Hello! I'm Sharon Dempsey, crime writer and book lover.
Come in and have a look around.
I write stories, long and short form, and deliver creative writing workshops. Who Took Eden Mulligan? my latest novel, is out now in Ireland!
My crime debut, Little Bird, was published in July 2017. A Posy of Promises, my contemporary romcom novel, was published in June 2018, followed by My Virtual Life.
I am currently working on my new crime series and throwing myself into academic life as I undertake my PhD.

Find me on twitter @svjdempz and say hello!
