Welcome to the website and blog of D.L. Morrese, award winning author of unique speculative fiction including the lighthearted Warden  epic adventure counter-fantasy stories. Here is where he shares his philosophical musings, mutterings about the life of an author, insights about writing, book reviews, and occasional comments on other things that momentarily excite, annoy, or distract him. Under the various tabs, you can also find out more about his books and the amazing world on which they are set.

You are more than welcome to browse here a bit, check out the previews of his books and other content, and, if you wish, to provide comments. He does read them.


Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Isaac Asimov, Carl Sagan, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, and many others. He doesn’t write like them; he writes like him, but these are among the people he never met who taught him to do so.

What people are saying about his books:

  • “it’s laugh-out-loud funny…the grammar is refreshingly precise and the vocabulary, well, scrumptious~ Maria T. Violante “Write, Read, Review” on The Warden Threat
  • “…shows the influence of Terry Pratchett in style and current events in the overall plot. The book is easy to read, but hardly simplistic…Occasionally laugh out loud funny.” ~ Review by M. A. Goethe “Margaret” on The Warden Threat
  • My favorite element was the development of Donald’s character as he undergoes the hero’s journey – I look forward to seeing what other adventures he will face with his friends.” ~ P.H.C. Marchesi on The Warden Threat
  • “It passed my 5-star test, which means I would pick it up and read it again…. I loved the characters…. This book pokes fun at just about everything. Not only at your typical fantasy adventure story.” ~ wilovebooks Reviews on The Warden Threat
  • “It’s a skillfully executed work by a talented author with a unique voice.” ~ Tahlia Newland on The Warden Threat
  • “D.L. really makes a world you can believe in with his writing. …the story is so engaging and plausible that I really felt like it could have happened.” ~ Kate Policani on The Warden War
  • “The Warden War’ sucked me in … and I really cared about the characters and what happens next. For me, the success of a novel is driven by the story and ‘The Warden War’ is a great story! I highly recommend this to any reader who enjoys SciFi or Fantasy. I can’t wait for his next book. ~ Gary Clarke
  • This somewhat quirky, somewhat light sci-fi/fantasy story was just what I was looking for. The characters were interesting and believable, and it made for a really fun, well-written, well-edited book. … I hope there is another book to follow. ~ SamanthaSSJ on Defying Fate
  • I loved Amy’s Pendant … Morrese’s humor and little hints of levity that made the Warden series so compelling continue in this novel. ~ Rabid Readers Too review of Amy’s Pendant
  • “…written levels above the average book on the market today. Certainly books to entertain and to make the reader THINK and laugh.” ~ Don Livesay
  • There is a whimsy in the way Morrese writes that could be called light fantasy. His work is infused with humor and intelligence and general good fun for the reader. I am a big fan of Douglas Adams and Jasper Fforde…. Morrese writes with the same spirit as these authors. ~ Rabid Readers review of Disturbing Clockwork

  1. I loved the Adept series. I realized half way though the first book that that’s what I was re-reading. P. A. remade. Good job.


    I have so enjoyed your books on the Warden’s World. I wish there were more! I love the android animals. The veiled references are really neat like the Kentucky Fried Chicken and Custer’s last stand. The very best was the statement “He’s dead, Jimm” That sent chills up my spine!
    I am wondering about the Brane books. I haven’t tried them yet. I am sure that I will.

    • Thanks for your kind words, Vicky. I do often wonder if anyone reads my books, and if they have, if liked them. I am very pleased that you did. I am currently working on another Warden’s World book, but it’s far from completion. In the meantime, I do hope you’ll try the Brane Child series. I think it’s quite fun.

  3. Hi 🙂 as far as my English is so unperfect, I will leave only a few words. I just want to say ur ‘Brane Child’ trylogy was a really first book(s) I’ve ever read in english. As u can see it’s quite a big deal for me 🙂 So, I want to say: tank u for a great books, I will stay with them for a while.

  4. I have just finished reading the 3 books in the Brane series and admit, I have not enjoyed a series of books so much for year. I am an avid SF reader and have been since about 1955 when I discovered Arthur C Clarke’s Childhoods End. Like you I enjoyed Douglas Adams and have seen the stage version of HHGG a number of times.The second time I was invited to be one of the crowd at the Restaurant at the end of the universe. Happy memories

  5. I absolutely love your novels; however, your proofreader needs to brush up on his or her skills. As a retired English teacher and book editor myself, incorrect spelling and tense give me goose bumps, and not pleasant ones!

    Keep writing, but please give your proofreader a heads up.

  6. Just finished “An Android Dog’s Tale.” Most enjoyable. Well written and thought-provoking.
    Thank you!

  7. Dave
    I caught your book “An Android Dog’s Tale”- its a great tale although I would have thought humans would be harder to influence in person; as “thinkers” come around in every generation. All in all a great tale, I’m off to buy and read the Warden series..to see what happens to Moe.

  8. will Mo 126 be awaken?

  9. Hi Thanks for the warden series, I’ve just finished, rated and reviewed. Then shared and tweeted. 5 stars on goodreads. Hope the review helps. Jeremy Poole

  10. David, Brane Child is your best book yet!!!!!!!!!! Never having been a SciFi fan, I found that I just hadn’t found the right author. Sometimes authors are easier to find than one might think!

    Brane Child had me on the edge of my seat all the way. I thought many times that I had it all figured out but was surprised endlessly—all the way to Lisa’s mental image. very thought provoking for those of us in to metaphysics. and I laughed so many times. I must say LAUGHED out loud–not a chuckle!!!!!!!

    hope this is a series!


    • Thanks, Don. I’m humbled. I was planning three ‘brane’ books. I’m currently working on the first draft of the second one. The working title is… well, I don’t suppose I should say just yet. 🙂

  11. have read both Warden books and Amy’s Pendant. loved them all!!! love the blend of humor, time frames, sci fi and fairy tale. am looking forward to the next book!!! David’s books are NOT formula stories. they are most unique and written levels above the average book on the market today. Certainly books to entertain and to make the reader THINK and laugh.

    Keep up the great work David!!!!!!!!!!

    I just finished reading and enjoying your second novel (I had already read the first). You have a great imagination!
