I have just released the third of a series of books of advice aimed at aspiring wordsmiths looking to break into writing articles and features for magazines, newspapers and web. They are called 50 Mistakes Beginner Writers Make, 50 More Mistakes Beginner Writers Make, and the latest, released in November 2019, is 50 Mistakes Writers Make.

My latest book, Living with Methylisothiazolinone Allergy, was released in November 2018 as an ebook and in January 2019 as a paperback.

My book, IBS: dietary advice to calm your gut, co-authored with dietitian Julie Thompson, was released in November 2017.

A revised edition of my book, Coeliac Disease: what you need to know, was released in Spring 2015. It was originally first shortlisted for a Guild of Health Writers 'Health Book of the Year' Award in 2012. An Italian edition was released in May 2016. A newly revised edition will be published in June 2020. 

My website,, was launched in January 2016. It is aimed at those with allergy to methylisothiazolinone (MI) — a preservative commonly found in cosmetics and household cleaning products, especially, but also paints, papers and other products.
