Science is awesome.
Fiction may be my first love, but science is the baby that brings home the bacon. After receiving a Masters in chemistry from York University, I went on to become an analytical chemist, and now have ten years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry under my belt. To learn more about my professional career, take a look at my linkedin page.
I was writing fiction well before I considered writing about science, so thought I’d combine the two (just to make it clear, that doesn’t mean I make up results; it means I decided to write about science).
I blog regularly for the Royal Society of Chemistry’s social site, MyRSC. Combining science with humour is not done often, and has never been done quite like I do it. If you have any interest in science at all, it is well worth a read: blog. My first published non-fiction article was published in Chemistry World, September issue, Science Sells.
This is something I am looking to significantly expand in the near future. To encourage future generations of scientists to don white lab coats, we need to grab their attention. Entertaining, whilst informing, is, and always will be, the most effective way, and that is what I am here to do.
