Carson Morton 

Carson Morton... Picture ... was born in London, England and moved with his family to the United States as a young lad (11). He grew up in Point Lookout and Long Beach on the South Shore of Long Island and attended college at The State University of New York at Oneonta, finally settling in the town of Woodstock, New York in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. He worked as a professional musician for many years, making an album for United Artists Records with his group Razmataz, and playing with the likes of John Sebastian, Billy Preston, and John Hall of the group Orleans (and now NY State Congressman). He began his writing career as a playwright, having a number of works published and produced both here and in Europe. Turning to screenwriting, he was represented by Writers & Artists Agency in L.A. He was commissioned to write a number of screenplays as well as having a number optioned. He won first prize in the 1998 Hollywood Film Festival Columbus Discovery Awards for his screenplay, FINDER'S KEEPERS. In the Nineties, he wrote and recorded the theme song for the first Fox Children’s Network’s Cartoon series, ZAZOO U. When the network made its debut, the first thing heard was Carson singing the theme song. He also worked for the Fox Children’s Network as a consultant. His song ONE MAN’S TRASH IS ANOTHER MAN’S TREASURE has been recorded by a number of artists as well as published in a Macmillan & Co. textbook. To honor his father - who was born in Dublin, Ireland - he recently became a dual Irish/American citizen. He’s an avid sailor and kayaker and can often be found on the numerous large lakes in the Nashville, TN area or, when he’s lucky, off the coast of Southern Ireland. He currently lives in Nashville, TN, and is actively involved with the local Celtic music scene and has in the last few years released a CD of children's music, a CD of original Celtic-flavored songs, and 3 CD's of old ukulele songs. He often performs at the world-famous Bluebird Café in Nashville. For relaxation, he calls up a swell dame and goes down to the Lower Broadway honky-tonks for a little swing dancing. He has three sons. Stealing Mona Lisa is his first novel.
