About Edward Morris

Ed Morris is a retired civil trial lawyer. He and his wife, and 5 children, sailed for 5 months alone in their tiny boat exploring uninhabited islands. He was president of International Brotherhood of Magicians, and performed 21 shows at the famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. He entertained on stages throughout the world, and in 50 remote native villages in 10 countries of Africa, and in monasteries of Asia, and in presidential palaces.

He lectured on cruise ships about unusual magic beliefs of different cultures, and how to live without stress, and the advantages of a single six-year term for the U.S. President.
