Release Blitz: Before Dawn – Laura Murphy

Feisty New Yorker, Max, falls for her mysterious coworker, Tommy, who is fourteen years her senior. Wanting to please him and meet his beauty standards she conflictingly conceals her natural hair from him and avoids tanning so her skin doesn’t get too dark.

Max tightly holds onto their forbidden romance while trying to figure out who she is and her place in a world she doesn’t always fit in. Too caught up with her feelings she becomes oblivious to the consequences of her actions. As tragedy strikes Max has to face her own worst enemy, herself.

About the Author

A little about me, at age 13, I fell in love with writing. At that age, I created a story in my notebook, and later my friends would read and add comments in the margin of it. In 2009 my dream came true when my first young adult novel, Reckless Perfection, was published. I received multiple positive reviews on the coming of age story. In 2016 I published the sequel to the above novel, Chasing Ghosts which was also well received. My latest chick-lit novel Before Dawn is coming soon and hopefully will be beloved.

I create characters that are strong and likable, despite their flaws. Nothing about my characters are black and white. They are all multi-layered individuals who may not always make the right choices, but most times learn from their shortcomings. I try to keep the storylines relevant and realistic by addressing topics such as faith, family dysfunction, friendship, relationships, mental health, fertility issues, amongst other topics that many women can relate to.

As a Haitian American writer I find it necessary to have diversity in my writing. What makes my writing unique besides the multi-layered characters and strong storylines are the strong dialogue that captivates readers and makes this book a page turner. On my free time I enjoy spending time with my loved ones including my husband and parents, listening to music, going for walks and trips to the beach.
