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.

Physiotherapy with music

I was asked if listening to music whilst doing physiotherapy exercises would be helpful? Absolutely "YES"! I think that music is highly beneficial and listening to favourite songs not only boosts morale lifting one’s spirit, but makes a daily regime of monotonous exercises a little less boring, and I find the time passes quickly. Music is definitely a great tool, so listen to whatever makes you happy and feel good. However, when I am writing, I prefer peace and quiet, and at 02:00 this morning as Parkinson's wouldn't allow me to lie in bed any longer, I got up and was writing in the silence of our kitchen for an hour or two. Have a good day everyone, and put on some good music!
