This immersive, multi-genre writer does not shy away from diversity of thought but rather embraces the challenge it sets forth. Included in Murphy’s portfolio is her hot-off-the-press houseful of eclectic works of fiction, ‘Speaking Of’; a novel – ‘The Emerald Diaries-Secrets of an Irish Clan'; and a children’s fairy book series, ‘Away with the Fairies’ (Books One, Two, and Three, which includes audio). Whistler Book Awards said of Mary’s writing, “Mary Murphy must be applauded for her absolute commitment...she brings skill and talents as a storyteller...and writes in an imaginative, lyrical style that is both poetic and evocative.”
Mary is also a prolific musician, writing, recording and releasing ten full-length CDs (which include several Irish language pieces). She has added her voice and whistles to countless artistic projects (including a feature film), has been a touring artist for many years and is co-owner of Dove Creek Recording Studios (where all her audio is recorded).
‘Speaking Of’ is currently available worldwide in paperback and ebook formats. An audio book is currently underway for this release and should be available by the end of summer 2023.
Her releases have been hailed as “superlative and engrossing” by reviewers, readers, and listeners. Ms Murphy, born in Wexford, Ireland, is the mother of two grown children and currently lives on Vancouver Island with her husband Paul, a dog named Norah and a cat named Turtle.
