Maggie was born and raised in Michigan and graduated from Hillsdale College. When not singing, writing, or in the recording studio, she is an Adjunct instructor at a local community college. Maggie is married to Chad Murphy, and they have three children. She tries to find time for several vocal performances during the year, including the Friday’s at the Fountain Concert Series, the concert series at Gallery 49, and the occasional pub concert. 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.
