Nicola Moriarty

Nicola Moriarty

Nicola Moriarty is a best-selling, Sydney-based novelist, copywriter and mum to two small (but remarkably strong willed) daughters. In between various career changes, becoming a mum and completing her BA, she began to write. Now, she can't seem to stop. Nicola’s books have sold more than a quarter of a million copies worldwide. Her published works include the novels Free-Falling, Paper Chains, The Fifth Letter, Those Other Women, The Ex (Aust), The Ex-Girlfriend (UK) and You Need to Know; along with the novella Captivation and contributions to two UK anthologies. Nicola has been awarded the Fred Rush Convocation prize from Macquarie University, along with 'Best Australian Debut' from Chicklit Club. She has been published in Australia, The United States and The United Kingdom and her books have been translated into German, Dutch and Hungarian. The Fifth Letter was a Top Ten Bestseller in Australia with Australian Women's Weekly calling it 'a pacey, circle-of-friends thriller'; while the UK's Sun on Sunday said, 'With secrets and intrigue, this is a compulsive read.' It was The Librarian's Choice top pick and was featured in Popsugar's Best Books for Fireside Reading plus their Favourite Books for the Year. On Those Other Women, Marian Keyes said 'I devoured it, loved it and totally escaped into it', while Publishers Weekly called it a 'darkly droll page-turner.' The Ex-Girlfriend was called 'fresh, atmospheric, feminist' by Gillian McAllister and 'An extremely twisty tale of obsession and revenge' by Heat. You Need to Know was another Top Ten Bestseller in Australia. The Sydney Morning Herald said the following about the bestselling domestic thriller: "Moriarty has a gift for domestic drama, cracking pace, and skilful narrative timing." She is also very excited to share the news that both The Fifth Letter and The Ex-Girlfriend have been optioned for film and television! Nicola has four older sisters and one older brother and she lives in constant fear of being directly compared to her two wildly successful and extraordinarily talented author sisters, Liane Moriarty and Jaclyn Moriarty. Unless of course, the comparison is something kind, perhaps along the lines of, "Liane, Jaci and Nicola are all wonderful writers. I love all of their books equally." Other things of note are Nicola's lack of fine motor skills, demonstrated by her inability to thread keys onto key-rings, tie balloons, braid hair and apply eyeliner. If you have taken the time to read this far, she would very much like to send you a Freddo Frog to show her appreciation. But she probably won't follow through, because she'll most likely eat all the Freddo Frogs before she gets the chance to post them. Sorry, she does mean well. Nicola's next book is due out in 2022.
