Indie Sci-fi Author and Narazu Founder Cerece Rennie Murphy introduces Narazu, a new online platform designed to bring the best in independent sci-fi and comic-culture content to the fans who love it most.
Cerece fell in love with science fiction at the age of seven, watching “The Empire Strikes Back” at the Uptown Theater in Washington, D.C. with her sister and mom. It’s a love affair that has grown ever since. She is the national bestselling author of six books, including the Order of the Seers science fiction trilogy, two books in the award-winning Ellis and The Magic Mirror children’s fantasy series, and To Find You, a time-bending, historical romance.
Cerece launched Narazu in October of 2016 because she believes, as all sci-fi fans do, in the power of independent, yet like-minded individuals to save the world. To learn more about Cerece and her upcoming projects, please visit her website at www.cerecerenniemurphy.com.
Clarence Young (aka Zig Zag Claybourne) loves cross-genre work and believes a writer can be like an actor, inhabiting a delightful variety of roles and genres. However, his heart belongs to science fiction. When not writing (or fiddling on Facebook) he loves promoting great art and posing the Great Questions, such as whether anybody can ever be funkier than Prince. Check him out at www.writeonrighton.
