About the author…

martaAuthor: Marta Dunphy-Moriel

This Andalusian & British author was born in 1988 and was brought up in a large bilingual family. Marta has always lived between two countries: in the lovely West Sussex town of East Grinstead, in the South East of England, and in the quaint coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, in the South of Spain.

Her love of fantasy began as young as she can remember and she started to write stories as soon as she could hold a pen, telling them to her three younger siblings, Molly, Peter & Manuel. She finished writing her first novel when she was ten years old and she has never stopped writing since. Her vast collection of Spanish & English work includes several novels, short stories, children’s books, short film scripts and a play. The prophecy of the Shalforen: Hangman’s Hole is her first published novel and, in it, she analyses people’s vision of Life & Death.  The idea for the “Prophecy of the Shalforen” collection came to her at the age of twelve, one lazy summer day while she was sitting in her grandparent’s dinning room watching time go by.

At the moment, apart from working as a lawyer (She studied Law & Management) she is working on the next book of the Prophecy of the Shalforen Series. Also,  enchanted by the novel “Little Women”, she decided to follow Jo March’s footsteps and jumped at the opportunity of becoming the author of the weekly episode of a newspaper serial in http://www.sanlucardigital.com
