I'm the author of WOOL, a top 5 science fiction book on Amazon. I also wrote the Molly Fyde saga, a tale of a teenager from the 25th century who is repeatedly told that girls can't do certain things -- and then does them anyway.

A theme in my books is the celebration of overcoming odds and of not allowing the cruelty of the universe to change who you are in the process. Most of them are classified as science fiction, since they often take place in the future, but if you love great stories and memorable characters, you'll dig what you find here. I promise.

As a little girl, I used to drag my grandmother from cemetery to cemetery so that I could hunt ghosts. Some might say I was obsessed with death from an early age, but I’d like to think I was simply fascinated with the past, and with the people who lived there. Thus began a lifelong obsession with history.

I received a doctorate in the history of science, medicine and technology from the University of Oxford. In 2010, I was granted a postdoctoral research fellowship by the Wellcome Trust. I am the author and creator of the popular website The Chirurgeon’s Apprentice, which has received over 2 million hits.

My debut book The Butchering Art follows the surgeon Joseph Lister on his quest to transform the brutal and bloody world of Victorian surgery. It will be published worldwide on October 17th.
