I am a writer and academic. My novel, "The Inheritance Powder" has been published by RedDoor Publishing on 8th October 2015. Set mainly in Bangladesh, it is based on a real life tragedy - the slow poisoning of millions of people by arsenic in their drinking water thanks to a well-meant but disastrous international aid intervention. it is part love story and part suspense and views the tragedy through two very different people's lives. It draws on my personal and professional experience of working in international development.
