Meet Colette

Colette Marie Murphy is a writer. Her passion, as she likes to say, is for “words and stuff.”

Colette has written a number of short plays, poems, and articles — some of which you can find in books, on the Internet, and on NPX — and she is currently working on her first full-length play and a few different novels. More to come on all of those!

Whether she is writing a novel, a play, a blog post, a poem, an essay, or any other form, Colette approaches each work with a focus on deep character development and a keen ear for dialogue.

Colette earned a Master’s Degree in Mass Communication and Media Studies from San Diego State University and a Master’s Degree in Literature and Writing Studies from California State University, San Marcos. She has worked in both on-campus and virtual academic writing centers as a tutor/consultant, as well as taught post-secondary courses in public speaking, composition, research, popular culture, and similar subjects.

You can sometimes find her sharing her thoughts and musings on Instagram and TikTok.
