Nora Murray grew up near Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the proud member of both a large Irish-Catholic family, and a family led by socially conscious educators. A combination she says formed her faith, work ethic and convictions.

With a journalism degree from UW-Madison, she worked as an award-winning television news producer for several years before switching to public relations. She lives in Summerfield, North Carolina, where she continues writing anything and everything, including her next novel.

Nora lives with her supportive and hilarious husband, her sweet and strong-willed children, and crazy but lovable dogs.
