tells the story of a young girl forced into prostitution in the city of Liverpool. The story examines the physical and psychological effects of forced prostitution on Sam. Can Sam survive or will she end her life in the murky waters of Liverpool’s Albert Docks?
AN ACT OF MERCY AND OTHER STORIES

STING IN THE TAIL AND OTHER STORIES
A collection of short stories, many of which have an unexpected twist in the tale. The stories range from ghostly happenings through to tales of crime and moral conflict.
STREET WALKER AND OTHER STORIES
In this collection of flash fiction we meet a variety of characters, many of whom have been deeply damaged by life. The stories range from a young prostitute who walks the dangerous streets of London to tales of vengeance and comeuppance. Serious issues of abuse of power are touched upon. Anyone who is looking for a comfortable read should avoid this book.
THE SUSPECT AND OTHER TALES:
Tales of the unexpected, ranging from stories of crime and vengeance through to ghostly happenings in an ancient mansion.
DALLIANCE; A COLLECTION OF POETRY AND PROSE
In this collection of poetry and prose the intimate connections between the natural world and humanity are explored, while a number of pieces are of a humorous nature.
THE GIRL WHO WASN’T THERE AND OTHER POEMS
The great Oscar Wilde remarked, “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars”.
Many of the poems in this collection portray people struggling in life’s gutter.
“Lonely men of a certain age” hear the voices of young women and yearn for something beyond “sterile sitting rooms”, while to the prostitute, its all about “handbags and shoes”, even if her “choice” leads to the woman “drowning in booze”.
Anyone who likes dark poetry will, it is hoped, gain something from this collection.

“The poet may redact
The light that through his poem does refract.
But the reader will therein construe
That she believes to be true”.
Light refracts causing confusion as to where it is going in the same
way that poems do. What the reader thinks the poet means and
what he actually does are often 2 rather different things but readers
will, none the less draw their own conclusions (eroneous or
