Fictional events and characters create possible solutions to the problems the real world and the United States face today in the novel Spare Time, by Michael Murphy.
Turmoil in the Middle East. Economic crisis in Europe. Violations to the Constitution in the United States. Division, fear, entitlements and class envy are tearing the nation apart. Starting to sound familiar? In this novel, efforts are finally made to change the direction of the nation, but to what lengths will people go to stop these new ideas, what might others do to save them...and how could it all end?
Murphy strives to bring to light the potential resolutions to the troubles placed upon the world governments and their citizens, foremost the United States, all while creating an enjoyable and fictitious read for his audience rich with perceptive characters and a clutching plot.
Michael Murphy lives on the plains in a log house built with his bare hands, bustling with tradition. He is a retired airline pilot, is active in the alpaca industry, and operates a Bed & Breakfast right out of his rustic home.
