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.

The best medicine

Never miss an opportunity to celebrate something. We had a wonderful evening with friends, who we feel we've known forever, and yet are relatively new in our lives. Having good friends sitting around the dining table, sharing a meal together, the laughter that filled our home last night, warmed our hearts and made us thankful our paths had met. I'm sure it happens to everyone, that occasionally you meet people with whom there is an immediate affinity; you just 'click'; almost as if you've always known each other. I was so busy laughing last night, I was barely conscious of the relentless pain and exhausted state that is unremitting. Clearly laughter is the best medicine!
