There is a lot to be said for the rather dated, but much loved British custom of afternoon tea at 4 o’clock. It’s a comforting ritual that no matter where one lives in the world, this outdated tradition lives on. Seeing the table laid with china plates and teacups, a steaming pot of tea, accompanied by freshly baked scones, butter, homemade jam and deliciously rich clotted cream, with a touch of nostalgia takes me back to childhood. Give me an English cream tea anytime!
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.
