book covers


I have authored or co-authored more than thirty books for international ELT publishers and other major organisations, and have been involved as a writer, editor, trainer and consultant on numerous other ELT materials development projects. I have extensive experience of developing online and digital learning materials, and I also have design and illustration skills which on some occasions are useful in my work as an ELT writer.

I’m British, and became an EFL teacher in the late 1980s. I taught in several countries in Europe, later becoming a DoS and teacher trainer. I also began contributing to ELT/ESL publications, and since around 2005 have worked on major projects for well-known organisations. I am a committee member of MATSDA, the ELT/ESL Materials Development Association.
