Welcome to FionaSherlock.com!
I’m an Irish writer with a particular penchant for emerald noir.
This February I’m launching ‘Inside & Out‘, a poetry collection considering motherhood and current affairs, with support from Meath County Council Arts Office and Creative Ireland.
I self-published my first novel ‘Dark Green‘ in 2018 and have recently been signed by Lina Langlee at Kate Nash Literary Agency. I’m working with Lina on a crime series with a very shambolic protagonist.
A firm fan of themed parties, I create custom murder mysteries, with some of my printable kits for sale over on Etsy (Bespoke Murder Mystery).
After spending a decade in Dublin working in public relations and journalism, I recently moved home to Navan for fresh country air and mid-day fires.

I have been lucky enough to be nominated for a number of awards including:
- Image Blog Awards 2014, Shortlist, Best Newcomer
- Social and Personal Blogger of the Year Awards 2013, Finalist
- Oasis/RSVP Next Top Blogger Awards 2013, Finalist,

‘Lift’ is a modern-day Christmas Carol, and was published in the Sunday Independent for Christmas 2018.
In March 2015 I was awarded the overall winner of the Wills Writing Awards for my short story ‘A Toddler and the Grand National’.
With an attention span snapped by social media, my flash fiction piece ‘When Will Mammy Be Home?’ was published in Number Eleven magazine in 2013.
Who is Dionysus?
Dionysus was the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness and ecstasy in Greek mythology.
