The written word is the most powerful tool, and weapon, known to man…

Author Richard Stephens   Richard Stephens Murphy grew up in sunny Southern California and now calls rural Maine home. He is an avid sailor, terrible hockey player, picks guitar, and reads…a lot.
   He is the author of Salty Tails romantic cozy mystery series and Rusty Nails (Cat Detective) short stories. These fun tales are told through the unique and often humorous view of a cat or dog. Rick is also creator of Brandon and The Red Backpack children’s book. All available on Amazon.
  When not working on one of his own projects, Rick is a busy freelance web content writer and book designer for Dark Harbor Publishing.
   Richard shares his home in beautiful Gray, Maine, with his wife, parents, and three black cats. When not writing you can find him reading, sailing, or hiking; depending on the fickle Maine weather.
