Literary Birthday – 11 November – Nicola Morgan

Happy Birthday, Nicola Morgan, born 11 November 1961.


  1. Punctuation is a fabulous tool for controlling your reader – you even get to control where they breathe. That’s what I call power!
  2. 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.
  3. How impossibly untangleable is the tangle of what ifs.
  4. It is not what we do that is important. It is why we do it.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
