About The Author
Leigh Matthews is an experienced health and wellness writer, an English and Philosophy graduate of York University and a graduate in Nutritional Therapy. Focusing predominantly on nutrition and preventative medicine, Leigh has several years experience writing about natural health supplements, nutrition, spinal health, surgical interventions, infectious disease, vegan and vegetarian nutrition, skin conditions and a vast number of disparate health topics.
In addition to writing for nutritional supplement companies, oncoplasty surgeons, naturopathic clinics, personal trainers and some corporate clients, Leigh also works as content manager for the Healthy Body Network, is the founder of Naturally Healthy People and maintains her own website on veganism. With well honed skills in research, SEO, copywriting, and the use of social media Leigh breaks down complex medical journal articles into pithy copy that informs and entertains.
Born in the UK, Leigh now lives in Canada. Her first novel, The Old Arbutus Tree was published in 2013, and her second, Don’t Bang the Barista!, was published in 2014. Moving ever closer to the dream of self-sufficiency somewhere in the wilds, chances are she’ll know what to grow to treat an aching back, an itchy skin rash or a stuffy nose.
The first in a series of books exploring the connections between diet and skin health, Eat to Beat Acne, is available for pre-order now and will be published in March 2015.
