Maureen Murdock

Maureen Murdock is the author of The Heroine’s Journey: Woman’s Quest for Wholeness, which explores the rich territory of the feminine psyche and delineates the psycho-spiritual journey for women. It was her response to Joseph Campbell’s A Hero with a Thousand Faces when he said to her, “Women don’t need to make the journey. In the whole mythological tradition the woman is there.” The publication of The Heroine’s Journey touched a nerve in women’s consciousness around the world. It was quickly translated into French, Spanish, German, Dutch, Yugoslavian, Italian and Korean and has recently been published in Farsi. It has been used by screenwriters and novelists alike as a model of the woman’s journey. Jill Soloway recently mentioned its cyclical structure in “Paging Joseph Campbell” in the October 2014 issue of Los Angeles Magazine. Murdock’s subsequent book, The Hero’s Daughter, emerged out of the response to The Heroine’s Journey by women who wrote to her about their own experiences as “father’s daughters.” It was first published by Ballantine and later issued in paperback as Fathers’ Daughters: Breaking the Ties that Bind. It has been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Hebrew, and Chinese. Murdock is also the author of Unreliable Truth: On Memoir and Memory; Spinning Inward: Using Guided Imagery with Children; The Heroine’s Journey Workbook and a short Kindle, The Emergence of Bipolar Disorder. She writes a blog on the criminal justice system and addiction at her website:
