Understanding Endometriosis (Optima 1989, Little Brown 1993, Vermilion 1996) was well reviewed, went into a second edition and stayed in print for 18 years.

“excellent book… since it is…about how women with endometriosis feel, the doctors who treat them might also learn a thing or two.”     The Lancet

“great value to doctors, as well as their patients… imaginative presentation of the anatomy and physiology … she also explains very well the complications endometriosis may cause.”     New Scientist

Caroline was a co-Founding Trustee of the national charity known as The Endometriosis Society (now Endometriosis UK), volunteering her spare time from 1981-89.

Having worked in survey research at the Open University, Caroline designed and analysed a survey of the experiences of 800 women with endometriosis. She reported her findings at the first World Congress on Endometriosis in 1986 in Clement Ferrand, France, and went on to use the research in her book.

Caroline’s professional postgraduate training is in health education. She worked as a project manager for the National Health Service (NHS) and an Open University  course manager and tutor before returning to writing health features (e.g. for The Independent) and The Menopause, HRT and You (Penguin, 1999).

“Superb guide to the menopause conundrum”                  Dr. Houston, Sunday Business Post

“She’s asked all the questions readers have probably asked, but been fobbed off without answers. … Importantly, it’s easy to read. A highly recommended book.”     Health & Fitness

“I read your whole book – even in the middle of the night – its is SO interesting. I really liked the way it goes from light to heavy, i.e. scientific and then people’s stories.”

“I am truly gobsmacked at how excellent it is.”

“You present all this information in such a clear, up-front manner that it does wonders.”

The Menopause, HRT and You (Penguin, 1999) was the first British book for women to explain the different types of menopause and include stories from women who have had an early menopause or lack hormones for genetic or intersex reasons.
