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, cosmetic allergies and skin sensitivities.

I’ve written journalism for The Guardian, The Irish Times, Reader's Digest and over 100 other publications worldwide, including specialist allergy publications Foods Matter, and the Action Against Allergy newsletter.

I've written 10 books. A co-authored book, IBS: Dietary advice to calm your gut, was released in November 2017, and Living with Methylisothiazolinone Allergy, in January 2019.

I’m a member of the Guild of Health Writers and the Society of Authors.

I co-founded the annual Free From 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, and am closely involved in working with the team on its sibling award, the Free From Food Awards.

I edit Allergy Insight, dedicated to all kinds of allergies and hypersensitivities, and also 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.
