Patricia Kennealy Morrison March 4, 1946 – July 23, 2021

American SF & mystery author Patricia Kennealy Morrison has died in her sleep. She was 74.

Morrison’s published works include rock criticism, a memoir, and two series of science fiction/fantasy and murder mystery novels. Her books are evenly divided between the series The Keltiad and The Rock & Roll Murders: The Rennie Stride Mysteries.

Her other significant book was Strange Days: My Life With And Without Jim Morrison [1992].

As first a writer and then the editor-in-chief of Jazz & Pop magazine in the late 1960s, she was one of the first women rock critics. She was a Dame of the Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Hierosolymitani, a High Priestess in a Celtic Pagan tradition and a member of Mensa.

Her sister Regina passed away earlier this year with cancer, and her handfasted beloved Jim Morrison in 1971.
