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.

Returning home

These past few days have flown by very quickly, and here we find ourselves packing our cases and heading for the airport. It has been the most amazing once in a lifetime experience and one I shall never forget. I am only sorry to be leaving Italy so soon. A few days are not enough to thoroughly take in and see this wonderful country with such warm welcoming people. Having never been to Italy before there was so much we didn't have time to see, we will have to come back for a longer visit.Every building, window or arch are richly decorated with stone carvings or paintings and one merely has to look down any street here to see the magnificent art that is there right in front of your eyes, like a permanent display of an era long ago when a city such as Rome took to heart the meaning of beauty. The Congress was well organised, it was great meeting everyone, and I thank them for the invitation, affording me the opportunity to give an oral presentation. This trip and in particular yesterday, will remain a firm wonderful memory. I am so fortunate to have a loving husband who supports me in all I do. As I said in my presentation, "there's a silver lining in everything, you've just go to know how to see it!"
