About the Author




Author Elizabeth Ann Johnson-Murphree

I am a freelance writer of fiction and non-fiction.  Born in Alabama to a Native American (Chickasaw) father and an emotionally absent mother, raised by my father, my Native American great-grandmother and an African-American woman whom were all grand storytellers.  My love of art and painting came through the teachings of my grammar school teacher Ms. Speaks, I now paint  when the well of words dry up while writing.

I have lived in Wisconsin for over fifty years, my parents and older sister have since passed away; although Alabama has many memories and I am far from my southern roots, I continue to write stories that reflect my memories.  I enjoy an active retirement, my children, grand and great grandchildren, oh yes…grand-dogs and my own four-legged companion Mason.   I  write and paint daily.

I have written books on family genealogy covering four families and many generations.
