Whether she's interviewing Prime Ministers on the hot seat, or Black Panthers on the lam - in the brothels of Mumbai, the cane fields of Cuba, or the beauty parlors of Iran - Morris chases down her subjects and exacts a story that is fresh and idea-driven. Morris' writing and reporting has garnered acclaim from the audience and critics alike. Her newest book, Adventure Divas: Searching the Globe for a New Kind of Heroine (Random House/Villard) chronicles her journey from desk-bound editorial director of the publishing company Seal Press, to global correspondent. The book was named an "Editors' Choice" and one of the year's notable books about exploration by the New York Times.
Her recent print journalism, "A Country of Women," about a surprising group of survivors living in the shadow of Chernobyl, won the Meredith Editorial Excellence Award, was reprinted in London's Daily Telegraph, and The Week, and was selected for the book The Best Travel Writing (2012). The story is being made into a documentary film called The Babushkas of Chernobyl.
Morris also works as a correspondent for the television series' "Outdoor Investigations," "Lonely Planet Treks in America," "Treks in a Wild World," and "Globe Trekker" and "National Geographic Today. In these programs she's scaled the Matterhorn and lassoed reindeer in sub-zero Lapland; she ate rat in Arunachal Pradesh, fended off jealous elephants in India's Andaman Islands, entered a camel race against Tuareg Nomads in the middle of Niger's Sahara, and flicked off endless numbers of Indonesian leeches.
A public speaker and writer, Morris' literary work is widely anthologized and she is a regular contributor to The New York Times Book Review and is a columnist for National Geographic Adventure. She's published two anthologies, A Different Angle and Uncommon Waters, both collections that reflect her affinity for fly fishing.
