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.

Take a silent moment with me

I received sad news yesterday, that a friend’s mother passed away having fought Parkinson’s disease for several years. My deepest sympathies go out to my friend and her family who I'm sure are receiving the much needed support and comfort from family and friends surrounding them at this time. I ask you to join me in a silent moment, where ever you are, and although you may not know this lady, take a minute to reflect, for she was someone’s wife, mother, grandmother, friend and neighbour, a fellow Parkinson’s sufferer – and she will be sorely missed by those who loved her. May she rest in peace.
