Suzi Grant spent her career years in the fast lane, living and working hard as a TV journalist in eighties London.

Retraining as a Nutritionist, she made a promise to herself to make the most of her golden years, and never again feel the threat of invisibility. Now with three books under her belt, Suzi has created the popular blog Alternative Ageing – a healthy blend of nutrition, style, humour, and adventure.
