Tiffany Murray



Tiffany Murray’s first novel, Happy Accidents (2005), is the coming-of-age tale of 11-year-old Kate Happy, set on a rural farm on the Welsh-English border, and has drawn comparison with Stella Gibbons’ Cold Comfort Farm. Her second novel, Diamond Star Halo (2010), tells the story of Halo Llewelyn and her unconventional family who run a recording studio in rural Wales. It is a story of first love and rock n’ roll and has drawn comparisons with Dodie Smith’s I Capture The Castle. Both books were shortlisted for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize, and Guardian critics selected Diamond Star Halo as one of the best of the fiction year, 2010. She has had short fiction and non-fiction published in various collections, and features in The Times, The Telegraph and The Guardian. She teaches creative writing for adults and schools, at The National Writers’ Centre for Wales, and for the Arvon Foundation, and is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Glamorgan.
