If you think I have been sitting back on my laurels, you are highly mistaken. Making the most out of every moment, I have made full use of the insomnia that Parkinson’s has so generously given me, turning me into a prolific writer at all hours of the night or day. When you are still soundly asleep in your bed, I am sitting in the kitchen, writing like a there’s no tomorrow. I have just completed a mystery/adventure story for children ages 10-13, which is now available on Kindle through Amazon. The title is: “Slipping Through Time”. I hope you’ll take a look at my book, the cover, dedication and first couple of chapters of which can be viewed freely on Amazon. And now as the night has slipped through into morning, it truly is time to take a well-deserved break and make a pot of tea. So I will bid you farewell till tomorrow!
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.
