I love hearing from readers, editors, fellow writers, scientists and anyone with a good story tip. My contact information is below.

If you work in public relations, however, please read the information below before writing to me.

I receive an overwhelming amount of unsolicited email from PR people. Unfortunately, the vast majority of it is not useful and wastes my time.

If you are considering emailing me, please consider the following requests:

  • Do not put me on any email lists. Send individualized emails only.
  • Read my website and some of my published work.
  • Do not send me information about products or services, or anything in the biomedical or health fields. I don’t cover these areas.
  • If, after reading the above, you believe that you have a well-targeted story lead for me, I’m happy to receive an email from you. I read all my emails, but don’t be surprised if I don’t respond. A followup email is not necessary.
