The creative process is somewhat magical in that thoughts become images on an art canvas or words transferred into books [and now of course digital eBooks]. Murphy's artist statement sums it up " Using layers of color and the placement of lines to depict energy, movement and space, the result is the creation of an abstract image which is meant to evoke the imagination.." The same applies to his books, which in place of color and images, his words and pictures bring to mind a variety of stories taking the reader on enjoyable trips through time and space.
Murphy is an award-winning screenplay writer, has published a variety of books, both fiction and non-fiction and his latest books include a complete book of 27 short stories (Critics' Choice) and a true story of World War II, a book of 50 ghost stories (Eerie Ghost Stories From Every State).
His screenplays have been recognized by a number of film festivals: Beverly Hills Film Festival made Amber Room Treasures an official 'selection'; Charleston Film Festival in the top 25%; It won The Finalist Award in the Mountain Film Festival; and "You Can Call Me Jay" won The Finalist Selection in the Mexico based "Oaxacan Independent Film and Video Festival. Actress Betty White after reading the "Jay" screenplay said she "loved it.... especially the characters"!
