MURRAY PURA lives near the Montana-Alberta border because he loves the Rockies and the wild regions within them. He creates stories in almost every genre--romance, adventure, suspense, Amish, military, historical. He has more than forty titles in print. Several have won awards in the US and Canada and a number have been bestsellers. He is especially excited about his new ISLANDS series, set in the South Pacific in WWII, co-authored with Patrick Craig. Murray writes from his studio, which is a combination of library, home gym, writing space and music room.
