Meet Colette

Colette Marie Murphy is a writer. Colette’s passion, as she jokingly describes, is for “words and stuff.”

She has written a number of short plays, poems, and articles — some of which you can find in books and on the Internet — 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 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. She then went on to complete a Master’s Degree in Literature and Writing Studies from California State University, San Marcos. Her thesis is titled True Love’s Bite: The Twilight Saga as Fairy Tale and Media Virus. 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 related subjects.

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