2012 Georgia Author of the Year Nominee
Shelly Hargis Murphy grew up in the desert Southwest in a horticultural-challenged environment. She married her college sweetheart and they moved so often the next 25 years with his coaching career she only planted annuals in pots. It wasn't until they settled in Georgia in 1993, that she could finally put down serious roots. By 2002, when she received certification as a Georgia Master Gardener, she'd made enough mistakes to fill a how-not-to-garden book. She and her husband, Ed, live in Carrollton, Georgia.
