Moïra Fowley-Doyle




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 is still afraid of spiders, but has never stopped writing stories.

“Accidents happen. Our bones shatter, our skin splits, our hearts break. We burn, we drown, we stay alive.”
Moïra Fowley-Doyle, The Accident Season

“Do no harm, but take no shit.”
Moïra Fowley-Doyle, Spellbook of the Lost and Found

“There are no ghosts; only the dust in the light, our breath and the wind in the quiet, and the feeling that something, or a lot of somethings, are watching us. So maybe there are ghosts after all.”
