What if? That's the question from which each of my stories originates. It might be sparked a random thought or when I take note of someone on the street. I must write the story even when what the character is going through on the page is entirely alien to my experience, even if it's just to clear space in my head for the next idea. And if it's a poem? That is when things can get wonderfully surreal.
The fiction written as "AK Moray" is from a different place in my imagination than what I write under my given name. The women of the "In Heels" stories are strong, vulnerable, curious, wise, and foolish. They act with agency, but can still be caught in events just looking for the way home. They are people.
The poetry collections, published as "Robert C. Murray," are verses of observation, emotional reaction, and delicious flights of imagination for both the consideration and enjoyment of the reader. As with most poems they are best when read aloud amongst friends.
AK Moray's fiction and Robert C. Murray's poetry, all from my mind and my heart, I am proud to make available to you. I invite you to enjoy them and share them with the special people in your life, and to reach out to me and tell me what you think of them.
