I completed my undergraduate degree and PhD at the University of Cambridge. I moved to the University of Dundee in 1996 from the University of Warwick. I held a Personal Chair in Cognitive Psychology and am currently a professor of psychology at the University of Dundee. For many years I was head of department and then dean, but am now a full-time writer and science journalist. I am a Fellow of the British Psychological Society and a Chartered Psychologist. My main research interests are in normal and pathological speech production, the effects of ageing on cognition, psychology and the weather, consciousness, and the science of self-improvement. I am author of a number of books on the psychology of language. You can find out more about works in development at my website.
I am also author of a genre-defying novel, Fit for a King.
I live in the countryside outside Dundee with a large number of tame blackbirds who have learnt to sit on my windowsill and tap the glass to attract my attention until I feed them sultanas (they prefer organic).
You can read my blog about mental illness, writing, psychology, consciousness raising, and being famous at https://whatisthemeaningofmylife.com. I'm keen on music and would jump at the chance to present Breakfast on Radio 3.
I welcome feedback from readers, both positive and negative, and would love suggestions on how to make my work better. Please comment on the books on Amazon, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd like to thank anyone who has ever bought any of my books; I hope you enjoyed reading them nearly as much as I've enjoyed writing them.
