After completing a DPhil in geology at Oxford University, Nina Morgan worked for seven years as an exploration geologist, before turning to science writing and editing in 1986. She has worked as freelance science writer ever since 'specialising in generalising', that is writing about all branches of science and technology for general audiences. She now concentrates on science outreach projects and articles, using geology, history and social history to draw in people who believe that science is 'too hard' or 'too difficult' for them to understand. She is co-author with Philip Powell of the book, The Geology of Oxford Gravestones, and some of her favourite geological stamping grounds now include cemeteries and city streets where geology is on show in walls and kerbs for all to see.
