About Sheila Morris

Sheila Morris is an essayist with humorist tendencies who periodically indulges her desires to write outside her genre by trying to write fiction and poetry. In December, 2017, the University of South Carolina Press published her collection of first-person accounts of a few of the people primarily responsible for the development of LGBTQ organizations in South Carolina. Southern Perspectives on the Queer Movement: Committed to Home will resonate with everyone interested in LGBTQ history in the South during the tumultuous times from the AIDS pandemic to marriage equality. She has published five nonfiction books including two memoirs, an essay compilation and two collections of her favorite blogs from I'll Call It Like I See It. Her first book, Deep in the Heart: A Memoir of Love and Longing received a Golden Crown Literary Society Award in 2008. Her writings have been included in various anthologies - most recently the 2017 Saints and Sinners Literary Magazine. Her latest book, Four Ticket Ride, will be available in December, 2018. She is a displaced Texan living in South Carolina with her wife Teresa Williams and their dogs Spike and Charly. Her Texas roots are never far from her thoughts.

  3. 17 lost and the mentality is still “well, no telling what SHE (HRC) would have gotten us into.” So, we lost more kids next week and the week after and we get more indifferent. People will pray and send donations and consider their conscience clear. I so hope some of the kids impacted by gun violence will decide to run for office and start the movement to change things.

    • I couldn’t believe Paul Ryan with his now is not the time to do anything until we know all the facts…I am wondering what facts he doesn’t know yet? Our children are being murdered in our schools – that is the only fact we need to know.
      And yes, I hope we have people running for office on both sides of the aisle who have some sense of compassion and decency.
