I am a freelance science journalist, have been for more than 25 years, writing for a wide range of magazines, newspapers and websites. My website started life in 1995, as a blog before there were blogs, where I posted science news, interviews, opinion pieces, it morphed into sciencebase.com in July 1999.
Deceived Wisdom - The "book of the blog"
Deceived Wisdom, published by E&T Books, and available from all good outlets peaked at #1 on the amazon bestseller lists. You can buy it for immediate download for your e-reader from here. An Audible edition narrated by Kris Dyer is also available.
I originally trained in chemistry and after working in the US ended up as an editor at the Royal Society of Chemistry. I have written for many publications including New Scientist, Science, Nature, Popular Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, BioTechniques, American Scientist, MIT Technology Review, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph...and have contributed to several popular science books. I also started, or helped start, early web-based news sites for several organisations in the mid to late 1990s. You can find out more and contact me here.
Music has been a passion since I first banged a toy drum, strummed a mini guitar and wailed my head off as a toddler. Hopefully, my musicality has improved in the intervening four decades, so do check out my acrostic acoustic and eclectic electric songs.
