He is the father of 9 children one of whom passed in 2003 and has 11 grandchildren. To say that he is a product of his environment is an understatement. He is the result of his environment having grown up in between the black side of Moultrie and the projects of Tallahassee. Jerald started to read at the early age of three and it is that reading along with the influences of various Muslims, Rasta's and "militants" that shaped and molded him Into the writer he is today. His greatest influences were his Father, Willie Lawrence Murphy and his Mother, Mildred Jolly Murphy Williams. In the eighties he was a medics in the army and after his tour of duty he returned to Tallahassee where he was asked to be a community columnist for the local newspaper. He also pursued his love of cooking which he turned into a carrer. Eventually becoming a chef he was the head sous chef for the Mill Bakery Brewery and Eatery for the 96 Olympic games in Atlanta Ga. He returned to Tallahassee and was the co-host as well as commentator for the popular radio show "Sunday flava with Robert Blake on 90.5, Florida A&M's radio station. He has hosted numerous poetry shows and has been involved in some community activism as well. In 2005 he joined MySpace where after two years he became a prominent figure in the writing community and for two years straight he had two of the top 10 blog's on MySpace out of over two million blog's. Today Jerald can be found antagonizing readers on Facebook or his children and grandchildren at home. Jerald's greatest ambition is to be published.
