You found me!

Welcome to my little corner of the internet.

My name is Colin Mulhern and I love writing. 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 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. 

I currently write adult fiction under another name, but one day I'd love to return to children's and YA.

All the best,
Colin M.
