More About Niamh Murphy

Growing up in rural Wales gave me so much inspiration to fuel my imagination.

There were dry-stone ruins hidden away in the woods, a great mysterious tower on the hill, fairy tale castles, and majestic mountains of dark slate.

Not to mention the Welsh myths of dragons and knights we would be told in our school assemblies.

I have dozens of half-written stories and thrilling plots sitting and waiting to be written.

I want to create science fiction stories, fantasy worlds, steampunk heroines, mistresses of detective fiction, paranormal hunters, courageous spies, awkward superheroes, and explore every era of history!

I want to tell tales of knights, mages, mermaids, and space Captains AND I want these amazing stories to be led from the front by powerful women who love women.

I want to write young adult fiction that’s unapologetically queer and I want it to be available for everyone who wants to read it.

This is my focus for the future.

I’ll keep writing, keep creating, and keep fighting for better representation in all forms of media.

If you’re a young person struggling to find stories that reflect your experience, please keep looking.

There are so many of us out here writing for you and we won’t stop until our voices are heard.

If you’re a writer yourself, never give up on your dream.

You have stories worth telling and people who need to hear them.

Happy reading,
