Scorpion Bay by Michael Murphy


Michael Murphy says:
My journey:
I was an avid reader from an early age and always enjoyed writing, but I became a novelist much later in life purely by chance.  My employer sent several employees to a one day seminar called “Power Goaling.”  Each participant was to select and implement one long term goal professionally or personally.  At the end of the day, I had narrowed it down to redecorating our house, writing a novel. I chose to write a novel within one year.  That began my journey as a novelist. Sometimes we have abilities in us and don’t realize it until outside forces intervene. 
By the end of the year, I had written about one of the formative years of my life, 1968.  The novel, Class of ‘68 won the Arizona Authors Association award for unpublished novel of the year and was ultimately published in 2007 by Wings ePress.  I’ve now had six novels published.  My seventh, Scorpion Bay, is the kind of novel I enjoy reading, suspense with humor and a twist at the end.
Book Blurb.
When a car bomb kills the prosecuting attorney and a key witness against a powerful bioengineering industrialist, the blast shatters the life of the attorney’s husband, popular Phoenix television investigative reporter, Parker Knight.  After authorities hit a dead end, Parker risks his career and his life to seek his own revenge. Riding a high tech motorcycle and wearing a black disguise, the crusading newsman inadvertently becomes a media created superhero jeopardizing his quest for justice.

It's an honor being on your blog Marilyn. Would love to hear how other writers came to write their first novels.
