I’m a UK-based freelance writer, editor, author and writing tutor who has been writing professionally since 1996.
My specialisms are food allergy and intolerance, coeliac disease, gut health, free from food, IBS and digestive disorders – but I also write on skin / cosmetic allergies.
I’ve written several books – my latest being Coeliac Disease: what you need to know – and journalism for The Daily Mail, The Guardian, The Irish Times, Reader's Digest and other publications. A new co-authored book, Eating Well for IBS, will be released in 2017.
I’m a member of the National Union of Journalists, the Guild of Health Writers and the Society of Authors.
I co-founded the FreeFrom Skincare Awards, and work on both this and it 'sibling' awards, the FreeFrom Food Awards, and the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards, in various roles.
I edit the site Methylisothiazolinone Free, aimed at those with allergy to this common preservative.
I also tutor and offer advice on writing for publication.
