Maggie was born and raised in Hillsdale, Michigan, and graduated from Hillsdale College with a degree in secondary education, English, and history. When not working on the farm, writing, or in the recording studio, she is an Adjunct Instructor at a local community college. Maggie and her husband live in Michigan with their three children.
Murphy released her first CD, Reflections from the Journey, in December 2009. She describes the album as “a collection of memorable songs from my lifetime, spanning the decades, sung as a family on vacation, to ease a child to sleep, to say goodbye to a loved one, and even new found treasures for the road ahead.”
In May 2012, Maggie published the book, Sara Dippity, which was illustrated by her (then 5th grade) daughter, Mary Kate. Sara Dippity is the story of a young girl who is saddened by the loss of a loved one. She finds peace and healing through her encounters with a cardinal in her back yard.
When she has time, Maggie enjoys blogging about the writing process, performing music, and the chaotic and wonderful adventures that come from raising a family.
