Ahwatukee resident and author Tom Morrissey looks to the future after releasing the third novel of his “The Sacred Search” series.

Morrissey, a martial artist and former U.S. Marshal, brought the series to an end with the publication of “In Search of the Sacred Chamber: Book 3.” The series, which Morrissey said is categorized as a metaphysical martial arts series, follows main character Jeremy Storyteller as he must use his skills to survive in a world where he is caught between good and evil. The series has even captured the attention of Steven Seagal. Morrissey said Seagal was drawn to the series because of its representation of martial arts.

Now, Morrissey and Seagal are planning to team up on a new project. As explained by Morrissey, the project is a series that will focus on Native American law enforcement officers who do work as trackers. He said the new series will feature books that are more fact-based and take places in Phoenix and Mexico.

He plans to continue writing in the future.

“I’m a storyteller by nature,” Morrissey said.

Morrissey has been an Arizona resident since 1986. His books can be found on Amazon both in print and digital editions.
