Local musician turns new novelist
Hammond musician Mike Murtha of Trigger Happy has become a published author.
Murtha's book, "Stranger in a Small Town," is the story of a high school boy named Chris whose family moves to a fictional small town in Iowa from New York.
Chris, Murtha said, is a very creative boy.
"He's into the arts, guitar, vocal, taken voice lessons, theater," Murtha said. "He gets to Iowa and it's just all about their football team."
