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.

Book for Caregivers

Sharing information is what it’s all about when suffering any chronic disease. A marvellous lady Sherryl, who is a resource for those fighting Parkinson’s, has much experience and good advice to offer, spoke about a book that sounds like a “must” for any caregiver, and in the spirit of supporting each other, I am wanted to tell you about this book I didn't know existed.

The Caregiver Help book is designed to provide caregivers the tools to increase their self-care and their confidence to handle difficult situations, emotions, and decisions. These tools will help caregivers to:

• Reduce personal stress
• Communicate effectively with family members, doctors, and paid help
• Practice self-care
• Reduce guilt, anger, and depression
• Experience relaxation techniques
• Make tough decisions
• Set goals and problem solve

Thank you Sherryl for your continued support that you give everyone in the community and the helpful recommendations you offer. Keep up the good valuable work that you do.
