My New Book
I’ve recently completed my third book and I’m now marketing that book – titled “Dream Job” to publishing houses and agents. You can expect that this new memoir – an in-depth look at the adventures I had when I moved to Panama eight years ago as a female executive – will launch to the public in the first part of 2018.
If you are in the publishing industry and interested in receiving a submission from me, please contact me here: Contact JuliAnne Murphy and I’ll get back to you right away.
Until then, I’m head down, making all the final tweaks and putting all the spit and shine on this new book, to make sure it’s publication ready and fantastic!

My Previous Books
Most of us have been stirred by something that someone wrote at some point in our lives whether it was a news story, a film or a novel. Which means that a writer somewhere had to originate those words in order to help you envision the scene, the characters, the time frame, and the actions. When you describe writing like this, you quickly see that writing is an art.
But, let’s be honest. Art or not, I was terrified to publish my first two books under my real name at the time I wrote them.
TERRIFIED with a capital T.
Why? Well, for that story, refer to the About JuliAnne Murphy page here.
Now, it’s 2017. It’s a different time and a different space for me, as a writer and as a human being.
And, the time has come for me to reclaim my two best-selling books as my own.
Not every author can say that their books did as well under a pseudonym as mine have. The fact is that The Gringo Guide to Panama: What to Know Before You Go reached #1 in the Books and Panama categories on Amazon within three weeks after it was released in late 2012. And, my second book, The Gringo Guide to Panama: More to Know Before You Go reached #2 in that same category when it was released in early 2014.
Like a proud mama bear, my heart pounds with gratitude and pride when I think back to those moments.
And, I am very grateful to you, my readers, who over the past four-plus years have bought these two books, and liked them, and sent me embraces in the form of emails and comments and reviews. Thank you. Your appreciation continues to warm my heart and lift my spirit.
So, what you’ll see below are the details about those two Amazon bestselling books.
