As a ghostwriter I get a kick out of helping experts, leaders and academics to tell their story. Not everyone can write for a general readership - and nor should they be expected to. But everyone has a story. There are so many people out there with important, world-changing tales to tell, but don't know how to get it onto the page. I help them say what they want to say, with maximum impact and page-turning readability. Recently this has included UN climate leaders and automotive business CEOs (plus some I can't link to below, who prefer their ghosts to remain invisible). I specialise in turning difficult-to-understand information into engaging, flowing copy for a mainstream audience.
- The Royal Society Science Book Prize: Shortlisted
- National Journalist of the Year: Winner. Towers Watson Journalism Awards
My book, Clearing the Air: The Beginning and the End of Air Pollution, was published by Bloomsbury in Spring 2019. This journalistic investigation of air pollution took me around the world, including Delhi, Beijing, Paris and London. Alongside shocking facts and humbling stories, I also found hope and inspiration. Clearing The Air went on to be nominated for the Royal Society Science Book Prize, and I have appeared at numerous literature and science festivals.
As a freelance features writer, my long-form articles have appeared in The Guardian, BBC, Financial Times, Sunday Times, and magazines including The New Scientist, Third Sector and People Management. I typically cover sustainability, the environment, emerging tech and social issues.
I work for a range of clients and sectors, on issues from sustainable technology to workplace wellbeing. As well as books and e-books, this has included white papers, reports, roundtables, case studies and blog articles.
