the adventures of Morley the meerkat and Jack the rabbit
Paul Geerlings - author
I recall the pleasure I had when my own children were small and I could read to them from a book that was well written, allowed me to engage with them and be expressive. That was the inspiration for me to begin writing stories for children in rhyme.
A career in the entertainment industry gave me ample opportunities to work on other people’s projects and see how they did it. Especially when working with companies like Disney, Pixar and Warner Brothers. Even recording famous voices for the likes of Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny and others.
Writing and storytelling became an extension of my professional life, where I could progress from working on other people’s creations and develop my own. Perhaps in contrast, writing at home in my native New Zealand, away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood is what truly motivated me.
..to the curious world of Morley the meerkat and his bestie Jack Rabbit.
Morley is a clever little meerkat, mostly keeping to himself. Unless there's a dance in town and he knows Jack Rabbit will be there too.. he won't miss that for all the world!
Jack Rabbit, on the other hand, seems to get himself into a spot of bother every so often.
