Spotlight on Author 2 -Helen Foster
January 24 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Guild includes many authors as well as journalists and many who are both! We want to offer our members the chance to hear directly from them and from other leading book writers with a health specialism. Our second Zoom book club event on January 24 will be an interview with Guild member Helen Foster, and an excerpt reading from her latest book The Macro Method: The science-backed approach to lasting weight loss written with Angela Dowden which was published by Aster, moderated by Committee member Jacqui Thornton.
Helen is a freelance health journalist, a freelance travel journalist, author of numerous health and lifestyle books, creator of three blogs – one in health, two in a travel and a content creator for a number of websites. She trained in the UK but now works out of Sydney in Australia, contributing to titles in both countries. Since going freelance in 1999 she have written for virtually every newspaper and women’s magazine in the UK and numerous international titles – most prominently those in Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East. She is also a prolific author with 17 health, diet and lifestyle books published by major publishers including Quit Alcohol for a Month, The High Fat Diet and the bestselling Easy GI Diet. She has also ghost-written titles for celebrities and high profile experts.
This latest book was written by authors based in Sydney and LA, for a UK publisher – quite the international affair!
We intend to hold these every quarter, so if you have recently published a health book and want to take part, please let us know.
