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.

Medications galore!

Getting the right medication for any Parkinson's patient, is a matter of trial and error. One has to be very patient whilst trying different tablets, varying the dosage, attempting different intervals between medication, even deciding whether to take pills before or after meals. The possibilities are endless, but thank goodness today there are many good Parkinson's medications on the market, so at least if one isn't suitable, there's always something else to try. Whoever first said "patience is a virtue" must have had Parkinson's disease! I still wait in hope of a cure, like so many other millions of Parkinson’s sufferers around the world. Sorry to sound a little impatient but if you’re out there working on a cure, please do hurry!
