Happy Birthday, Nicola Morgan, born 11 November 1961.
- Punctuation is a fabulous tool for controlling your reader – you even get to control where they breathe. That’s what I call power!
- The lives and deaths of characters in stories and poems, however tragic, help us to learn about the world and – if we are brave enough – to change it.
- How impossibly untangleable is the tangle of what ifs.
- It is not what we do that is important. It is why we do it.
- Whoever I’m writing or talking for, I love it and I do it because I care and because I understand. And because I want things to be better.
- When I write, I use an engaging, warm voice that works for people of all ages. You’ll never find me patronising or confusing. When I talk, you’ll find the same.
