Patricia Kennealy-Morrison is an author of science fiction and fantasy novels as well as nonfiction and rock criticism. She has also had her work published in periodicals and anthologies.

This writer was born on March 4, 1946. She may have been born in Brooklyn but she grew up in Long Island. She would attend another university before deciding to transfer to what was then known as Harpur College. She graduated the college with her degree in 1967 in English literature.

She then chose to move again so that she could take the chance to work at Macmillan Publishing as a lexicographer and then eventually their editorial assistant. She was an early female rock critic and a writer at first for Jazz and Pop, a magazine, and then became its editor-in-chief before leaving in 1971. While working at the magazine, she had a big interview when she sat down with the lead singer of The Doors, Jim Morrison.

Once her work duties were done, the two of them started their own correspondence. The two started out as friends but their relationship evolved to that of lovers. She would go on to marry Morrison in a handfasting ceremony in the Celtic Pagan tradition in June of 1970.

The author and the rock star would be married before multiple witness, including a minister. The two also agreed to sign a document that would declare them wed. Even though handfasting, like similar ceremonies, may not be legal unless the proper paperwork is filed through the state, she changed her name legally later on to be Morrison.

For his part, Morrison would address his poems and various letters to his spouse as either Patricia Morrison or his wife. She would also publish her own memoir which focused on the years that they spent together. The memoir is called Strange Days. She also chose to discuss their relationship a little in Rock Wives.

She has also worked as a copywriter in advertising, gotten 2 Cilo nominations, and belongs to various Celtic interest groups. She also happens to belong to Mensa. Patricia would also go on and serve as an adviser on The Doors, the movie by Oliver Stone. She even had her own cameo in the movie, playing a small part as a high priestess that ends up marrying the characters of Jim and Patricia.

Although she participated in the movie, she did have interviews afterwards and even in print was critical about the way that her husband was portrayed and also didn’t like the way that she and other characters inspired by real people were portrayed. She said that the fiction of the director did not have the same resemblance to people that she knew in the past or events that they had gone through in their lives. Her character is a Wicca Priestess in the movie as well, even though Morrison does not identify as Wiccan but is instead a pagan.

The author had an interesting experience in 2000. The baseball team the Mets borrowed a lyric from a Doors song. The “mojo risin'” term soon became the main thing cried by the team and before the playoffs, they invited the author to come and attend a game in that honor. She attended the pre-playoffs game, met all of their players, and generally had a great time, even becoming a fan of the team in the process.

    I devoured the Keltia trio. Truth be told, and I am sure I am not alone, I much preferred PMK’s
    worlds to this one. It is my understanding Ms.
    Morrison had written at least three more of her
    Keltia series and I am not alone in wishing they
    could be published. I am 75 years old so if the
    possibility exists for the publishing of the next
    books to be published, please, do it quickly.
    For giving us the worlds of Keltia I shall always
    be grateful. The mind that created Keltia was a
    great one peopled with a rich and incredibly
    amazing universe and i will forever be grateful
    for Ms. Morrison’s ability to bring so many of
    her readers into her world. She will be missed
    as will herr gifts. She was larger than life!
