About the Author

Sally Georgina Cronin, the daughter of a Naval officer, was born in Portsmouth where her family still lives. Following a career of over twenty years, at a senior management level, in a number of industries, Georgina opened a diet advisory centre in Ireland. It was then that she wrote her first book, 'Size Matters', which was published in 2003. A self-help book, it details her own weight loss of over 140lbs, and the programme that she designed and adapted for her many clients according to their individual needs.

Sally has spent the last ten years writing and broadcasting information on health and nutrition, as well as publishing a novel and short-story audio CD. 
Her new book 'Just Food for Health' is a common-sense guide to the body and the foods it needs to be healthy.
Sally, and her husband David, divide their time between Portsmouth, Dublin and their home in Madrid.

BIOGRAPHY – Sally Georgina Cronin

In 1996 Sally Cronin was given a death sentence!

In a high-pressure job, as Operations Director for a rapidly growing independent telecommunications operator, Sally weighed over 330 lbs and was suffering from several obesity-related medical problems. Always one to take “the bull by the horns”, she gave up her job and devoted all her time and effort into regaining her health.

Her first book, “Size Matters”, was published in 2003 and records her journey from size–32 to size–16. Her successful outcome was based on a unique weight-control-programme that she designed for herself.

With a first hand knowledge of the problems, and pain, that excess weight can bring – and a proven weight-control-programme – Sally opened a diet-advisory centre, in Ireland. Over the next few years she coached over 1,000 individual clients through the programme, finding solutions for people not only suffering from obesity but also for many with dietary related medical problems.

In 2003, Sally moved to Spain and published her first novel, “Just and Odd Job Girl”. Then, in 2004, in partnership with her husband David, she founded Moyhill Publishing working with authors on the design, formatting and production of their books and covers. Their first book “The Red-tailed Hawk” (in Spanish) won the British Book Design & Production Award for “Best Digital Book” of 2004.

Following a book review of Size Matters, on “Ondacero International, (OCI)” – the English speaking radio in Spain – she was given the opportunity to present a weekly health segment on OCI. In addition to the healthy lifestyle programming, Sally also edited and produced a short story for the channel each week for four years.

In 2005 until Sally launched a new monthly e-magazine, “Just Food for Health”, alongside her website The website contains a wealth of useful information and tips about lifestyle and nutrition, and serves a background for the topical information in the subscription based e-magazine.

Sally was also a columnist for the Spanish magazine “The Marketplace” and a contributor to the magazine “Sitara” which is circulated to the Indian community in Spain. In 2008 she became the columnist for “Front of House Magazine”, based in the UK.

In March 2009 her latest health book was released. “Just Food for Health” is a common-sense guide to the body and the food it needs to be healthy. Sally now divides her time between her home in Madrid and the UK. She works with clients throughout Europe and is working on her next novel.
