About

Iseult Murphy

Horror, fantasy & science fiction author

Iseult Murphy started writing at a young age, entertaining her family with magazines that she wrote and illustrated. In her teens, she won several local and national short story contests, including three time overall winner of the RDS Young Science Writers competition, and had work placed in international writing contests such as the BBC Wildlife Poetry competition.

Iseult is drawn to horror, fantasy and science fiction, as she feels that the most difficult aspects of life can be best explored through the lens of speculative fiction.

She is a member of the Horror Writers Association, her short stories have appeared in multiple venues, and she has published two short story collections, and two horror novels in the 7th Hell series.

7 Days in Hell, the first book in the Irish zombie series, 7th Hell, is a Speak Up Talk Radio Firebird Book Award Winner and an IAN Book of the Year Awards Finalist.

She currently resides on the east coast of Ireland with five dogs, two cats, a parrot and a couple of humans. When she isn’t writing, she enjoys reading, art and spending time with her animals.
