I published my second novel, Say Cheese, on 17th July 2019. A work of literary science fiction, it took me six years to complete. Thankfully, I don’t find that a depressing thought; I’m happy with the finished article. Read the blurb below for a glimpse therein, and buy a copy here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1080006796/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=say+cheese+morris+e+morrissey&qid=1563386064&s=gateway&sr=8-1
‘The cigarette smoke unfurled itself, spreading like the cancer it would cause. This is the image that comes to mind when I recall life before State Now – a time I like to call the Blind Years. I will not remind you of what you have now escaped.’
With these words, Fitzgerald creates State Now. Turning their backs on the rest of the world, he and his people transform their nation into an island of prosperity. And yet, eight years later, Fitzgerald’s identity remains unknown.
Julian is an anxious over-thinker still pining after his teenage love who left State Now years ago. When he wakes up one morning with little recollection of the night before, he starts hearing a voice that may belong to Fitzgerald. Desperate for answers, Julian turns to Mind Travel, a groundbreaking but illegal technology that recreates entire memories in perfect detail.
Frank is a successful entrepreneur who spends his evenings trying to prove how laid-back he is. But his life of comfort is threatened when a Gov warden finds anti-Fitzgerald literature in his home. Fleeing to The Capital, Frank meets Carola, a beautiful and forthright music producer. Finding themselves at a loss in a new city, they embark on a hunt for Fitzgerald.
As their paths gradually converge, Julian and Frank delve into the heart of State Now and ask the question on everyone’s lips: who is Fitzgerald?
