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.

Ginger cake

Do dogs like ginger cake? The unequivocal answer to this is, "YES"! One afternoon I had spent much time and energy, not to mention ingredients, making a ginger cake. Taking it out of the oven (trying not to burn myself, having done so on three previous occasions), looking at the perfectly risen appetizing cake, my feelings of satisfaction were abruptly cut short. I promptly dropped the whole thing which broke into several pieces. I was too horrified for words, but our darling dog, who is under the illusion that one of her roles in life is to perform as a vacuum cleaner on four furry legs, came immediately to the rescue. The cake that had broken into many pieces and lay strewn around, was enthusiastically devoured at speed. Hence "Yes" dogs like ginger cake, especially freshly baked and still warm! Due to Parkinson's I drop things all the time, and have broken many drinking glasses at home, so we now have an odd assortment left and when having guests over, I can never find enough matching glasses to put on the table. So should you happen to invite me to dinner, please don't get out your best crystal !
