Welcome to the website of Irish historical fiction author Susie Murphy.

Susie Murphy

A ‘bright new voice in historical fiction.’  – Hazel Gaynor, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Came Home.

Susie loves historical fiction so much that she often wishes she had been born two hundred years ago. Still, she remains grateful for many aspects of the modern age, including women’s suffrage, electric showers and pizza.

A Class Apart, Susie’s debut novel, is the first volume in her series A Matter of Class, which begins in Ireland in 1828. Sign up to Susie’s newsletter for all her latest news about this series and receive a free short story, When Class Began To Matter, which is a prequel to A Class Apart. Watch the book trailer for A Class Apart below:

You could also check out Susie’s blog, where she chats about various aspects of writing and publishing.

Lastly, to make bookworms drool, here is Susie’s library at home, where the books are organised alphabetically by surname and chronologically by publication (and woe betide anyone who messes with the system – even her husband, who owns most of them):
