Announcing! A new novel — available now

A novel of suspense, mystery, history, and humor,  as Ron Watkins looks into the 1907 mob murder of his great-grandfather on a Maryland tobacco plantation.

Well Considered is a suspenseful but deeply moving novel that
gripped me
throughout. I recommend it.”
William C. Byers

Well Considered is populated with real characters, and Morris
again shares his
smart storytelling. Like his previously acclaimed novel, this read is fast paced and fascinating.”
— Janis Rose

Genealogy is generally considered a dull, but safe, obsession suitable for elderly   folks with weak hearts. However, in Well Considered the hero, Ron Watkins, finds climbing his family tree to be anything but dull; in fact, it is full of surprising twists and turns which leave the reader alternately claustrophobic or terrorized. Ancestral research has seldom been more gripping.
— Laird C. Towle, Ph.D.,
Founder and formerly CEO of Heritage Books, Inc.

Tackling the sensitive issue of race relations in a novel without bogging down a fast-paced plot is tricky, but Morris accomplishes the feat admirably. And Well Considered is certainly well constructed. As the story line builds, the reader gladly joins the protagonist as he methodically researches the past to uncover the truth behind a wretched murder in his family. The suspense escalates as modern-day evil threatens to repeat history. I definitely felt compelled to turn the pages right to the very end.

Well Consideredl has recently been approved for inclusion in the Prince George’s County (MD) Memorial Library System and the Prince George’s County Historical Society Library in Greenbelt, MD.

    Ratified in 1868, the Fourteenth Amendment said,
    “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges…”

    Richard Morris’s book, Well Considered, butt-tangles with Jim Crow outside the law. The story of Ron Watkins whose possession of a familial fragment of historical horror, finds substance as his investigation spans the net, microfilm and other primary source revelations. Thomas Phillips, 1907, lynched! The reader comes to know Ron through his reaction to white supremacists and his own surly hatred. We meet Annie and Mary whose families are a swell of secrets compounding and giving realism to the energy the book commands. Days after finishing the read, I continued to be lost in its prevailing attitudes. Choice is always an aspect of a great book.
