About the Author

C.P Murphy lives in Western New York with her 3 daughters and her bird, Mr. Darcy who was named after the hero in one of her favorite novels, Pride and Prejudice. She started writing at an early age and had a string of poems published in her early 20s. After writing and publishing her first book, Everlasting Love, penned under her full name Christine Poole Murphy, she had a taste of the publishing world and knew she was born to be a part of it. Her latest novel, Amelia's Story, is 8 years in the making. Originally published with the title, "The Cold Case of Millersport: Amelia's Story," in 2007 was never promoted because of complications in her personal life. C.P Murphy retired the book, taking it off the market, when she realized that the story wasn't exactly the way she wanted it to be. Now six years later the story is being re-released, the way it was meant to be. Besides writing historical fiction, C.P Murphy is a freelance writer and freelance editor and/or proofreader. She also writes reviews, blogs, and does manuscript prep for authors who wish to self publish their books but need help designing the interior and getting the manuscript ready for print.
