Writing online since 1995 ✍️

Current project: Scientific Connective—shaping the future of scientific exchange. Recent: UX copy for the new OMRON connect app and a book for Nestlé: The Science of Growing Up Happy.

As a freelance journalist, I’ve written for many newspapers, magazines, websites, radio + TV over the last 25 years. I have published 12 books on health and wellness topics.

Now deep-diving into the badass world of UX writing + content design🕵🏻‍♀️

To create more diversity in media (too white, too middle class) and flexible work for all, I’m an RSA Fellow and an officer at NUJ London Freelance branch and Freelance Industrial Council.  

I’m excited to be on board at Plumia, the world’s first internet country, helping build a borderless world of work. Join the movement here.

Happily remote for 15 years and now exploring how to combine it with my love of travel—slowmading—with a teen in tow! I hate flying so trains and walking it is.

Walking, cycling and running around the glorious South Downs National Park… where you’ll find me when I’m not in my studio 😎
