His favorite pastime was and still is doodling cute and fun little characters. As Murray entered the working world he utilized his natural creative talent in his graphic design profession. Illustrating being his true love, Murray started looking for freelance illustration work. Murray had no idea that answering a Kijiji ad would help his long time ambitions come to life. A well known children's book author and disability advocate, Jewel Kats gave him a shot at illustrating one of her children's books. That experience gave Murray the courage to pursue other illustration contracts and author his first book "My Brother Is Special: A Cerebral Palsy Story." Murray is currently working on his next children's book.
"This very short book is an opportunity for parents to help
children begin to learn that sleep is necessary. It provides us
with the energy to enjoy our awake time activities. Every child,
teen and adult remembers the excitement experienced the night
before a special event. It is truly a skill to be able to
self-soothe and relax. Justin's story will be a wonderful addition
to your bedtime story time routine."
