Books, courses, tips and tales from many years of writing and training

The first purpose of this website is to share some of the many lessons that I learnt over a long career as writer and trainer of writers. The second is unashamedly to plug my books, including a memoir (see panel, right) and my book on writing scientific papers (also see right), now in its fourth edition.


There should be plenty on this website to entertain you, and to help you on your writing journeys.


You will find tips on writing journal articles, memoirs, personal statements and eulogies. There are details of the courses I developed and the books I wrote. I also explain such useful concepts as the 'pub 'test' and 'putting on the posh overcoat'.
