Work With Me

sean1If you are looking for someone to write something, either for professional or personal purposes, I can probably help. If you’re seeking a manuscript consultation for your novel or memoir, I can definitely help. If you’re looking to navigate the increasingly complicated, but exciting world of self-publishing, I can give you guidance. I can also offer strategic insight on all aspects of the publishing industry, including how to query agents, how to pitch projects and how to avoid wasting time (and money) promoting your writing endeavors. If you’re trying to jumpstart or refine business networking efforts, or need to understand (or make contacts within) the tech industry, particularly the world of consumer electronics, I can point you in the right directions. I’m happy to give you my thoughts on the best approach to your project. To discuss options, availability and pricing, please contact me!

I’m the writer-in-residence at Noepe Center for Literary Arts at Martha’s Vineyard. I have been publishing fiction, reviews (of music, movie, book, food), and essays on the technology industry for almost twenty years. I’ve appeared on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and been quoted in USA Today, The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Forbesand AdAge. In addition, I’m an associate editor at The Weeklings, where I contribute a monthly column. I write regularly for PopMatters, and my work has also appeared in Salon, The Village Voice, The Good Men Project, All About Jazz, AlterNet, Web Del Sol, Elephant Journal, Punchnel’s and Northern Virginia Magazine. My best-selling memoir PLEASE TALK ABOUT ME WHEN I’M GONE was released in 2013, and my debut novel NOT TO MENTION A NICE LIFE was published in June 2015.

My first collection of non-fiction, MURPHY’S LAW VOL ONE was released in 2016; the second volume will be released in 2017.

I studied English at George Mason University and have an MA in Literature. Selected sampler of published pieces HERE

It’s early in that lamentable decade of the 2000s, and while the good times continue to roll in corporate America, they won’t be rolling for much longer—and no one knows it better than Byron, the Everyman narrator of Sean Murphy’s witty and wise firecracker of a debut. If you liked Joshua Ferris’s AND THEN WE CAME TO THE END, you’ll love NOT TO MENTION A NICE LIFE. Byron might not have a future, but Sean Murphy certainly does.
