Hello there! I’m Joyce Murphy, a passionate children’s author with a love for storytelling, the environment and all things fun and imaginative. With my flaming red hair, much like the heroine in my book, “The Girl with the Flaming Red Hair,” I bring a burst of energy and creativity to every story I write.

Interacting with young readers is one of the greatest joys of my life. Seeing their eyes light up with wonder and excitement when they dive into my books fills my heart with happiness. I aim to create a warm, welcoming space for children and parents, where stories are not just read but lived and experienced.

Living by the sea, the soothing sounds of the waves and the salty breeze inspire my books. My cosy seaside home is where I weave fun adventures that not only entertain but also educate young minds. I believe in the importance of stories to teach children important values that ignite their curiosity for the world around them.

I have been making up these stories all my life and I’m deeply committed to creating books that promote education in fun and engaging ways. Whether it is through different modes of learning or weaving in themes of environmental care, as I did in my book, “The Bee and the Dandelion,” I craft my books to foster love and respect for our planet.

Inspired by the magical adventures I adored as a child, I wrote the books “Kong and the Magic Jungle,” and “Kong and the Hungry Crocodile,” which tell the story of three lost children who befriend a talking parrot and a Magic Gorilla.

If it pleases you, I therefore invite you to order one of these books today (personalised signed copies are available with Buy the Book) and bring home a story that is sure to become a cherished favourite in your child’s collection.

Enjoy my books? Spare a moment to leave a review here on ‘Buy the Book’ or Google. For indie authors like me, it’s a lifeline against the giants of the publishing world.
