Author talk video at Berkelouw Book Barn

Michelle Morgan - Tuesday, March 20, 2018

I recently had the privilege of taking part in the Author Talks video project of the Tom Keneally Centre and Sydney Mechanics School of Arts Library. While enjoying the peaceful ambience at Berkelouw Book Barn Bookshop & Café, I chatted about my novels for a five minute video that is now available on YouTube:


SMSA short videos for more than 50 Australian authors can now be viewed on YouTube.

Many thanks to the SMSA Library and the Tom Keneally Centre for this wonderful opportunity!

It's exciting to discover new reviews of Flying through Clouds. Here are some quotes from recent reviews:

“Flying through Clouds is a compelling mix of humour and drama, with a resilient and likeable protagonist. This book is full of many interesting writing prompts and would be an asset for wide reading. It could be a useful text for cross- curricular study too.”  (mETAphor, Issue 1, 2018)

“This story is so well written and easy to follow, I would recommend this to fans of YA and is suitable for readers 12 years and up… A book that brought me happy tears, this is one of my 2017 favourites.”  (Read3r’z Re-Vu, 1 November 2017)

“Michelle Morgan creates realistic scenes, which gives her readers a window into the 1930s, where tuberculosis was rampant, planes had propellers and a few hours in the air might allow you to get your pilot license.”  (Kids’ Book Review, 27 August 2017)
