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.

There's no place like home

Being disabled, I spend much time at home, so it’s important that I feel good in my surroundings. The kitchen seems to be the central element of our home, a place where everyone congregates, by the warmth of the stove, where a pot is merrily simmering, beckoning to taste a comforting bowl of hot soup. The oven exuding the delicious smells of a chocolate cake that has yet to make its appearance and the tempting aroma of freshly brewed coffee floats through the air invitingly, as all are gathered around our small kitchen table, in a squashed but cosy atmosphere. They say that “home is where the heart is” and as corny as this may sound, I think it’s very true. No matter where one travels, be it business or pleasure, there is no place like home.
