You found me!
My name is Colin Mulhern and I love writing. It's something I've always done and probably always will. Getting published is nice, but really I'm in it for the fun of turning out stories. When I was a kid, I wrote adventure stories, then horror in my teens and a couple of adult crime novels in my twenties.
My first published books were YA thrillers. Clash was first, followed by Arabesque, The Boy Who Buried Dead Things and Here in the Poison Garden.
I moved into younger children's fiction by chance. I've always loved horror, both in movies and fiction and had an idea for a silly story about a fairy tale cottage taking on a zombie attack. I knocked the story out in a few days and sent it direct to Maverick Publishing. The book was published as Buttercup Sunshine and the Zombies of DOOOOOM. This was followed by a second story called Buttercup Sunshine and the House on Hangman's Hill. (Due out this September).
As for what's next... not really sure. I'm currently writing a dark fantasy for adults. Not sure if it will ever see the light of day, but I'm have a lot of fun writing it. A mixture of historical fiction and horror. I'm hoping to finish a working draft soon. I keep meaning to make YouTube updates, so if you're signed up to my channel, you might get some news that way.
All the best,
