I must confess…

I have to confess 2 things. The first is I really didn’t want to do this. As a fiction author, I just want to write my next novel. But my publisher was insistent that I create an Author Blog (or platform). What would I write about? My story? Breakfast? Whining a great deal to my wife about it, I had to come up with a URL. JohnMurphy.com was taken, and I didn’t like the variant’s, JohnMurphyAuthor, etc. Then while riding a Harley to the Superstition Mountains near Apache Junction, AZ, This URL came to me. Folks at my publisher gave it the thumbs up cuz it catches your attention and is kind of memorable.

The second thing I must confess… I’m kind of liking this. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I do.
