Author and freelance writer, Executive Director for The Young ME Sufferers Trust in a voluntary capacity. A former Head Teacher and member of the Chief Medical Officer's Working Group on CFS/ME, I suffered with severe ME from a virus related to poliomyelitis. I am co-author of the largest study of ME ever undertaken (333,000 school roll) which revealed that ME is the biggest cause of long term sickness absence from school (Journal of CFS, 1997). Many media appearances, TV and radio interviews welcome. Features on ME at www.tymestrust.org/tymespublications.htm may be quoted with suitable acknowledgement. Personal quotes provided for articles relevant to ME/CFS.
