Andrea Murray has been a teacher for 20 years, and it was being a teacher that got her started as an author. “I started writing my first book when I was teaching a class of mostly eighth grade girls. I wanted to give them a book that they could really be proud of where the hero is a girl,” Murray said. “I write young adults’ books, mainly science fiction and paranormal. Currently, I am working on a ghost story.” Murray is a junior high English teacher and her husband is a coach. They have two children, Olivia, 10, and Wyatt, 8. “Olivia loves the idea of my being an author. She will often help me with ideas. She is very curious and loves to read. I know I may never be rich being an author, but I want to be able to show her that you can do whatever you set your mind to and you should never give up on your dreams. I am so thankful for everyone who has supported me along the way.” Murray is author of “The Vivid” trilogy and “The Omni” duology.
