The shady underworld of the grade school essay black market was Amy Murphy’s introduction to the possibility of writing things for money. Although real life intervened and her career path took a separate direction from this gig, she continued to work on personal writing projects in the science fiction and horror genres. Originally from New Orleans, Amy now shares a home with her husband and a very entitled dog in the lovely state of Vermont. And, you're looking at a newly minted member of the Science Fiction Writers of America, baby!

Allies and Enemies: Empire (Book 5) is due out soon. Thanks to some diligent beta-readers, it looks like I’ll be able to publish well ahead of my original target deadline. Look for pre-order info by the end of this week (June 28th). I hate to leave things on a “cliff hanger” but book 5 should be well worth the wait.
In the meanwhile, I’m very pleased to share the beautiful cover art created by Laercio Messias. [Check out his other work here.]

When a deadly conspiracy reveals a heart-wrenching betrayal, the Fates offer Sela the revenge she craves. But there’s a cost…

I took a break from killing myself over prep for the next book(s) in the Allies and Enemies series (as well as a billion other projects to have a thought-provoking interview with Kirk at Troubadour Magazine. Click the link here to experience the very strange faces that I apparently make when I’m racking my poor brain. The subject? “Science Fiction as Analogy”.
