J. G. Morris' works of poetry are based on personal life experiences which was a source of therapy in dealing with personal tragedy in later years. Writing poetry, short stories and song writing gave her a chance to expand the many facets of her creativity by producing a book full of fictional and non-fictional imagination.

Reflections in a Waterpool, Dripping Rain and Light of Day spans writings of at least 30 years and makes for interesting reading. It also includes the debut of the Illustrator, 9 year old Caitlin McCaslin of which in her name partial proceeds will be donated to the M.I.N.D. Institute.
