Best known for his debut short story collection, In All Probability, Steve Morris is a teacher and examiner of mathematics and science. Much of his teaching has been with students unable to attend schools due to their illnesses.
Despite a background surrounded by figures, one of Steve's lifelong passions has been his love for English literature and of collecting antiquarian books.
Learning to talk at a "spookily" early age and thereafter never afraid to speak his mind, Steve was taught to read fluently by his parents at the age of four.
Story writing quickly began in his own schooldays where he enjoyed putting his vivid imagination to good use.
With a growing supply of often quite bizarre short stories, Steve's words found early success in magazines and anthologies in both the UK and overseas.
2009 saw Steve realise a lifelong ambition with the release of his debut book In All Probability: A Collection of Short Stories, which with a nod of approval from the UK press developed a modest cult following. This was followed in 2010 with a second collection: Jumble Tales.
2011 saw Steve winning a short story award for the first story for a forthcoming series of upbeat short stories.
Summer 2012 saw the release of Steve's debut full length novel, Playing Havoc. Set amongst the claustrophobic community of an island off the UK's coast, the controversial techno-thriller tells the story of how people have to quickly learn to co-operate after every electronic gadget on the Globe goes pop.
Steve graduated in mathematics from Manchester Metropolitan University in 1993, where he also enjoyed representing them in soccer for four years.
A lifelong bachelor who prefers a single life, Steve places great value on trusted friendships and on some brave students he works with.
