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.

It was a rainy, chilly night, and at the last minute without prior planning, I happened to be in the neighbourhood of my cousins, so I dropped in spontaneously for a visit. Just as I got out of the car, the heavens opened and the rain came down in a deluge. At my slow shuffling speed, from the car until the front door of their house, was enough time to get soaked through, but it was well worth it. Sitting next to their fire drying off my clothes, hands cupped around a steaming cup of tea, I thoroughly enjoyed a couple of hours   companionably chatting. We are never short of conversation. My mother always said that being a "chatter box" was genetic and that it runs in the family. I guess she was right. It was a lovely evening, and proving that spontaneity can often be most rewarding. I guess what I'm trying to say; don't let any opportunity pass you by, make the most of every moment spending time with those you care about.
