Iseult Murphy started writing at a young age, entertaining her family with magazines that she wrote and illustrated as a child. In her teens, she won several local and national short story competitions, including three time overall winner of the RDS Young Science Writers competition, and had work placed in international writing competitions 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 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.
Iseult’s speculative fiction short stories have appeared in over two dozen venues. ‘Zoo of the Dead and Other Horrific Tales‘, a collection of some of her previously published horror stories, is currently available on Amazon for $3.99 ebook and $6.00 print version. A follow up collection of 12 fantasy, horror and science fiction stories was published in 2019. ‘Return to Hades and Other Adventures‘ is available on Amazon for $4 ebook and $10.00 print version.
More recently her work has appeared in Liquid Imagination and Frost Fire Worlds.
