Welcome to my website. Thanks for taking a look.
Here you will find the latest information about my career and my writing. Please click on the tabs above for more information.
Though I don’t normally write fiction, I contributed a short story to a collection called More Than Meets The Eye, a collaboration between 32 doctors who are also writers, who write under the pen name Doctor Inkwell. The theme is 32 short stories, each set in a single capsule of the London Eye, and happening at the same time. The collection is only available for your Kindle device. Paper copies will not be produced! All proceeds will go to the charity Sightsavers. Why not take a look?
The first reviews of my book appeared earlier this year, in Anaesthesia, the Bulletin of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and the British Journal of Anaesthesia. The reviews have all been very favourable. My book, Anaesthesia: A Very Short Introduction was published in 2012. For a sample chapter, click here.
The book was also highlighted on the official Very Short Introductions Facebook page. Oxford University Press filmed a series of short interviews with me. The three interviews can be seen on its webpage The Truth About Anaesthesia, or on YouTube.
My cousin Dennis O’Donnell published his first book, The Locked Ward, a memoir of his seven-year career as a psychiatric orderly, last year. The reviews have been very favourable. You can read an extract, or browse Dennis’ hilarious blog, here.
