MOIRA FOWLEY-DOYLE

Moïra Fowley-Doyle is the author of The Accident Season and Spellbook of the Lost and Found. The Accident Season was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, nominated for the Carnegie Medal and won the inaugural School Library Association of Ireland Great Reads Award. Moïra lives in Dublin with her husband, two daughters and two cats.

Moïra Fowley-Doyle is half-French, half-Irish and lives in Dublin with her husband, two daughters and two cats. Moïra's French half likes red wine and dark books in which everybody dies. Her Irish half likes tea and happy endings.
 

Moïra spent several years at university studying vampires in young adult fiction before concentrating on writing young adult fiction with no vampires in it whatsoever. She wrote her first novel at the age of eight, when she was told that if she wrote a story about spiders she wouldn't be afraid of them any more. Moïra is still afraid of spiders, but has never stopped writing stories.

Moïra's first novel, The Accident Season, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize and the North East Teen Book Awards, nominated for the Carnegie Medal and won the inaugural School Library Association of Ireland Great Reads Award. It received two starred reviews and sold in ten territories. Her second novel, Spellbook of the Lost and Found, was published in June 2017.
