As an emerging crime author, Anger Always Flowers and The Original Night Stalker: Portrait of A Killer are two of Justin Murphy's biggest successes and in different ways. The former is about a Sicilian immigrant to New Orleans avenging the murder of his Cajun lover at the hands of his former mob boss who resurfaces years later as a Born Again Televangelist. While being his second biggest fiction seller, this is a work garnering critical acclaim with a 5 Star Review. In contrast, the latter is based on a real life serious of murders in Southern California between 1979 and 1981 with one last known murder in 1986. Names and locales were changed for legal reasons. Along with elements that were fictionalized and combined. It has been on The One Hour Mystery Thriller & Suspense Short Reads section of The Amazon Bestseller List.
Other notable works he has written in the crime genre include the novel The Truth About Murder and short novellas such as Everyone Loves A Scandal, Incident At Dealey Plaza, Do You Really Know Me?, and Murder In Texarkana. He has also written many shorter works in other genres such as science fiction and fantasy, with The Ancient Astronaut Files and Perfect Child, Imperfect being the best known examples. Perfect Child, Imperfect being very important to him as the main character is Autistic and he has helped raise a brother who is Autistic from a young age. Another genre he writes in is Non-Fiction Entertainment involving his A Fan's Guide To... series covering such filmmakers as Steven Spielberg, Alfred Hitchcock, Rod Serling, and Stanley Kubrick. Other notable examples in this vein are Web Series: The Wave of The Future? and The Disney-Star Wars Reboot: Analysis and Predictions For The Sequel Trilogy and Media Spinoffs.
Justin Murphy hopes to continue to continue to explore the divided between critical acclaim and commercial success, if he is able. Something he has been curious about for close to a decade. The successes of Anger Always Flowers and The Original Night Stalker: Portrait of A Killer give him his first taste of this dual success, regardless of genre or story length. Though his most successful genres are typically Southern Crime Fiction and Non-Fiction Entertainment. Either way, having a 5 Star Review and an Amazon Bestseller may be able to afford him opportunities to explore story ideas he never thought possible.
