TEE MORRIS: While Tee Morris began his writing career with Dragon Moon Press’ 2002 historical epic fantasy, MOREVI: The Chronicles of Rafe & Askana, it is his podcast of that book and works like Podcasting for Dummies and All a Twitter where people know him best: one of the pioneers of Social Media. With Phoenix Rising, Tee returns to where he prefers to be: in his imagination. When he is not there, Tee lives in the Washington D.C. area with his five cats and one daughter, all of whom have him very well-trained.
Pip & Tee’s first steampunk novel together, PHOENIX RISING came out last May to great reviews. The second book in the series, THE JANUS AFFAIR is coming in June 2012!
