Non-fiction

Below are some of the non-fiction articles I’ve written. These were largely written for work or around my work-related interests, so you’ll find plenty of NHS and HR-related content, and right at the bottom, some of my contributions to academic books and journals. The pieces are in reverse chronological order.
