A.M. Murray was an immigrant to the USA after WWII, at age 3. He earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology but then got drafted into the Army during the Vietnam era. He came home and bummed around the country a while, worked lots of jobs, went back to school, got a degree in Photojournalism with lots of grad work in Mass Media. Worked as video producer for a big company but was forced out due to office politics. He wondered if it was him or just his luck. He did some research and came up with a book, "The Best of Luck." Other books done or in the works reflect his experiences, interests -- "The Secret of the Serpent Mound," about death at the mysterious earthen effigy; "In the new Country," about immigrants on a dead end street and the possibility of deportation. "A Jekyl & Hyde Woman," about good versus evil, set in New Orleans.
