Ruby J Murray

Writer, journalist, peripatetic

I’m an Australian writer and the Director of Content at MICRO, a non profit building six foot tall science museums.

This website has collected bits and clips. And a link to a lot of broken glass.


Running Dogs is based in Indonesia, and explores the fraught relationship between Australian aid workers and Jakartan culture. It was released in 2012 through Scribe, and is represented by Fiona Inglis at Curtis Brown.

The Biographer's Lover is being released in 2018 by Black Inc. For press surrounding the release, please check out the Black Inc. website.

I appear regularly as a moderator and panelist at venues and events including The Wheeler Centre, the Melbourne Writer’s Festival, the Emerging Writers’ Festival, Women of Letters, the Melbourne Free University, the Future Writer’s Festival, the World Matters Festival, and the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival in Bali, Indonesia.
