I then started writing popular science, publishing three books, The Skeptic's Guide to the Paranormal, Crocodile: evolution's greatest survivor and Spiders: learning to love them. My new book is The Memory Code. Due to the enormity of the claims I am making in that book, I did a PhD and academic book on the way. Knowledge and Power in Prehistoric Societies was published by Cambridge University Press in 2015.

The Memory Code explains how indigenous cultures manage to memorise vast amounts of practical information and how understanding thei

Lynne Kelly I don't permit myself writer's block. I write every day. If the words won't come, I do research. That is one of the advantages of writing non-fiction!

Please let me know if you need any more information.

Thank you again,

“Some believers accuse skeptics of having nothing left but a dull, cold, scientific world. I am left with only art, music, literature, theatre, the magnificence of nature, mathematics, the human spirit, sex, the cosmos, friendship, history, science, imagination, dreams, oceans, mountains, love, and the wonder of birth. That’ll do for me.”
