Trouble is Brewing…
ROSE thinks her life is pretty sweet. She loves her job teaching in a disadvantaged school, and has just moved in with her gorgeous actor boyfriend, Daniel. The only clouds on her horizon are a headmaster with a passion for new-age team-building and an expensive book-buying habit.
ALEX has always dreamed about working for a glossy women’s magazine. Instead she’s stuck working for Dublin’s most notorious tabloid newspaper, rewriting press releases and covering for her colleague Jodie – a well-connected neurotic who still hasn’t figured out how to use an apostrophe.
SHANNON feels like life is passing her by. When she graduated at the top of her class from drama college, everyone thought it would be just a matter of time until she got her big break. But these days the nearest thing she gets to real drama is catfights in the youth project she coordinates while struggling to pay the bills. Is it time she gives up on her dream and get a ‘real’ job?
When life spins out of control for the trio, will it be a case of storms in teacups? Or will they end up getting burnt?

About the Author
Christine Murray is a fantasy and contemporary fiction writer from Dublin, Ireland. Before pursuing a writing career, Christine studied history at Trinity College Dublin, and went on to complete an MA in medical history. She specialises in social history, and uses elements of her research when world-building in her fantasy series. On graduation Christine worked as a freelance journalist and ghost writer, covering areas from personal finance to film. Deciding that fiction was more fun than fact, she started writing her first novel at 22. Deciding to self-publish due to the poor economic situation she set up her own company, Mermaiden Media, and released her first novel through it when she was 24. The book, Storms In Teacups, went on to become an international bestseller. Christine writes contemporary fiction for women and urban fantasy for adults and teens. One of the best things about writing full time is that it retrospectively justifies all the time she spent reading when she should have been doing something ‘more productive’. When not writing, Christine enjoys reading, watching films, good television series, cheesy pop music and strong cocktails. She has an expensive cosmetic habit and thinks the espresso martini may be the most underrated invention of all time. In 2009 at the age of 22 Christine was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, a disorder of the central nervous system. The main symptoms are extreme fatigue and widespread pain. While the illness has had a large effect on her life, she tries to get on with things as best she can.
