Michael Murphy Senior Administrative Assistant Department of Sociology

BS, Accounting and Computer Science

After more than thirty years spent in non-profit administration, I've returned to American where I first worked many, many years ago when I first moved to DC. When not working I'm writing, taking pictures, or working on my true passion of studying pre-Stonewall US gay history. In my quest to discover the forgotten men and women who went before us, I have traveled to some amazing archives and interviewed countless people, working to learn their stories. My first non-fiction book is in the works. I have 23 novels published with several additional manuscripts in the works. My novels are gay romance as well as young adult coming of age, coming out, positive, affirming stories. My publisher and I want to be sure that gay and lesbian youth can learn that they are not alone, and that they are perfectly fine just as they are.
