About

 

 

Noah Murphy grew up in Montgomery County, Maryland which features prominently in his writing. He graduated from Goucher College with a double major in philosophy and religion. After a stint in accounting for several years, he started-up his pet sitting service again, which he had been doing off and on since he was a teenager. In his spare time Noah volunteers at a not for profit parrot rescue. His love of animals provides inspiration for many of the anthropomorphic characters in his books.

Part of the generation just before autism awareness began, Noah was diagnosed at age 26. For him, a later diagnoses was a hidden blessing. Being forced to be “normal” gave him the skills and knowledge to publish and run a business.  Autism also unhinges his mind, allowing him to approach situations and characters in strange new ways, and seriously enough to make them work.

An avid writer, Noah Murphy is the author of the fantasy novel Deltan Skies, and the superhero novel Ethereal Girls.  He  also enjoys sharing his opinions on life, literature and popular culture with his 29,000 followers on Twitter and on his blog.

    Seriously, you sound like a very socially conscious, animal loving, persistent and creative guy. I will read Clear and Feathered Danger and give you a review if you like. I also write SF, fantasy and horror, YA just like you when you were 12, you gave me a good idea for my next YA book about teen alien left behind. He could drive a truck! Young people rock. Your parrot is beautiful and I like your leather couch. You are about the age of my grandsons. It’s a good idea to write about a new place called Terrall (Terra?). I’m grateful I’m on Twitter and I’m grateful I’ve lived so long to live in what is for me a new age. Thank you for piquing my curiosity about someone with such a bizarre sense of humor. lol
