Hi, I’m JAMES J. MURRAY
I’m that NEW WRITER, the one with fresh adventures of murder and international intrigue. My novels often include the deadly trio of MURDER, MAYHEM and MEDICINE.
I’m from Louisiana originally but now live in South Texas. Like most writers, I come from rich experiences that offer insight and depth into what I write. I’m a clinical pharmacist specialist. That means I know a lot about drugs: their origins, their therapeutic effects, their beneficial uses and even their misuses. After years in direct patient care, I’ve recently freed myself from those responsibilities and now indulge in one of my other passions: FICTION WRITING.
We’re told that fiction is nothing more than a believable lie. Basically, it’s an untruth. Good fiction, however, is taking that untruth and reshaping it into something that resembles reality. I love reading good fiction, so now I write it. I’ll have done my job as a writer if after reading the last page of one of my stories you say, “Could that really have happened?”
This blog is to introduce myself and to build my platform so that you’ll become familiar with my writing style. I’ll be posting new blogs regularly (once a week) and I’ll talk mostly about Murder, Mayhem and Medicine. But sometimes I’ll add interesting information about my writing experience and at other times I’ll provide tidbits gained from my pharmacy background. I promise to be interesting and fun!
