Hello there!

I’m Lorraine Murphy, the author of Into the Woods and numerous published, and winning, flash fiction stories. I love to take everyday situations and twist them into terrifying tales.

A software engineer by profession, I’ve had many jobs including slimming club leader, adult educator, charity co-founder, chairperson, activist and entrepreneur. Oh, and mother and carer. As a teenager, I adored Stephen King and later found myself on the jury of Ireland’s longest Murder Trial.

When I’m not writing, I’m always into something, whether it be competing in/ for my Toastmasters club or jumping out of a fully functional airplane. I live in Westmeath, Ireland with my husband Brendan and three taller children.
