Author Hazel McHaffie began her professional life as a nurse and midwife.

She gained a PhD in Social Science in 1988 and spent the next two decades researching issues relating to the ethics of what is done in modern medicine. As Deputy Director of Research in the Institute of Medical Ethics she carried out her most challenging work, interviewing 109 parents whose babies died following discussion about withdrawing or withholding treatment. She was awarded the 2002 BMA Medical Book of the Year for
Crucial Decisions at the Beginning of Life.

A few years ago she metamorphosed into a novelist. In 2008 Right to Die was shortlisted for the BMA Popular Medicine prize. She is the author of eleven published novels.
