I’ve been a health journalist for twenty years and written for most of the national newspapers and a variety of magazines. Before that I edited a massive tome called Chronicle of the World and before that I was co-editor of Time Out in the mid-1980′s.
In recent years I written mainly for the Daily Mail. I’ve also contributed regularly to Reader’s Digest and occasionally to the Times Literary Supplement.
I’m married, have five children and live in London. I’m pretty healthy, swim regularly and find my work endlessly fascinating.
