I am a writer, with over 25 years’ experience in food, science and technology writing. I also write fiction, and have published two novels.

In 2017 I published my first non-fiction book about the pioneering Australian naturopath Dorothea Snook, and her infamous cancer diet. This was the culmination of three years of research in America and Australia, as I uncovered remarkable information about the pedigree of Mrs Snook’s diets, which can be traced back to the founding figures of the naturopathy movement and the European nature cure tradition.

I work in agricultural and food science communications, and have an interest in gut nutrition, energy systems and artificial intelligence.

As a lover of science, writing a book about a naturopath was something I never imagined myself doing. But 35 years after my mother first recommended Mrs Snook’s gut-cleanse diet to me, I finally tried it. The experience converted me to the health benefits of a whole-food, plant-based diet and I began researching the lives of Dorothea Snook and her mentor Alice Caporn, who were promoting this diet nearly a century ago. I was inspired by the way these feisty foot-soldiers for the nature cure revolution stood firm against the ridicule and censure they experienced for their dietary and health beliefs.

Working with Mrs Snook’s family, I am delighted to have shed new light on the circumstances of the dubious court case that led to Mrs Snook’s downfall and to make her vintage nature cure diets available to a new generation.
