About me

I have been writing poetry and stories since I was a child, and a love of reading was instilled in me from an early age. I am passionate about writing, and hope you enjoy the books I have written. Whilst most of you sleep soundly in your beds, like many Parkinson’s patients, insomnia dictates, so during those hours that sleep eludes me, the house is tranquil and quiet, an atmosphere perfect to immerse myself in writing. My life has been a series of strange events, which have without doubt contributed to my creativity. To publish anything is to bear one’s soul to the world. It is to stand naked and let everyone see who you really are. I have poured my heart and soul out on paper and I hope to share this journey, immersing you in a story, capturing your attention and firing the imagination. Through my writing and public speaking I hope to bring greater awareness to the general public about living with chronic disease.

Going Out

My husband and I went last night to a wonderful wedding. I love weddings, and usually would stay until the very end. Life is hard enough with daily struggles, coping with chronic disease, and even if you look in the newspapers, unfortunately there is little positive or uplifting news to read. Going to a wedding, whether family or friends, watching a young couple getting married, is a joyous occasion. An opportunity and affirmation to feel  that the future holds hope. Sadly we could not stay as long as we would have liked, as I tire very easily and the loud music and large number of people was very hard for me. This is one of the drawbacks of Parkinson's disease!
