Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet.
On this planet lives a man named Morgan Hobbes. He’s not the only person living there; in point of fact there are billions of people, and most of them wouldn’t know who Morgan Hobbes was even if he threw a rock at them.
Not that he makes a habit of throwing rocks at people.
Apart from that, Morgan Hobbes is a pen name. He’s spent enough of his life spelling his surname, so when he began publishing he chose a new name that was much simpler.
But the point is out of all those billions of people he’s the one you’re currently reading about.
Morgan lives in Newcastle, Australia with his wife and children. His day job is in tech support and training though he’d much prefer to be writing fiction. He’s a fan of science fiction and fantasy, preferably stories leaning towards humorous, but will read anything that takes his fancy.
When not writing about himself in the third person, he enjoys writing science fiction and young adult stories, and branching out into other genres when inspiration strikes.
Morgan first began writing in 2014 after his eldest daughter was diagnosed at three years old with autism. It was a very stressful time and he found that writing helped calm him down.
From that day he began working on outlines for many stories he’s since published. The first story he released was Storm View – a light-hearted noirish space adventure.
The first thing he ever published though wasn’t science fiction at all. It was a children’s picture book called Biggy Piggy. Morgan wrote and illustrated it as a surprise for his daughters then published it (Kindle and Paperback) so other kids could get enjoyment out of it as well.
He sincerely hopes you enjoy the stories he has written and hopes you will leave a review on Amazon for any that you read. Feel free to follow him on Twitter (@morgan_hobbes) or Instagram (morganhobbes). You can also send him an email through the Contact form on this site.
