Amy J. Murphy is not a Jedi. (Although she’s married to this Scottish guy that claims to be one.) But, she is a fantastic liar.
After discovering this power at early age, she wields it for good instead of evil (even though the evil part remains highly tempting) by writing science fiction. And, it’s worked out well so far.
In addition to being an Amazon best-seller, two novels from her ongoing Allies and Enemies series were voted Dragon Award finalists for Best Military Science Fiction Novel by DragonCon. And, she’s managed to successfully infiltrate the ranks of SFWA along the way. Recently, she’s joined Apex Magazine under the enviable title of “slush reader.”
When not appearing on panels at various science fiction conventions, she lives in Vermont with the aforementioned Scotsman/Jedi and their two canine overlords.
