Author Biography

Morris Denton is a fifth generation Texan and has traversed the great state of Texas many times, exploring the changing terrain from the vastness of the Panhandle to the mountains of west Texas to the shores of the Gulf of Mexico to the Piney Woods and forests of east Texas and all points between. No matter where he goes in Texas, the people are friendly and welcoming. Some members of his extended family and several friends are in the oil and gas business, and while he’s a believer in climate change he recognizes that the path forward must be inclusive of all forms of energy. Over the course of a thirty plus year professional career in business, Morris has witnessed the best of people and organizations and companies and hopes that those that chase the almighty dollar recognize the importance of people and our planet in the process. Morris holds a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations and Advertising from Texas Christian University and a Master of Arts in Journalism from the University of Colorado. He lives in Austin with his wife and is proud of his two adult children who are successfully and honorably and kindly making their way through this rough and tumble world. He encourages them to always remember that one person’s success doesn’t have to come at another person’s expense.

Reviewed by Alma Boucher for Readers' Favorite

Fracked is an outstanding novel by Morris Denton. Rand Holub was left at the front gate of The Ranch, a school for troubled boys. Rand was autistic, and his parents no longer wanted to look after him. Souter exposed Rand to as many different mechanical things as he could and bought him a tablet to draw his designs. Souter’s wife, Dottie, knew Rand’s ability to make a reasonable life for himself would depend on his ability to communicate, and she was determined in her teaching and therapy. Rand left The Ranch at eighteen, and it was not long before he met Shelby. When Shelby saw Rand’s designs, she realized he was a genius. Rand just needed someone in a position of authority who saw the potential in his designs and was willing to give him a change.

Fracked was intriguing and exciting. Morris Denton took me on a roller coaster ride of love, trust, and loyalty. It was an engaging and emotional story, and I was hooked from the start. I could not put it down, and I just kept turning the pages. It was an easy read, and the chapters flowed into each other. I immersed myself in Rand's life so much. I could not wait to see what the future held for him. The characters were well-developed and relatable. Rand was an outsider who yearned to be part of life. He was different, and not everybody understood that. Life was difficult for Rand, but he was a hard worker and overcame his struggles. The story is beautifully written and exceeded my expectations by far.
