I am a full-time freelance writer and biographer with special interests in life stories, music, culture and travel, nutrition and health. In a former twenty-five year career in health care, I was the author of several clinical papers published in peer-reviewed and internationally recognised medical journals. For even longer, there’s been a passion for music. Two completely different worlds perhaps, but research-based writing proved an invaluable transferable skill when applied to my interest in documenting recording artist and soul music history.
I now write on a wide range of societal and cultural themes, and welcome enquiries for private commissions. Biographical services are also provided through Sheridan Hill / Real Life Stories LLC (North Carolina, USA), and as a senior writer for Story Terrace (London, UK; featured on the BBC television programme Dragons’ Den).
When I’m not immersed in writing, you’ll find me enjoying the surrounding Yorkshire Dales countryside and exploring the world further afield, listening to soul music—and running my indie book store, A Nickel And A Nail.
