Margaret Murphy Book and Novel

Margaret Murphy - Author


Margaret Murphy’s crime thrillers have been published in the UK, the USA, and in translation across Europe, receiving accolades from broadsheets and tabloid newspapers alike, as well as starred reviews from Publishers’ Weekly and Booklist in the USA. She has been shortlisted for the First Blood award for crime fiction, and the Crime Writers’ Association (CWA) Dagger in the Library; she was the joint winner of the 2012 CWA Short Story Dagger. Margaret is founder of Murder Squad, and a past Chair of the CWA. She was RLF Writing Fellow in Liverpool and Chester from 2008 to 2011. Margaret has been a countryside ranger, science teacher, psychology student, and dyslexia specialist. Her lifelong passion for science is reflected in her painstaking research for her novels. In June 2013, she will publish her first collaborative novel, EVERYONE LIES, with forensic scientist Prof. Dave Barclay, under the pseudonym A.D. Garrett.
Six of her titles were published in eBook for the first time by Random House last December. Check out The Murder Room, where you can also read, free of charge, her short story, LOW VISIBILITY.
