About the Book
Five scrumptuous short treats are delivered in Bit, exotic travel fantasies born of the imagination of a teenage globetrotter. When most adolescents worry most about their acne situation, Morgan Hartley followed the pull of the world and the opportunites that were offered to him by jetting, sailing, climbing, dancing and running to and through places some of us didn't know existed. Along the way great stories surfaced, part his, part tales, part imagination. Instead of a straightforward travel log, Morgan lets his agile pen spin a handful of delicious short stories that have all the smells and grit of his real adventures, with twists. The voice is fresh, captivating, and bursts with promise; Bit's got teeth.
French Californian by background, Morgan's upbringing projected to him the wide horizons of our world. While following the dreamy sports-oriented lifestyle of typical Southern California schoolboys, he travelled and was pushed to taste adventure from a young age. Fertile conversations were de rigueur at family dinners, and there was a paternal requirement to learn a new city on one's own through public transit; these and many other aspects of Morgan's upbringing, combined with Morgan's genetic inclination to get engrossed in the exciting voice of his mind, produced a vibrant young author.
