Upon retiring from the San Francisco Journal, he devoted his time to writing.

In 1995, Maurice published the Literati monthly magazine. His publications included 4 volumes of Selected Works of Maurice Chuck, Passionate Years in San Francisco, Chinatown and Outspoken. Maurice’s trilogy, Raving Currents, Raging Tides and Towering Waves, was completed and published earlier this year.
