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, and skin sensitivities.

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 over 100 other publications worldwide. A new co-authored book, IBS: Dietary advice to calm your gut, was released in November 2017.

I’m a member of the National Union of Journalists, the Guild of Health Writers and the Society of Authors.

I'm a columnist for Network Health Digest magazine, and a regular contributor to allergy publications.

I co-founded and co-ordinate the annual FreeFrom Skincare Awards, aimed at recognising cosmetics 'free from' some of the ingredients consumers need or want to avoid, such as allergens, fragrances or petrochemical derivatives.

I edit the website Allergy Insight, dedicated to all allergies, intolerances and sensitivities, and also the website Methylisothiazolinone Free, aimed at those with allergy to this common preservative.

I also tutor, and offer advice on writing for publication, as well as a critique and editing service to writers of non-fiction.
