Hi there,

I love writing, it’s a real passion of mine.  I’ve had a novel published and two academic books, eighteen academic book chapters and lots of academic journal articles, as my career was (and still is part-time) at the University of Manchester.  Now, I’ve set up my business in Yoga and Wellness, it seems natural to continue to write articles, but this time with an emphasis on yoga, wellness and lifestyle. 

I was fortunate enough to have my first article on yoga published by OM Yoga and Lifestyle magazine in January 2023.  See link below.  I’ve also included a link to my novel as it was written about living in India for six months, so it seemed fitting to include it.  It’s out of print now (it was a two year publishing contract), but there are still copies come up for sale on Amazon quite regularly.  I keep thinking I’ll update the book a little and see if I can get another publishing deal for a second edition…watch this space!
