Rachael Murphy

Rachael started writing short stories because she did a Creative Writing Course on a whim. She is firmly outside her comfort zone but, strangely, enjoying it! When she isn’t writing (which usually means staring at a computer screen), she tolerates working to earn money and dreams of living a life free to pursue her dreams, once she figures out what they are. She has a cat.

Rachel Casey

I'm an aspiring writer from Dublin with a Masters in Creative Writing, and not sure what to do with it. I write about whatever comes into my head, but would ultimately love to write in the mystery/thriller genre. Although I do love a good re-write of a fairy tale.

Sarah Childs

I am a writer from the inside out. It grew in me and came out organically. I remember having one of my essays read out in class once, when I was in secondary school. I remember thinking...maybe? Years later, when I was working as an academic, my writer's spirit forced its way out of me. I've been writing ever since.
