About Me


James Murphy is a writer working within the genre of Crime Fiction.

His first novel in the Terror Trilogy, The Rise of Terror, was

first published in 2016 and achieved a second print run with

Excalibur Press in 2017. Having been met with excellent

reviews, James has since achieved Professional Membership

Status with the Irish Writers Centre and has recently released the second book in the Terror Trilogy, The Terror Within.

After obtaining a Single Honours English Degree from

Queen’s University Belfast, he embarked on a teaching career,

first entering the classroom almost 20 years ago. In the

intervening years he has become a successful educationalist,

holding the offices of Head of English Department, Vice

Principal and School Principal along the way and guiding

schools both in Northern Ireland and across the UK to

leading edge status.

It was after a visit to a Medium and a well-timed word from

his wife that gave the west Belfast man the confidence to get

writing, and he’s never looked back since.
