Cecil (“Cec”) Murphey can’t recall when he didn’t want to write. Although he tried to get published first at age 16, he had nothing accepted until he was 38—”only after I’d learned a few things about the publishing industry,” he says. After Cec sold at least 20 articles, he made a double commitment to God and to himself: to never stop learning and improving as a writer, and to do whatever he could to help other writers. Thus began a lifetime commitment and passion to share with other writers what he’s learned along the way. Unleash the Writer Within is his passion and legacy to all writers in the trenches. Since his writing career launched, Cec has written or co-written more than 135 books, including the New York Times’ bestseller 90 Minutes in Heaven (with Don Piper) and Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story (with Dr. Ben Carson). His books have sold millions of copies, been translated into more than 40 languages, and brought hope and encouragement to countless people around the world. Cecil Murphey enjoys speaking for churches and for events nationwide.
