Joshua Mumphrey, a multi-award winning journalist, couldn't’ think of anything else he’d rather be doing than writing novels. His first novel Finding Hope in the (Sarah Hardy Story) series is a tale that is dear to his heart. He loves sharing stories of ordinary people living extraordinary lives. He writes books about hope, love and faith when he can, while juggling a face-paced Graphic Design career. He is thankful for every lesson, every professor and every minute he’s spent working tirelessly trying to perfect his writing skills. He thanks God firstly and his professors for making him into the writer and graphic artist he is today.
"A special thanks to Rebecca Stewart, my Graphic Arts instructor."
Joshua’s days consist of writing, writing and writing some more. He is also, a wildly published Christian columnist and his work has been seen in Inspirational publications such as, Worth Finding, New Identity Magazine, Youth Worker, The Daily You, The Colorful Times Company, The Christian Online Magazine, TDDM (Teen Daily Devotional Ministries), Christian Examiner and Cross Walk Media Network. Other publications that his work has appeared in are: TJC News, Piney Woods Online and UPIU.com.
Joshua’s life hasn't’ always been easy and neither has learning, being labeled as one of the "dumbest kids" in his high school class. But now, he’s learned to transfer that negative energy into something positive by writing his way to success! He was recently awarded in March 2012, for being the #1 News Feature writer in the state of Texas from (TIPA) Texas Intercollegiate Press Association in Division 4. He served two years at his college newspaper as
Editor-In-Chief, Editor-At-Large, Senior Features Editor, Executive Web Editor and Staff Writer.
This author, reporter and Christian columnist resides in Texas with his mother, Teresa and their little Maltase Charlie. Joshua knows, without God that none of his accomplishments could have been within his reach.
"I am thankful to the Lord, to God for guiding my feet along the path of opportunity. It is in that opportunity in which he uses my gift to glorify his name. It is in that gift that I use to touch the hearts and minds of those, who have a listening ear and a accepting spirit. I pray that the works of my hands change lives and break barriers, weakening strongholds and setting captives free. I know, I have been blessed and I'm compelled to use what I believe, I was given and bless someone else's life."
