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.

Always be Prepared

Going on holiday I've found planning ahead military style is highly advisable. I always make sure I have enough medications to see me through the days we'll be away, and a little extra to cover any unforeseen delays returning home. I never put my medications in the suitcase just in case luggage goes astray, so always keep a bag containing all pills in my hand luggage. A laminated card stating what medical conditions I suffer from along with details of any medications that I am allergic to, is always tucked inside the bag with the pills. I was a Girl Guide in my youth, so I guess their motto "always be prepared" has stuck with me!
