Read my science blog - I am a freelance science journalist, with more than a quarter of a century of experience writing and editing for a large number of popular science publications, trade magazines and specialist outlets as well as copywriting for funding organisations, universities, national laboratories and others. For a more complete list of past and present clients, visit my About page. You can keep up to date with my latest science news and views on the blog, but follow me on twitter and Facebook for updates on other sites and magazines.
You might see the occasional music update among the science commentary on this site. I write and record, and perform regularly with a couple of bands as well as a community choir. Some of my songs have had some critical acclaim and radio airtime and many are available from BandCamp, SoundCloud, iTunes, Spotify, Youtube, and other outlets. The Sciencebase music page is here.
When I'm not writing about science or playing music you might catch me out and about with a camera in hand. I snap almost anything that catches my eye, looking for intriguing people, doing intriguing things, beautiful scenes, architecture, birds, animals, patterns, oddities and more besides. You can view my photos on Flickr, 500px, Facebook etc. All the sciencebase photography links are here.
My latest book, Deceived Wisdom, is still available and I am feeling the pressure to put together a followup. You can buy - Deceived Wisdom from the usual outlets or get an ebook version to download. Here's what science writer John Emsley had to say: "At last, a book that blows away many of the urban myths we've come to accept without questioning. Well written and engrossing" and broadcaster Francis Wheen described it as his "dream book".
