James Morrissey is a military nurse and freelance writer, who is an adventurer at heart. He has traveled throughout the Americas, Africa, Europe, and South Pacific. James has multiple "Bean's Adventures" books in the making based off his Aussiedoodle, Bean. His vibrant passion for travel is exemplified in his back country snowboarding trips, hiking treks, camping outings, and cross-country road trips. James currently resides in The Lone Star State with his wife; ever-playful four-legged inspiration; and all the pecans to satisfy his hunger.
The inspiration to write Bean’s Adventures centers around my love to explore. Any new experience peaks my interest, because this is an opportunity to learn and connect - with either nature, people, or myself. Publishing Bean’s Adventures is a creative approach to provide children with mental tangibles to navigate all their new experiences, safely.
