Are your kids looking for something fun and creative to do over February vacation? Local author T.M. Murphy will lead a workshop at the Woods Hole Library called “The Power of Suspense in a Story”, geared toward kids in grades 4 and up (or age 9 1/2 and up). T.M. Murphy will talk about what he’s learned that has helped him write suspense. He will read a suspense scene from his book The Secrets of Code Z and talk about how he wrote it. Each participant will receive the beginning of a suspenseful scene that Mr. Murphy wrote. It will then be their mission to finish it and read it to the group.

T.M. Murphy is the author of the Belltown Mystery Series and Saving Santa’s Seals. Murphy has been featured in 101 Highly Successful Novelists and chosen by Cape Cod Life Magazine as One of the 400 Cape Cod People Who Have Brightened Our Lives. Mr. Murphy and illustrator Mark Penta Co-created Super Strange Story Starters and Creative Coloring and Far-Out Fun. The third book in the Totally Weird Activity Book Series, Unusual Objects in Fantastic Places, will be released in late spring of 2023.

T.M. spends his winters touring schools and his summers teaching young writers at The Writers’ Shack in Falmouth Heights.
