About This Author

K M Murphy was born in Stirling, Scotland in 1980 and was brought up in a small mining village. Her writing career began when she woke up one day and decided, "I'm going to write a book today." Although kept busy with a part-time job in education, and another in bridal retail, doing voluntary work and being a mum and wife, she feels that she has most definitely found a new passion in writing. Taking inspiration from her childhood and life experiences, she writes with a very down to earth and refreshingly honest tone. Her other great loves in her life are her friends and family, singing and dancing, anything sparkly, flavoured gin, Christmas time and Yankee candles.
