"It's the Little Things that Kill You" — Maya Murphy

Updated: Feb 14, 2022

Welcome to my blog. I’d like to introduce you to Maya Murphy, the strong female protagonist in my upcoming novel, "Aftermath".

Maya is a paramedic who works outside of Seattle, and she’s seen just about everything during her 10+ years on the job. She works 24-hour shifts on the paramedic unit where, she and her partner, respond to a wide range of emergency calls from: chest pain; breathing difficulty; motor vehicle accidents; falls; gunshots; and so much more.

She loves the excitement; the challenge; the feeling that she is making a difference! For years, she handles the job with warm empathy and unwavering strength to get the job done until…

A radical right-wing militia group executes a police officer and ambushes Maya and her team of first responders on a Pacific Northwest city street, paramedic Maya Murphy’s world is turned on end.

After this traumatic event, she seeks emotional safety in the quiet mountain town of South Lake Tahoe. But while mountain biking on a beautiful trail, Maya and her two dogs discover a dead mountain biker, and she finds herself caught up in the aftermath of a much more personal campaign of revenge.

Set in the adventurous world of mountain biking, whitewater rafting, and paddleboarding, this atmospheric mystery will have you holding your breath every time Maya ventures into the great outdoors. It’s a book about learning to live in the moment, a reminder that merely being in the wrong place at the wrong time can be enough to set off a cascade of tragic events.
