She has since published three novels: NATURAL FLIGHTS OF THE HUMAN MIND, THE LANGUAGE OF OTHERS and THE MAN WHO DISAPPEARED. Born in Exeter, she now lives in Birmingham where she works as a music teacher, and has two grown-up children.


Praise for THE MAN WHO DISAPPEARED:'A wise, intelligent and surprising novel, in which - as in life - nothing is simple' - Kate Saunders, The TimesA highly achieved, engrossing read... Superbly imagined, it reads like documentary truth. - Tom Adair, ScotsmanPraise for THE LANGUAGE OF OTHERS:'Not only very readable, but very moving; a funny, and occasionally sad, account of what it feels like to be outside the norm' - The TimesSubtle and absorbing . . . Morrall has a talent for making pitiable characters triumphantly sympathetic - Guardian
