Author Support

I’m Niamh Murphy, author of adventure books with lesbian main characters. I understand how hard it is to get niche and marginalised books into the hands of new readers, but I know my readers want to hear about books from other lesbian and WLW authors.

I believe diverse fiction should be accessible, and marginalised readers need to hear about the great content they deserve. So, if you find this page useful, make sure you share it with other writers.
