Murray Pura is a Canadian published author of fiction. Pura resides in the southwestern Alberta area.

Pura was born in Canada in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He has taken the time to travel throughout a lot of Canada as well as the United States and Asia, the Middle East, and Europe.

Pura was ordained in 1986 to be a Baptist minister. He then went on to serve five different churches in his home of Canada and was the head speaker at different engagements there and in America. He has contributed to a ‘Life With God’ Bible. He has been nominated for several awards including The Dartmouth Book Award, Paraclete Fiction Award, John Spencer Hill Literary Award, and Kobzar Literary Award of Canada.

The author first had his work featured and published when he was in his teenage years. He had been writing for some time before this happened. As an adult he is now a published author that collaborates with a variety of publishers traditional and independent. These have included Baker, Zondervan, Harper Collins, MillerWords, Barbour, and Harvest House.

Pura writes in different genres as well. These include historical, fantasy, romance, action and adventure, inspirational, Amish, Civil War, and others. Pura says that the challenge for him is to try and provide the reader with entertainment inside the genre they are reading but to also try and transcend it at the same time so that the reader gets an epic story that focuses on different parts of what it is like to be human.

Pura writes quite a few books a year. The amount that he has published will be different depending on the contracts that he is offered or what he is looking at regarding opportunities to write something of fiction or nonfiction. He says that about every year he is able to release up to three works. He has come a long way since writing his original stories when he was younger, which included writing for his mother at age nine or ten and his peers in high school.

Pura’s first novel to ever come out in print was titled Mizzly Fitch. The book enjoyed a new edition print in 2018. His first book that came out in the United States was titled A Bride’s Flight with Barbour. He says that many of the ideas that he has when it comes to writing include things that he has lived and seen and takes a lot of his fiction from experiences in real life. He includes inspiration such as travel, getting to know new people and friends better, as well as things such as art, relationships, reading, and the things that he experiences on a personal level as well (fears, joys, hopes, faith, tragedies, struggle).

Murray Andrew Pura is the creator and the author of the Zoya series of fictional novels. This series first became available to readers with the release of debut novel Zo in 2008. The debut novel was quickly followed by the sequel three years later. The third novel in this series is titled Beautiful Skin, followed by the fourth book in the series, A Sun Drenched Elsewhere.

Zo is the first book in the Zoya series. In this book, readers are introduced to the main character of Andrew Chornavka. He has vanished from the twenty-first century and taken the Trappist’s cowl, all so that he could try to forget a century that came before it. He’s fled to the United States to be at a quiet and peaceful monastery.

But even though he has moved, it seems that his past is still able to track him down. The Vatican has sent a delegation and now they are here, full of questions to ask him. Most of them focus on Zoya, his little sister and the youngest. Andrew is extremely surprised when they tell him that she is an actual candidate to enter sainthood.

At first Andrew doesn’t want to speak with them and just wants to deal with the gardens, dairy herd, and various prayers. But finally he begins talking. The conversation that he has takes him to a place with topics that he doesn’t want to go over and brings to life things that he would have preferred to be dead all together. Things that were lost have become real again.

Andrew knows that he is telling a story, one featuring a family that did its best to retain their love and stay together when everything else in the world was doing what it could to pull it apart. At the same time, he has a feeling that the archbishop that is speaking to him really wants a unique story, something involving an angel that has been in the presence of god.

The only problem is that he hasn’t experienced this miraculous world. His sister appears to not have either, but is that really the truth? Read this book to find out, the first exciting book of the Zoya series!

The White Birds of Morning is the engaging second book in the Zoya series of fictional novels written by Murray Pura.

Andrew has been spending time in a quiet monastery along with his other Trappist pals. However, he’s already experienced contact and interest from the outside world. The Vatican has already looked into his past, the one thing that he has been desperately trying to leave behind. He wants to leave all of this in the past and just get back to the quiet and calm world of meditation and peaceful prayer.

He soon discovers that the Vatican is not willing to quit that easily. A second delegation has been sent to visit him, disrupting the world that he has chosen to quietly live in. It’s led by the former soldier and archbishop that wanted to declare his sister a saint. The questions this time are different, however.

This time they’re about Germany, Russia, Ukraine, the second great war’s Eastern front and its entire world. It’s also looking to find out more about his family that either were part of the war or those who wanted peace. Andrew is willing to give the archbishop some of what he wants. But will this honesty start to bring back memories that he doesn’t want revealed? Or is this just what he needs to free himself from that past? Read this book to find out!
