Deborah Moggach

(1948-), Author

Sitter in 2 portraits
Born in the Lake District, Moggach worked in publishing following her graduation from Bristol University in 1971. She began to write when she moved to Karachi, Pakistan in the 1970s, recalling 'that distance, the jolting out of your zone can be very refreshing.' Her debut novel You Must be Sisters was published in 1978, and was followed by novels including Tulip Fever (2000), These Foolish Things, later made into the film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011) and Heartbreak Hotel (2013). She has also adapted several books for the screen including Pride & Prejudice (2005). Moggach is a patron of Dignity in Dying and campaigns for a change in the law on assisted suicide.
