Gloria Morris is a respected private detective with an explosive sense of honor who cherishes frisky ladies, reads Poe and Twain, believes in justice, and kicks a lot of ass. Her investigation into the disappearance of a popular and notorious seductress, whose pervasive presence affects the lives of two compelling women, takes her to San Francisco’s sexual underground and the discovery of treasonous political intrigue. She is assisted by the missing woman’s roommate and lover, Clarissa, and together they engage in a cat and mouse scenario with a powerful femme fatale, who is Gloria’s chief suspect. It turns out that searching for the missing beauty is only one of the problems they encounter. During the course of her investigation, Gloria meets an astonishing lady and begins a life-changing romance. But will this new relationship benefit her work … or deliver her to danger?
I’m from California. I have a master’s degree from the University of California and a black belt in Okinawan Karate. I have explored the USA but have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for most of my life. Hence, I’m familiar with its ethnic, architectural, and epicurean nooks and crannies. In my books I describe the exotic areas of The City with warmth and wit and they are characters themselves in the stories. I’ve published in local newspapers. I admire the beauty, humor, and energy of hardboiled colloquial American English and write in that style.

About Niamh Murphy
Hi there! I’m Niamh Murphy and I’m a bestselling author of adventure books with lesbian main characters!
I tell romantic and exciting stories of gripping adventure and epic fantasy. My favourite places to explore are historical settings, science fiction landscapes, and fantasy worlds. My stories involve exciting characters such as knights, pirates, vampires, and mermaids. But I also tell more down-to-earth stories involving teenage angst, coming out, and exploring lesbian relationships for the first time.
I most enjoy rewriting fairy tales for the modern reader or re-telling mythical stories of old with a sapphic twist. But whatever the genre I choose to write in, my stories always include romance, love, and a lesbian main character.
