Michael Murphy


Michael lives in Arizona with his wife of thirty-eight years, two cats, four dogs and five chickens who produce a steady supply of cholesterol. He enjoys the deserts, mountains, lakes and wacky politics that make Arizona a diverse, exhilarating place to live and serves as the setting for his new thriller, Scorpion Bay.  Comfortable in a home office writing novels, he tried sky diving, stating, "From two miles up, Arizona's beauty is breathtaking, and even more vivid plummeting toward it at 120 miles-per-hour."A writer from an early age, Michael majored in Journalism before graduating with a degree in Business Administration. While establishing a career, he set aside writing until 1997.  A business seminar project on establishing long-term goals rekindled his passion for writing. Scorpion Bay is his seventh novel. Michael is active in several writing groups including the Arizona Authors Association and Authors Exchange Group, teaches beginning novel writing seminars at bookstores and libraries and writes character driven psychological thrillers.
