Dr C. Edward Pitt

Biography

Dr C. Edward Pitt is a full time GP* and spare-time writer. He lives and works in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. He is way too busy. He has been studying and working in the medical profession since 1992. In that time he has gained the qualifications of MBBS (UQ) and the FRACGP. He spent a number of years in hospital paediatrics before getting sick of shift-work and moving into General Practice. Since attaining his GP Fellowship in 2005, he has gained experience in many and varied areas of medicine including Skin Cancer Medicine, Cosmetic Medicine, Aged Care, Sexual Health and Family Planning, and is a regular question writer and examiner for the Royal Australian College of General Practice.

In the early 2000’s, he was a regular writer for a nationally published Christian magazine, “Alive”, and he published his first book in 2009, “Stress Out”, now in it’s second edition.

He is also a husband, father to two rambunctious small boys, coffee connoisseur, try-hard leg spinner, amateur actor and a terrible dancer. Whatever time he has left, he usually wastes it on Facebook!

(* GP is short for General Practitioner, also known as a Family Physician in some parts of the world)

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
So, I'm not a naturally gifted writer. I write as much for my own catharsis and learning as for any other reason. But I want to help people too, to see people live to their fullest potential. I guess that's one reason I became a doctor. Writing helps me to share my experience to a broader audience, to help as many people as I can. And that makes me happy.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Usually working, or wasting it on Facebook :)
