Wendy Moore Book and Novel

Wendy Moore - Author


Wendy Moore began her first newspaper job at the age of nineteen. Initially working as a crime reporter, tracking stories such as the Dennis Nielsen murders, she was switched to reporting health issues.

Having always been interested in history, Wendy began researching the history of medicine several years ago. In 1999 she completed the Diploma in the History of Medicine of the Society of Apothecaries (DHMSA) and won the Maccabean prize for the best dissertation that year. Soon afterwards she decided to write a biography of John Hunter, the 18th-century surgeon who launched a revolution in medicine. The book, The Knife Man: The Extraordinary Life and Times of John Hunter, Father of Modern Surgery, won the Medical Journalists' Association Consumer Book Award in 2005 and was short-listed for the biennial Marsh Biography Award.

She has appeared on television: Medical Mavericks and Ian Rankin investigates: The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

Wendy lives in London with her husband Peter and her two children, Sam and Susannah.
