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

Format: Paperback
This book has been extremely useful to me - it's full of great advice for anyone who is leaving home (and even those who have already left home!) and with personal experiences from Nicola Morgan herself, this book has been very well written and is easy to follow. I am soon to leave home for the first time in a few weeks so this has been THE book for me! It really is a survival guide!

This book is a must for anyone thinking of or actually leaving home. It has great info on anything from washing powder to how to buy home insurance. It's brilliantly useful especially if you are a bit nervous about setting out on your own and great to refer to when you need a bit of help and don't want to go running back to your parents!

I only flicked through this book as it is a gift for my daughter but it is a great starting point for dealing with many of life's little disasters and the challenges of every day life.
