Hello, I’m Siobhan…

I’m an award-winning author of books for young adults and adults.

And I’m passionate about daring others to love, create and dream.

My new novel, The Moonlight Dreamers, is a celebration of daring to dream.

And I’m ‘over the moon’ that Amazon have chosen it as their YA BOOK OF THE MONTH!

Here’s what some early reviewers have to say:

Within the pages of this book I lost myself, but it was within these pages that I found myself too. Sensational and unforgettable, falling in love with this book came as naturally as breathing. The best book I’ve read all year.Blog of a Bookaholic

The Moonlight Dreamers is the book I had waited to be written for years, female empowerment, realistic, creative female characters, ordinary girls with extraordinary ways of looking at the world. I completely loved the idea of a group of girls finding each other by chance, all with a similar need for a real honest to god friendship with no fakeness, each supporting and encouraging each other. We need more of this in the world. This was a completely magical story. I loved it. If you like books about being different yet still fitting in this is the book for you. P.S. Oscar Rocks!Lovereading4kids.co.uk

AMAZING! Really gorgeous holiday read about unlikely friendship, moonlight adventures & Oscar Wilde! A Summer Must Read.’ @drawingonbooks

I loved this book for several reasons. I loved the girl relationships within this book. I loved the diversity in this book. The characters are all from very different backgrounds some of which I haven’t seen portrayed in YA before and it was nice to see stereotypes challenged and representation of these sort of girls out there because in every case the girls are so well done. All in all a brilliant read which I can’t recommend enough. The Overflowing Library

‘A beautiful book about friendship, standing up for what you believe in and finding the courage to be yourself and find your own unique place in the world.’ Lamont Books

‘This inspirational story about following dreams and the power of female friendship is as rich, warm and cheering as being curled up with a mug of hot chocolate on a bitterly cold day. Utterly charming through even the girls’ most challenging moments, the author’s portrayal of female friendship and self-empowerment is sublimely enriching, and the novel ends with a glorious sense that the girls’ journey is only just beginning: a lifetime of fortifying friendship and Moonlight Dreaming awaits.’ Love Reading

‘A charming story of female friendship and empowerment, creativity and embracing who you are without conforming to what other people think you should be. Maia and a Little Moore

‘Out of all Curham’s books, this one is particularly gorgeous – and I’m not just talking about that beautiful cover. The only way I can think of to describe The Moonlight Dreamers is that it’s like a hug, and it’s absolutely perfect for fans of Holly Bourne and Keris Stainton. A must-read.’ The Mile Long Bookshelf

‘Curham’s The Moonlight Dreamers is written in her trademark intuitive style and demonstrates a keen sensitivity to the issues facing young women such as body image, social media, matters-of-the-heart and friendships. Embedded in her work are positive messages that encourage individual self-expression and resistance to social pressure to conform … An inspirational story where sensitive, creative types find the courage to be themselves.Readings.com

‘I really enjoyed reading this book despite being a few years older than the target teenage readers! I cared about the four girls and wanted to see how things panned out for them. This is an excellent book. It is well written with good characters and addresses many real life situations for teenagers. It is also liberally sprinkled with quotations from Oscar Wilde which has to be a bonus!’ DnS Media

    Dear Siobhan Curham
    I love Shipwreckend it’s Not fantastic or good it’s amazing
    Normal I hate reading books , but your books I can read every time
    I also read Captured and I love it to, but i don’t like the end , because Grace is with Cruz on the island. I hope you write an third part.
    I will read more from the mistery Island and Grace and Cruz and Hortense .

    Trank you for the best two books in my life!

  16. siobhan says:

    I’m so pleased you enjoyed them – especially as you normally hate reading! What a compliment. Thank you x

  17. Harriet Heron says:

    Hi Siobhan, is there any news on Part 3 of the “Shipwrecked” Saga?
    Thank you

  18. siobhan says:

    Hi, no news at the moment I’m afraid. Will post on here the second I hear something…

  19. Danielle says:

    Hello, I have just finished both of the Shipwrecked books and I know you have written that your publishers are waiting for TV to catch up etc but I was just wondering, has the 3rd book been written yet and just waiting to be published, or is it in the process of being written or have you not started it yet? I just ask because I really enjoyed the books and am so intrigued to find out what happens next. You are an incredible author and deserve much more credit for your work.

  20. siobhan says:

    Ah, thank you so much, that’s so kind of you. I plotted the series as a trilogy but my publisher only contracted me for the first two until the TV series was made. Unfortunately that side of things has been taking ages to come together so the way it stands at the moment is that the third book is plotted but not yet written. It’s very frustrating and I’m getting emails from readers every day now, asking about it, but unfortunately it’s completely out of my hands. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear anything… S x

  21. Estelle says:

    Hi Melisa,
    It was so lovely to meet you today – I had so much fun! I’m so pleased you enjoyed the workshop and I really hope you enjoy the book. I’ve been invited back so hopefully see you again soon 🙂 Siobhan x

  25. Theresa says:

    Dear Siobhan,
    I’m an austrian girl and I’ve read your books called ” Shipwrecked” and “Captured” these are the best books I’ve ever read. It would be amazing for me if you will write a end to this great story because I really want to know if Grace gets back her old body and what to Hortense happened in New Orleans.
    Thank you

  26. siobhan says:

    Thanks so much for your lovely message. I really want to end the story too – if not in a third book then at least in a short story. I’ll let you know as soon as it happens. S x
