Mark E. Murphy graduated from Medical College of Georgia to receive his M.D. with honors. He has since founded a medical practice and served on the boards of several prominent medical associations, including the Georgia Medical Association.
Murphy’s creative writing career began in 2004 with the publication of the short story "The Funeral" in a collection of works entitled "O! Georgia!" Shortly after, he attended the Iowa Summer Writing Festival, where his creative spark and passion for short stories was re-ignited. Two years ago, the Savannah Morning News brought him on as a regular family columnist, where he shares reflective thoughts and gentle observations on life and family each week.
