Moira_photo2019

Moïra Fowley-Doyle is half-French, half-Irish and made of equal parts feminism, whimsy and Doc Martens. She lives in Dublin where she writes magic realism, reads tarot cards and raises witch babies.

Moïra’s first novel, The Accident Season, was shortlisted for the 2015 Waterstones Children’s Book Prize & the North East Teen Book Awards, nominated for the Carnegie Medal & won the inaugural School Library Association of Ireland Great Reads Award. It received two starred reviews & sold in ten territories. Her second novel, Spellbook of the Lost and Found, received a starred review from School Library Journal and was shortlisted for the 2017 Irish Book Awards. Her third novel, All the Bad Apples, received a starred review from Booklist and is shortlisted for the 2019 Irish Book Awards. Moïra is also one of the contributors to Stripes Books’ Proud anthology (2019), compiled by Juno Dawson.
