A one-time engineer working for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Boyd Morrison is an American penman. Morrison, who is a quadragenarian and specializes in the thriller niche, was born in early 1967, in the US. He studied Bachelor of Science at Rice University and, for his postgraduate studies, studied industrial engineering, at Virginia Tech, wherein he received a PhD. Morrison has also co-written other books with celebrated American scribbler Clive Cussler.

Boyd Morrison has worked for various high-profile organizations, some of them Fortune 500 companies. For instance, he has worked for Lockheed Corporation on behalf of NASA projects. Another notable company in which he worked is Microsoft, wherein he developed Xbox games. He has also featured in the Jeopardy! contest and he aced.

Morrison has always harbored writing ambitions. Unfortunately for him, his wife was schooling at a medical institution, meaning he was the sole breadwinner. As such, he was working full-time, thereby leaving no room to indulge into his pastime–writing. After his wife completed her medical studies and started practicing, he plunged head-on into writing.

Descriptions of Two Early Books
Boyd Morrison debuted in 2005 and his first book was self-published. However, his books have since been republished by established publishers under new titles. Morrison’s debut novel, albeit a standalone book, is titled The Catalyst, but it was originally published under the title The Adamas Blueprint. Even then Morrison published the book called The Ark in 2009, which is the first book in his first series, titled Tyler Locke series.

The Ark has over thirty five editions; the first edition was initially published in 2009, titled The Ark (alternatively called The Noah’s Ark Conquest, especially in the UK), and the action-packed series is shelved as literary fiction, thriller, mystery, suspense, and action genres.

Another early book published by Boyd Morrison is The Vault. This book is also known as The Midas Code, notably in the UK. It has over twenty editions; the very first edition was initially published in 2011. The featured protagonist in the said series is Tyler Locke. Incidentally, Locke was previously an army combat engineer, but is presently working with a consultancy firm called Gordian, wherein he is situated on a Canadian-based oil rig. His father is a powerful US Army general.

In The Ark, the featured contagonist is Dilaria Kenner, an archaeologist, while the antagonist is Sebastian Ulric, a wealthy chemist but heartless man intent on cleansing the globe. By the same token, in the book titled The Vault, the contagonist is Stacy Benedict while the antagonist is Jordan Orr. Benedict is a media personality and Orr is a man on the quest for material wealth by all means necessary.

On the one hand, the launching pad of The Ark is two assassination attempts on the life of archaeologist Dilara Kenner. During the first attempt, a friend was killed, prompting her to make bolt for it; in his throes of death, the deceased friend told her a cryptic message concerning the discovery of the Biblical Noah’s Ark and about an ancient artifact. During the second incident, she is involved in an aircraft accident near the oil rig where Locke works but she and the rest of the passengers are saved by Locke. People have either been killed or abducted by antagonist Sebastian Ulric after they nearly discovered the location of the Ark; Ulric plans to shelter the brightest earthlings in the Ark, to “reboot” the world thereafter, after he annihilates the rest of the world using a chemical weapon. Now Kenner and Locke are racing against time to save mankind.

On the other hand, the turning point in The Vault is a mysterious informant who informs protagonist Locke that there is a ticking bomb that a malicious person has planted a bomb on the very ferry he has boarded. He teams up with contagonist Stacy Benedict, a language professional, to neutralize the bomb. But the bomb threat is not a random incident. It is an underhand tactic, alongside kidnapping their main characters’ close relatives, used by antagonist Jordan Orr to prompt Benedict and Locke to decipher an encrypted ancient text for a treasure-hunting mission; deciphering it is the gateway to locating King Midas tomb wherein lies unbelievable quantities of gold. But it is not an easy feat because no man has ever accomplished it for two millennia.
