SORT BY Relevancy
Luke never wanted to be a writer, in fact coming from Queec he wanted to be an NHL star.
In the winter of 2000, after sustaining a season ending eye injury in hockey, Murphy took up a new hobby. After reading novels by his favorite authors: Greg Iles, Michael Connelly, Harlen Coben, among others, Murphy realized that he wanted to be like them - entertain readers and allow them, like when he read, to escape reality and for a moment be in another place and time. One day, with an idea in mind, he sat down at a computer and began writing. Murphy wrote a little everyday, around an intense rehabilitation schedule, and before he knew it he had completed his first manuscript.
He continued to hobby write through the years, honing his craft, making time between work and family obligations. He constantly read, from novels in his favorite genres to books written by experts in the writing field. He continually researched, reading up on the industry and process. He made friends (published and unpublished authors), learning what it took to become successful.
In 2006, after 10 years away, Murphy retired from hockey and moved back to his hometown.
In the winter of 2007, Murphy began work on DEAD MAN'S HAND
