First-time au­thor tells true story of har­row­ing trip to Africa

Cape Breton Post - - FOOD FOCUS - BY GREG MCNEIL

about a selfish un­der­tak­ing that led him into a cor­rupt world.

“ When we got there it was like we made it, but that was just the beginning.”

His har­row­ing jour­ney took place about 14 years ago, but he only re­cently de­cided to write about it.

“I de­cided to go through the whole thing in my mind, which can raise a lot of dif­fer­ent mixed emo­tions. The idea was just to get it on pa­per. I don’t mind talk­ing about it now be­cause it is in the past now.”

Most of the 100 copies he had printed were sold in about three weeks. Since then he’s been re­ceiv­ing some pos­i­tive feed­back to his work.

“ When I first wrote it I thought peo­ple were pay­ing me lip ser­vice. Then it went on to a broader base and peo­ple who don’t know you tell you they couldn’t put it down.”

Mor­ri­son plans to pol­ish his story and then ap­proach a pub­lisher about a larger dis­tri­bu­tion in the near fu­ture.
