I have extensive experience of interviewing various writers from historians to authors of young adult fiction. My speciality is science fiction and fantasy. I have conducted interviews of all sizes for the Hay Festival of Literature and the Arts, Liverpool Arab Arts Festival (LAAF), Writing on the Wall (as part of the International Festival of Business), and Waterstones. My interviews are highly praised by audiences, organisers, publishers, and authors.

I am currently based in London and available to conduct interviews for events, festivals, and conventions. If you'd like to discuss booking me to conduct an interview please email me: drgrmorgan@gmail.com
