I’m a writer and broadcaster, mostly on the history of science and medicine, and a poet. My books – translated into eight languages so far – include international bestseller The Sick Rose, Medical London, a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week, and the award-winning poetry collection Seahouses. My essays have appeared in many places, from the London Review of Books to the Lancet, and I run a widely-praised series of guided walks around the history of science, medicine, health, and disease in London.

My latest book, Wherever We Are When We Come To The End, is out now with Valley Press. You can order copies from Valley Press or Amazon, and an Audible audiobook from Amazon or Audible.
