Natalie Murray has been writing to make people smile ever since her short story A Dog Story with a Happy Ending won first prize in a writing competition when she was eight (she didn’t quite understand titles and spoilers then!).


Now slightly *cough* older, Natalie is irreversibly committed to writing novels she loves to read: anything involving high stakes, touches of history or fantasy, and star-crossed lovers with buckets of exquisite angst. She is the award-winning author of Emmie and the Tudor King (March 31, 2021), Emmie and the Tudor Queen (July 28, 2021), and Emmie and the Tudor Throne (2022) from Midnight Tide Publishing.

Natalie grew up in the urban dreamland of Sydney, Australia and lived in Hong Kong for ten years before moving back to Oz in 2019. She’s worked as a television entertainment reporter, corporate copywriter, Bollywood movie dancer, dementia care worker, and about a thousand other things, but Natalie knows what she loves doing most of all: looking after her family and writing YA (young adult) and NA (new adult) romance fiction.


When she’s not writing fiction, you can find Natalie clinging to her family (literally; she’s super affectionate), packing or unpacking a suitcase, making lists of things she'll never have time for because she's too busy making lists, or playing on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
