More About the Author

I wear several hats: I write for teenagers and children - I have had around 90 books published, including award-winners and some best-sellers. And one of my favourite parts of that is doing school events and festivals.

I also write for writers who want to improve their writing and become published. I blog at the industry-acclaimed Help! I Need a Publisher! and have written the books, Write to be Published, as well as the ebooks Write a Great Synopsis and Dear Agent. These books are all regularly recommended by creative writing courses, as well as agents and publishers in the UK, US and elsewhere,

I campaign and speak up for the rights of writers and readers. I've been chair of the Society of Authors in Scotland, created the Fair Reading idea and the complementary Our World Book Night.

I do a lot of public-speaking, in school events, at festivals, for writing groups and conferences.

Last, but very much not least, I tweet - a lot! My ebook, Tweet Right - The Sensible Person's Guide to Twitter, is a well-regarded help to individuals new to Twitter or wondering whether and how to get into it. Follow me on Twitter as @nicolamorgan or see my website at www.nicolamorgan.com

News: I've republished Mondays are Red as an ebook with brand new material. The video trailer is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qz5bQXAGBzs&feature=g-upl

I do have an Amazon store, which used to show all my available books in one place, but Amazon have for some reason removed all the books. I am waiting for them to tell me why. The link is here: http://astore.amazon.co.uk/wwwnicolamorg-21

Product Description

Review

'... confirms Nicola Morgan as a dramatic, thought-provoking, powerful writer for young people. This book more than lives up to the promise of her earlier publications.' (Carousel)

ABOUT FLESHMARKET

This is a tough thriller, a delicate love story and a powerfully evocative historical novel. At its heart is a young man's obsession with the mother he lost under horrendous, bizarre circumstances. Set in Edinburgh at a time in which the city was at the vanguard of medical advance, Morgan reveals the deep moral dilemmas that accompanied meaningful research at the time. Her descriptions of Edinburgh's Old Town, decaying, corrupt and dangerous, are extraordinarily vivid. Lives were cheap, both within and out of the medical faculty. Morgan is a confident, courageous and honest writer. Fleshmarket is a tour de force, from its attention-grabbing prologue onwards.

Outstanding ... a book that deserves attention (BOOKSELLER)

A dramatic and thought-provoking book. Nicola Morgan is a fine writer. (DAVID ALMOND)

Her readers are gripped from the opening pages ... Gripping and well-written, her latest book consolidates Morgan's reputation as an exciting new talent. 4 stars (out of 5). (Books for Keeps)

A compelling and scary read. (The Independent) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
There are not many books I can't put down. But when I was forced away from this page-turner, I felt quite annoyed and even went to bed early to read some more!

The story is not, sadly, an unknown one - a young girl gets sucked into some kind of cult, which ultimately has a terrifying ending (I mean, the title is a big clue!). But the writing is so stylish, not an ounce of prose wasted, that even though you know what's coming, you still can't tear yourself away. And I particularly loved the language of fruit and flowers - they play an integral part in the story (the main character goes to work on a fruit farm) and you can practically taste the nectarines and strawberries, the raspberries and gooseberries - and the trance-inducing passionflower nectar. It's a seductive poison.

There is a twist of a kind towards the end, which I did see coming. However, guessing this twist actually made me want to read on even more, to see how things would pan out; how this person would act when it came to the end. I can't say more than that because it would give the story away!

This is the first book by Nicola Morgan that I have read, and I will definitely be seeking out more of her books - she's a wonderful writer. Highly recommended! (but not for the faint of heart, I should add!)

Format: Paperback
I read this book in the summer holidays.
I really, really enjoyed it. It is so gripping, you find yourself engrossed in the story very easily, I simply could not put it down. I know it is a bit of a cliche but this book is seriously difficult to put down. Every page gives you more clues as the eventual mystery unfolds. You start the book through the eyes of Matilda, a young and naive girl who's childhood was sheltered. I think it is a believeable story as this young, sixteen year old girl gets entranced in by these people on the fruit farm more and more. As I am the same age as her, it was easy for me to believe how she was feeling.

I would recommend this book to late teenagers and adults as it is not for the faint hearted! It is exciting and not the sort of book that you can read with the lights out. This could just be me as I get scared easily but I still think about this film now. It really changed me.

So yes, read it!!

i absolutely loved this book!!! the way nicola morgan expressed matildas naivety and how she yearns to feel belonging in a sinister cult was magnificent. i have read other books of the same author and each are so individual yet each are recognizably pieces of nicola morgan's excellent work.
