About A M Murray
Alison Murray is an Australian currently working in Tokyo, Japan. She became addicted to reading thrillers and mysteries as an escape from the science stream she’d elected to follow at school. She devoured Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels and all of the books in the ongoing series authorized by Ian Fleming Publications. Her list of favorite paperbacks and Kindle downloads has exploded to include most of the thriller and mystery genre authors to the present time.
Lack of time subdued the desire to write her own thriller, but as she mentored her daughter through senior creative English classes, she decided to take charge of her aspirations and make it happen - a life transition still in progress.
With undergraduate and post-graduate degrees in science, education, and the Japanese language, she’s a former university lecturer and freelance journalist in Japan for The Economist, New Scientist and other journals, magazines, and an online news service. Currently, she spends her days working as the executive director of a large European business organization in Japan and her nights and weekends writing fiction.
In her spare time, Alison loves reading and regaling her family with storylines. She speaks three languages—English, Japanese and Chinese (but can only say “You’re a bad boy” in Chinese, which is always directed at one of her dogs yet could come in handy when talking to some of her imaginary characters).
