About Debbie

Debbie Murphy is a prolific writer and storyteller and has spent many years creating fiction and non-fiction for a variety of projects.

Creative Writing is Debbie's passion and it comes in many forms. She works on her own novels for children but also works on various commercial projects, food and health care contracts, working as a published writer and ghost writer for many companies. These cover all topics and Debbie is particularly interested in pieces of work that require in-depth research.

As a past health care manager and trained in nutrition, Debbie has also been a ghost writer for many cook books and lifestyle projects. She has her own newspaper column called "Food Glorious Food" and writes regularly for "Pulse" magazine and local businesses.

With three children, a hoard of animals, a large gin collection and having a huge love for food, Debbie is both busy and happy. She enjoys taking on challenges (such as a crazy bike tour around Cambodia and Vietnam for charity) as writing inspiration can come from all places and all states of mind!

When she isn't writing or rounding up sheep, Debbie will be found running, cycling or walking her border terrier and is a firm believer that exercise is good for the soul. Most of her ideas come from time on the road or muddling through fields and encourages everyone to invest in outdoor time to keep the mind healthy.

Debbie obtained a Masters Degree in Creative Writing from one of the most prestigious writing corners of the world - Canterbury, where she walked the cobbled streets musing Chaucer and his Tales. She has also attended many writing courses to sharpen her craft further and to develop a healthy and productive writer's life and is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

With her belief that life is enriched by learning, we should never stop reading and as a writer this is great way to fill your boots with thoughts and ideas. Debbie reads everyday and her reviews of books are placed here on the blog - you never know, you may find one that you want to read too.

With the world now at our fingertips, embrace technology and the variety of ways to keep connected. Find your inspiration here with Debbie, for you, your children and your own interest, as no matter how crazy the world becomes there is always a place, a desire and a need, for creative writing.
