Joseph is an Irish writer based in Gibbstown, a small Gaeltacht area in Co. Meath. Having attained a B.A. in Film & Drama and an MSc in Marketing from Trinity College, he has always been drawn to storytelling, whether in a narrative or advertising context.


From the age of 16, Joseph began writing screenplays and directing short films which led to a ‘Most Original’ Award at Fresh Film Festival. After graduating from college, Joseph moved to Los Angeles where he landed a role as a Digital Content Specialist, with emphasis on brand storytelling.


He has also gained a following on TikTok with his unique brand of comedy sketches that have gained him 72,000 followers and 20 Million views in total (@broseph_murray).


Joseph’s debut novel Fling was acquired by Jayne Osborne at Pan Macmillan in a two-book deal.


Fling is the story of Tara and Colin, a Dublin couple. When they met sparks flew, but now, six years and several failed IVF attempts later, their marriage is hanging by a thread. When Fling, an app for anonymous affairs, is launched, both Tara and Colin find themselves logging on, just to see. But while Tara and Colin might think they’re done with their marriage, fate may have other plans . . .


Fling will be published as a hardback in February 2023.
