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.

 

 

Quest for the Perfect Pizza

Quest for the Perfect Pizza

What makes the perfect pizza? Who is to say? It’s a question for the ages. For me, the perfect pizza is the style an individual likes from childhood. I grew up in upstate New York, in the country-side, with mountains and crystal clear streams. Most of my friends from...

Shhhh…t

Shhhh…t

In New York City for about 10 days, what author wouldn't love to do some writing in the opulent public spaces of the New York Library?  I brought my laptop computer and headed out to spend my Sunday inspired. The first disappointment, that stunning room seen on the...

Ooh Rah!

Ooh Rah!

You may or may not know, but I was a Marine.  My oldest son is currently a Marine officer and last weekend, my wife and I went down to Camp Pendleton to watch him deploy.  With that as background, it probably makes some sense that I write military science fiction....

Koalas have no ribs! Amusing hug photos.

It's an outback legend that Koalas don't have ribs, but that's not true. They have a rib cage and 11 rib pairs, vs. 13 of most other mammals. Anyway, on with it... Sipping the great Australian wines from Red Earth Wines last week brought to mind the trip “down under”...

Would a Government Really Kill People?

OH, YOU BET! Governments throughout history have killed more of their own people than have been killed in all wars combined, according to Professor R.J. Rummel of the University of Hawaii. He's the author on several books which clearly outline the history of...

What is Love? Question for the Ages…ANSWERED!

What is Love? Question for the Ages…ANSWERED!

It's a mystery to most of us.  What is love? Ask a thousand people and you'd likely get a thousand different answers. Love is caring, love is sharing, God is love, love is eternal, love should be unconditional. The list goes on and on. Love, love, love, love, love. We...

Impressions of a Hallowed Hog

Impressions of a Hallowed Hog

Again, I'm not a motorcycle expert, but I'd like to share my experiences of riding as a newbie. I took the safety training course on a 250cc Honda Rebel. There were about 12 students in the class, some had experience, most had not. Five of them were under 18, which...

Looking for Ribs? Small Town, Big Find!

Looking for Ribs? Small Town, Big Find!

If you're ever on your way to Snoqualmie Casino around meal time, stop by The Woodman Lodge Historic Steakhouse & Saloon in Snoqualmie, WA. My wife and I had been shopping for skis in North Bend, WA, hoping for some end-of-the-season bargains at Mt. Si Board and...

Inspiration in Peru

When traveling the world, there's a great deal that can inspire one's soul. The Pyramids, the Great Wall, the Eiffel Tower, the list is lengthy. Once in a while, I've stumbled upon some interactions with the locals that really stand out in my memory more clearly than...

Riding a Rocket

I enjoy riding motorcycles, but I'm still a novice.  I also don't have many opportunities to ride so I haven't purchased a bike of my own yet,  My first experience with a Harley Heritage Classic Softail was much better and less scary than I'd anticipated. I was...
