Born and raised in South West London, Charlotte Murphy has been reading since she was three years old.
Growing up in a house with younger siblings required her to find a way to escape the responsibilities of the eldest child and escape into any world she chose. Her love of reading and the worlds she found within those pages, eventually morphed into creating her own stories and finally, after false starts and revisions, she took the leap to release her own work into the world.
After graduating in English and Creative Writing at Brunel University back in 2010, Charlotte worked consistently within the corporate realm while writing in her spare time. Early work can be found on her Wattpad account that consist mainly of romance novels. She won a short story contest with Mills & Boon’s: Harlequin Presents… in 2008 and self-published her first novel in February 2018.
After many revisions and design updates, Charlotte’s Fantasy Trilogy The Antonides Legacy was released in its entirety in February 2020. A project fifteen years in the making, Charlotte hopes these books will reach out to an audience who appreciate excitement, simplicity and diversity in their choice of reading.
Charlotte is currently working on the prequel to The Antonides Legacy as well as fleshing out the beginning plot of a new novel called The Court of Night and Wolves.
