Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. My name is Michelle Morgan and I am an author, based in the UK. I have worked as a full-time writer for several years now, and you can see my list of credentials here:
1995: 'Marilyn's Addresses,' (Smith Gryphon). A guidebook related to Marilyn Monroe locations around the world. It has now become a much sought-after collectors' item.
2007: ‘Marilyn Monroe: Private and Undisclosed,’ (Constable and Robinson). This book received a great deal of publicity including eight pages plus the cover in The Sunday Times magazine. It was also published in the USA by Carroll and Graf.
2012: ‘Marilyn Monroe: Private and Undisclosed Revised Edition.’ This book reached number 16 in the WH Smith chart, and since then has been published in the USA, Russia, Poland and Bulgaria. To publicise the book, I gave interviews to many newspapers, magazines and radio stations, and appeared on The Alan Titchmarsh show on ITV. I was also invited to give talks at the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria & Albert museum. The talk at the NPG was so popular that they had to turn people away at the door, as there was no room left in the theatre.
2013: ‘The Mammoth Book of Hollywood Scandals.’ (Constable and Robinson). This book was also published by Running Press in the USA.
2013: ‘Wife Five’ (a play written with Steve Hayes). This book was published in the USA by BearManor Media.
2015: ‘The Mammoth Book of Madonna.’ This book will be published in April by Constable and Robinson/Little, Brown in the UK and Running Press in the USA.
2015: ‘Before Marilyn,’ (co-authored with Astrid Franse) will be released in July by The History Press. There are also plans to sell the rights around the world.
2015: ‘The Ice Cream Blonde’ – a biography about 1930’s film star Thelma Todd. This book will come out in October, published by Chicago Review Press.
2007-2014: For seven years I wrote a weekly column for my local newspaper, detailing my life as a wife, mother, daughter, and friend. I have also written for many magazines, and interviewed celebrities such as Olivia Newton John.
Over the years, many people have asked me how to become a published writer; how to be motivated and release creativity. In order to help as many people as I can, I have decided to offer my knowledge and help in a series of online and offline workshops, designed to inspire, motivate and help fellow creative people of all ages.
