About J.M. Murphy
Contemporary Fantasy Author
J.M. Murphy Speaks…
Looking back I have never fitted into any slot, and I guess this is why I love to create magically gifted characters, that like me are looking for that bond, that feeling of connection with somebody who likes oddballs, understands difference and accepts human frailty and create for these characters a journey into a reality, where they can finally feel like they belong.
When I am not writing or daydreaming, I love walking in dark, moody, wet, windy, weather and taking photos of our Celtic coastline and spooky looking trees.
After a brisk battle with the elements, I like nothing better than to come home to a good book, a strongly percolated
coffee or if I am in the mood for it, a steaming hot toddy (whiskey) with plenty of cloves and a little lemon.
From an early age my favourite reading companions have been moody, fantastical, emotional stories full of magic, mystery and adventure and it is from this love of the mystical that the yearning to share my own imaginings was born.
And as I travel down this exciting new road of fantasy writing, my greatest wish as an author is that you, the reader will enjoy reading Calloway Falls and ensuing books as much as I have loved writing them.
J.M. Murphy is the pen name under which I write my books.
Tasters - Calloway Falls
Rings of Existence
‘Although all life exists inside the multiverse, we are not all at the same level of development, so to separate us from those who would easily overpower us, Deca made seven separate rings of existence.’
‘The perezu live in the sixth ring of Oguard. This is their training ground, where the perezu learn to corrupt and enlist servants for their master, Sura.'
The Multiverse Key
‘The key, it was a way out of the multiverse, its possible undoing. Deca needed free will, and free will needed an out.'
And as I travel down this exciting new road of fantasy writing, my greatest wish as an author is that you the reader enjoy Calloway Falls and ensuing books as much as I have loved writing them.
If you read any of my books and have a few minutes to spare, I would be grateful if you could review them for me.
Reviews really help us indie authors who don’t have big budgets to compete with big publishing houses.
Dark claustrophobic tale that packs a powerful punch.
