In 2016, I decided to use my master's degree in clinical research, and my experience of writing medical and scientific materials, for something good. I quit my corporate job in medical communications (producing materials that solely benefited pharmaceutical companies) and started writing to help people. It was immensely scary at first, but by sticking with my personal brand of evidence-based, scientific research, translated into "human" language, my whole world changed. I became location independent and discovered a new, immensely rewarding world of giving other people information that could potentially really make a difference in their lives. My first book, "Loss of a Parent," focused on helping others to grieve for their parents. I lost my father in 2007 and found the grieving process difficult. Eventually I read a book on the subject, which helped immensely. I realized that despite grief for a parent being almost universally experienced by most adults at some point, little had been written on the subject. This was the catalyst for my personal change, and it took years for me to heed the call. I'm so glad I did! "How to Handle a Narcissist," uses a similar blend of thoroughly researched, cutting-edge theory, and combines this with a range of case studies to provide an informed and objective approach to narcissism, with a human touch. I worked hard to avoid tapping into the usual stigma and negative rhetoric around narcissists, to provide the reader with greater insight and understanding, without bolstering their anger or pain. As well as my master's degree in clinical research I have a bachelor's degree in physics with astrophysics. Half of my childhood was spent in the Bahamas before I returned to England, studied and traveled the world. After several years spent working in South Korea, Spain, and the Netherlands, I returned to London where I worked for five years serving pharmaceutical companies in healthcare communications agencies. Having become location independent, I now spend much of my time in Italy and finally love my life again- something I whole-heartedly believe everyone deserves to do.
