Penny Stanway is a writer, doctor, artist and cook.
She worked as a doctor in general practice, then in child health. After having her first baby, she realized the usual advice to breastfeed every 4 hours for 10 minutes a side didn't work for her. Research revealed that this advice was based on schedules for bottle-feeding, took no account of how a woman's body works, and meant most women couldn't breastfeed successfully. Her passion to share and explain well-founded, up-to-date information led to her first book, 'Breast is Best' (US - 'The Breastfeeding Bible'). This much-loved guide aims to enable women to breastfeed for as long as they want and is now in its 6th edition
Penny's 27 subsequent books, many on women's health, baby-care and child health, have continued to empower others.
Her 8 most recent books are about 'miracle foods' such as garlic, olive oil, spices and teas. They include 'The Miracle of Honey'.
Penny has also written:
* 'Free Your Inner Artist', on encouraging creativity - and including an account of her feelings and other responses to 3 years of art classes.
* 'Christmas - a Cook's Tour', with Ingeborg Relph, about Christmas food around the world.
