In 1976 I became a vegan and since then held leadership positions with some of the world’s foremost animal advocacy organisations in the UK and the USA. Today, I work as an author, independent scholar, and consultant in animal rights.

  • Back to Work!

    September 7, 2021

    Yesterday was the first day back in my office since June 17, when I collapsed unconscious in the street from a faulty heart valve I was born with and didn’t know existed. Open heart surgery and three hospitals stay later, I’m at last getting well enough to return full-time to my vegan, animal rights work.… Read More

BOOK REVIEWS

  • The Face on Your Plate by Jeffrey Masson

    March 14, 2010

    Some books are written by authors whose biography and personality are seemingly absent. I say seemingly because every book written is, of course, infused with the author’s character and experience regardless of their visibility. … Read More

  • On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder

    May 22, 2017

    Having survived the Thatcher/Reagan years in the 1980s, and thought it could not get any worse until the Blair/Bush junior years from the late 1990s to 2000s, we are now in the present Trump era in which the prospect of dictatorship in the US is openly discussed.… Read More

  • Story Craft by Jack Hart

    December 18, 2017

    Of all the books about writing, editing and publishing I’ve read over the years, I cannot think of one that stood out more than just offering a nugget of information here and some insight over there. They were helpful but not memorable. Or even enjoyable to read. Story Craft: The Complete Guide to Writing Narrative Nonfiction by Jack Hart, however, is different and comes highly recommended.… Read More

  • All About Love by bell hooks

    April 29, 2018

    I haven’t read bell hooks in many years. I recall her Feminist Theory: From margin to center helped to inform my understanding of feminism in the 1990s. My interest in reading hooks again was after I heard Philip McKibbin speak about “The Politics of Love” at the Minding Animals conference in Mexico in January 2018. He referred to hooks’ All About Love: New visions in his excellent presentation. I confess to a “quick read” of this book and that this is why this is a “quick review.” Nonetheless, I recognize this book to be an informative, provocative, and empowering read. I will certainly return to it for a more thorough reading as my research progresses into understanding the relationship between being an animal lover and a vegan animal rights advocate.… Read More
