Writing is how I launched my career and I still love it. I write about relationships for a variety of print and online media, and have also written 22 books published in 33 countries and 24 languages.
My newest book is How to Choose a Partner, developed from the course I co-wrote for the global self-development organisation The School of Life. It majors on knowledge, insights and practical advice about partner choice based not only on psychological research but also on the philosophical, social and cultural context of relationships today.
Here are some of my backlist highlights.
– Stop Arguing, Start Talking, a book written with couples counselling organisation Relate, and the best-selling title on the Relate list
– Staying Together, written with Relate and described by The Times as “the only relationship book you’ll ever need”
– The New Joy of Sex, an expanded, fully revised and newly illustrated version of the classic Alex Comfort book
– Positive Thinking, published in 16 countries and 14 languages
– I am sex and relationships agony aunt for Fabulous Magazine, Britain’s biggest-read Sunday supplement.
– In 2005 my work was shortlisted for the Family Planning Association’s annual Award for journalistic excellence. Since then I have also judged the Award, and for the past three years have also been a judge for the FPA’s Sexual Health Awards.
– In the past I have had regular columns for Good Housekeeping, Top Sante, FHM and the Daily Mail and I have over the years contributed to every British and many worldwide newspapers and magazines. From 2003-2015 I wrote a regular Consumer Correspondent column for the Journal of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care.
HP, wife and mother: Eleven years ago I kept an article you wrote… I often read it when we are at a low ebb and we have now just celebrated our 25th anniversary.
ET, couples counsellor: I browsed through your book (Joy of Sex) last night and know already that it is going to be by my side at all times.
CM, via email: Your writing is so useful in explaining everything one needs to know about relationships… after reading (your book) my husband and I now feel we can’t get enough of each other.
