Welcome!

Welcome to the web site for Maura McHugh – an author of horror and dark fantasy fiction living in the West of Ireland.

Maura writes across a variety of media, including prose, comic books, plays, and screenplays. She has written two collections: Twisted Fairy Tales and Twisted Myths, both published in the USA, and the non-fiction Midnight Movie Monograph of the iconic film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (which was nominated for a BFS Award for Best Non-Fiction).
