Hello. I'm Catherine Price, science journalist and author of How to Break Up With Your Phone I'm happy you're reading this, even if you are looking at the mobile-friendly version on your phone while standing in line for coffee.

My writing has been featured in publications including The Best American Science Writing, The New York Times, Popular Science, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Salon, Slate, and O, the Oprah Magazine, among others. (See list on left—or check out clips at my main site.)

In addition to helping people change their relationships with their phones, I write frequently about food, science, nutrition, hormones, and Type 1 diabetes, with which I was diagnosed  when I was 22 years old.  I grew up in New York City and have a BA from Yale University and a Master's in Journalism from UC Berkeley.

My other previous books include Vitamania: How Vitamins Revolutionized the Way We Think About Food (Penguin Press, 2015), a parody travel guide called 101 Places Not to See Before You Die (HarperPaperbacks, 2010), The Big Sur Bakery Cookbook (HarperCollins, 2009), and Mindfulness: A Journal (Clarkson Potter, 2016).

I’m a recipient of a Middlebury Fellowship in Environmental Reporting, a two-time Société de Chimie Industrielle fellow at the Chemical Heritage Foundation, an ASME nominee, a 2013 resident at the Mesa Refuge, a fellow in both the Food and Medical Evidence Boot Camps at the Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT, and winner of the Gobind Behari Lal prize for science writing.

I live in Philadelphia and I hate social media, so if you'd like to get in touch—including to discuss possible speaking or workshop events (or just to share your own phone breakup story)—please use the contact form on this site.
