C.E. Murphy is one of the highly famous authors from The United States, who likes to write her books based on the romance, science fiction, and fantasy genres. She is particularly renowned for writing the widely successful Walker Papers series, Inheritor’s Cycle series, The Strongbox Chronicles, and The Negotiator Trilogy series. In addition to using her original name for writing her books, author Murphy also uses the pen name Cate Dermody for writing some of her novels. Her writing career also consists of writing a graphic novel called Take A Chance. Author Murphy was born on June 01, 1973 in Kenai, Alaska, The United States. Apart from writing the fantasy and science fiction books, she is also credited for writing several comic books and short stories. In one of her interviews, author Murphy has stated that the pseudonym Cate Dermody is the maiden name of her grandmother. Currently, she resides in the ancestral homeland located in Ireland. Along with writing books, author Murphy was also involved in a number of other jobs such as archival assistant, web designer, library volunteer, and cannery worker. However, she maintains that writing novels is her most favorite and primary hobby. Author Murphy began her writing career in the year 2005 and released her debut book in the same year, which was published under the title of Urban Shaman. Since then, she has gone on to write various other novels based on a wide range of genres. It was at the age of 6 that author Murphy began writing. At that time, she used to write only stories and poems, which used to get published in her school’s publication.

Once she submitted 3 poems to the school magazine and the teacher in charge of the school publication selected the worst one among the three. However, she asked her to keep writing and not feel sad due to failure. This is what author Murphy has been doing all these years. The practice has helped her a lot in the long run of her writing career. When she was around 9 or 10 years old, she used to work as a volunteer for a public library. From this, it is quite evident that author Murphy was associated with books from a very young age. Out of all various that she took up in her life, she liked writing the most and has continued with it as her primary profession. For writing one of her books titled Easy Pickings, author Murphy had collaborated with another well known author named Faith Hunter. Faith is widely popular for writing down the Jane Yellowrock series. The book Winter Moon, which is credited to have been written by author Murphy, also consists a few stories written by the novelists Tanith Lee and Mercedes Lackey. She is known to have been brought up in her birthplace in Alaska. But later, she moved to her family home in Ireland and has lived there since then. The members in her family include her loving husband and three charming pets. Author Murphy also has a personal chef whom she considers more than a family member. For most of the time, she likes to keep herself busy with her writing works. This way she feels that she does justice to her job profile as an established and full time writer. In the near future, author Murphy hopes to take over the publishing world with the help of her excellent writings skills and interesting books.

One of the most successful book series written by C.E. Murphy is known by the name ‘Walker Papers’. The series is comprised of a total of 9 novels and 3 novellas, which were released between the years 2005 and 2016. All the novels of this series feature the lead character in the role of Joanne Walker, who is depicted by author Murphy as having shamanic powers and working as a cop in Seattle. One of the most popular books of this series is titled as ‘Coyote Dreams’. It was released by the Luna Books publication in the year 2007. The plot is set in the United States and revolves around the life of the lead character named Joanne Walker. The book opens up by showing that most of the city’s people are not able to wake up. And many others are getting dozed off every day. It appears that instead of the powerful forces coming from the outside, Seattle is getting stormed due to an insidious invasion. Even the fellow cops of Joanne Walker are struck with the blue flu, which has caused most of them go into deep sleep. As the blue sleep continues to spread through the entire city, there is no evidence of any physical cause of it. Joanne thinks that it must be due to some magical power. But, what she wonders why she gets some crazy dreams every time her eyes get closed. Sometimes, she suspects that the dreams are being sent by her long disappeared spirit guide called Coyote. In spite of trying very hard she is unable to understand the messages. She knows that she has to wake up all her sleeping friends somehow and also protect the ones who are still awake. Joanne Walker also tries to figure out the cause of the crazy dreams that she has been seeing recently. The other thing that bothers her the most is the attraction that she feels towards her boss.

The next book published in the series is titled as ‘Walking Dead’. The Luna Books once again released this book in the year 2009. In the opening scene of the plot, author Murphy has shown that Joanne Walker gives up the idea of saving the world from the magical powers. There seems to be no activity in her police detective job and she seems to have come to terms with the shamanic powers given to her. In addition to all these things happening in her life, she is happy that for the first time she has love in her life. She thinks that all this is not bad for her as she was almost dead at the start of the year. But, on occasion of Halloween, her party gets crashed by the arrival of the undead. As she has still not been able to find her missing mentor Coyote, she is required to find out a way to break the spell from which the zombies, ghosts, as well as the Wild Hunt have returned. But for her bad luck, there is no shamanic book that can explain the methods to deal with the walking dead. Joanne Walker knows that if she steps out to stop them without any strategy, she will not be able to come back alive. As a result, she finds herself in an extremely difficult situation and hopes that she finds her Coyote as soon as possible.
