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.

A film worth seeing

We watched a film called “Love and other drugs” starring Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal, which is about a 26 year old woman diagnosed with Parkinson’s. The story is a drama/romance winning awards at the Golden Globes for 2011, and is well worth seeing. Needless to say anyone with Parkinson’s will undeniably relate to many of the scenarios, but the film would appeal to a wide audience for the captivating attraction and enduring love between a woman and man enchantingly speaks universally to us all.
