About the Author

Though born in Cincinnati, Ohio and raised in Southern
California, the roots of my family are in New Orleans,
Louisiana.  Long, long ago, my great grandparents, Lee
Murphy and Josephine Jolie-Murphy resided on Perrier

I am an artist, photographer, mother, citizen of planet
Earth, and lover of books and words.

Books can take us everywhere…deep into the human
mind…to countries far and near…to distant galaxies…to
imaginary places.   

So far, my novels have taken us to: rural Louisiana, Los
Angeles, the swamps of Georgia, Hollywood, and New

I invite you to read my books and join the journey.   
Question is, where will find ourselves next?  All aboard!
