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).
She also appears regularly on Irish radio discussing Pop Culture.
NewCon Press is publishing the first collection of her original short stories – a mixture of previously published work along with new stories, with an introduction by Kim Newman. It’s called The Boughs Withered (When I Told Them my Dreams), and is scheduled to be launched at Worldcon in Dublin in August 2019.
