Dara Murphy

Dara Murphy loves inventing silly, fun, and unexpected stories. Ever since third grade, when she wrote about the adventures of a speck of dust, Dara has enjoyed making creative writing a part of her life.

When she's not writing, Dara never misses an opportunity to try something new. She's backpacked through South America, worked as a tree planter, joined a ski team (without actually knowing how to ski), and learned how to swing dance.  She also likes to play music at local open mics and act in community theatre productions.

Dara has a diploma in film and video production and a degree in education.  She currently lives in Montreal and teaches at a school for students with developmental disabilities.
