The Family Bed – A Poem

The Family Bed is a sweet little poem I wrote about the benefits of cosleeping; such a simple parenting concept, which has brought so much joy and harmony to our family.

The Family Bed - Cover 2 - 2016It has twice hit the Amazon Bestseller lists in the UK and USA, topping the Parenting, Babies & Toddlers and Sleep categories. #Humble #Gratitude

I’ve been lucky enough to get some lovely reviews from very kind readers (other than my Mum) – Pop to Amazon UK to read them.

My aim for 2016 is to turn this proven seller into a proper picture book (currently e-book only)… So, illustrators – get in touch!! The book includes safe cosleeping (bedsharing) guidelines and links to parenting authors who helped me early in my journey. I would love to expand and update this list – let me know in the comments who has really helped your family with baby bedtimes!

For now, you can get your copy on Amazon UK, Amazon USA, or your country’s store (just search “JL Morse The Family Bed”)

New Day Resolutions – NDRSimpleHappy

NDR Logo

Welcome to the infoblurb about my 2016 Happiness Project…

… Introducing New Day Resolutions

After years of made and abandoned New Year’s Resolutions, this 1st January I decided to launch something a little different.

Why wait for New Year’s Day for a New You?

If new habits are truly meant to stick, they are meant to seamlessly integrate into, and improve upon, our every day lives. Every. Day.

Hence, //New Day Resolutions.me

Three children in five years left a gap in my writing habit I want to address. I also have learned an awful lot about what adds up to happiness in my life, and what subtracts from it. NDRSimpleHappy is my version of happiness curation – tips and tricks from the weird corners of the bloggisphere which have genuinely made a difference in my life.

Not an impossible list of mandates, or a reading requirement longer than your arm. One daily post it note, lots of links, and a dash of love poured on top.

Give a little love - 005

If you’d like to follow along, or even share your favourite tips to get to Happy, I’d love to hear from you.

Here are the links

The Romantic Disentanglement of Us – A Novel

This is the story of Us. What we used to be. Perhaps, what we never were.

One never having experienced the neurotic disintegration of dysfunctional love has never experienced love at all. I know this now.

What happens when intertwined lives, such as ours, begin to unravel? Bare hearts, focused. Raw. Not hearts and flowers, we are long past that. She’s made certain of it. She is leaving me, it’s only a matter of when.

This is the story of she and me. No longer, Us.

The Romantic Disentanglement of Us is a gross anatomy of an overdue break up. The final frustration of a less than civil partnership. A lesson in love gone cold, contempt and contentment. Love stories start at the beginning. This is the story of the beginning of the end, and what happens next.

Pre-Sale Reviews:

The Romantic Disentanglement of Us details the disintegration of a long-term relationship, via respective (often unreliable and surprising) narratives. It is not your conventional romance, but a tale of love gone cold; of contempt, bitterness, and questioning what it really means to be looking for, or losing, a partner in life.

A probing discourse on the nature of human relationships, this novel blends quantum physics, philosophy and social commentary in a tale of what happens when we lose ourselves to someone else, and how we can start to find ourselves again.”


…”The Romantic Disentanglement of Us is not your usual romance. It is about the steady tumbling descent of a long-term relationship. The sharply drawn characters are erudite, relatable, and often acerbic, using wide literary context and quantum physics to elucidate on the many dimensions of the central theme, love; what it means to find it, lose it and live without it. This is not a hearts and flowers romance, but is redemptive and rancorous alike.”

The Romantic Disentanglement of Us is available in print and ebook on Amazon Worldwide, and for FREE on Kindle Unlimited.

This is one of those books that can hit a nerve in an uncanny way. I found myself sucking air through my teeth at the recognition of me and my past relationships in there.

It is an interesting take to start a story at the end of a relationships and document what happens next. So few books I have read actually do that, Kramer Vs Kramer possibly…. but this story has it’s own story….if you know what I mean?

A great book for any commitment-phobes like me out there!

A wonderfully wordy read. The feelings of each party as the relationship starts to fall apart make for a thought provoking read. At first I wasn’t sure of the identity of the other party , then I guessed and then changed my mind again ,which was part of the intrigue. Worth reading but don’t expect a plot line or a story but more a full immersion into each party’s emotions and insecurities.
