The Murphys are back

Well, actually they aren’t. They’re going far away. But there is an account of their journey now.

Do you remember Henry Murphy, the Air Traffic Controller and his family?


Henry and his family find themselves on a small spaceship that is taking them away from Earth. After a stop and another start, the trip goes past Saturn, into deep space. The Murphy family does their best to fit in with the others. Suzy enjoys piloting, Mark learns a thing about farming and matters of the heart, and Hannah discovers her scientist side. Henry gets a job that resembles his old, traffic controller job a little. It’s just on a bit grander scale. After an interesting journey they arrive at Ballata, the home planet of Derlan, Heron and Rajin, and all their other friends. Once there, however, odd things happen.

If you enjoyed the adventures of the Murphys in book 1, Pioneer, I hope your joy will continue in this sequel, “Ballata: Murphys in Space – II”.

At the moment of posting, the book is available at  Amazon and its other local e-stores, Barnes&NobleApple iTunesKoboScribd, and Vivlio.

The paperback is still in the works. I’ll announce that as soon as it’s done.

Wishing you the best of the best,

  1. Really enjoyed the Murphy Family books. I like how you did the slow build up for the {spoiler} reveal and the danger of {spoiler}.

    I’m seeing a sort of connection between the Mirror Earth series and the Murphy series. Earth Prime is a crowded crazy place, the other other earths, & now Ballata are inhabited by small populations. Make me wonder if there is a someone, something, setting up small groups with a specific cultures and levels of technology. To see what they grow into, how they change over time.

    1. Hi John

      There is no connection between the two sets, except my imagination. I write about what concerns me, and the madness here (Murphys) and the possibilities for a better life (Mirror Earth) come from the same place.
      Glad you like the books!
