About the Author: Stephen Morley lives and works in the south of England. He has published four novels in recent years, but has been writing fiction and composing music for over forty years. Stephen says: “Music and the countryside have always been strong influences in my life and I brought them together in my novels. My new novel, Keepers In Trust, is set in an imaginary landscape, and widens the scenic pallette from previous works.” Stephen is also an enthusiastic musician and songwriter, with a love of folk instruments. He comments: “I believe that music crosses boundaries and joins people wherever they live and whatever their beliefs. Folk music plays an important role in many of my stories.”
