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.

Hurricane Sandy

We all encounter ‘off’ days where we have a moan and feel a little sorry for ourselves, but things are put sharply into perspective, as we recently watched the terrible events on television unfold as Hurricane Sandy destroyed everything in its path, leaving devastation behind. My heart goes out to all the people affected by this natural disaster. I can’t begin to imagine what it must be like to lose one’s home, and all one’s belongings. The rippling effects of the aftermath are so enormous, it makes one wonder how and when some semblance of normality will be re-established. Man can plan and take precautions, but in the final event we are no match for Mother Nature’s natural elements. With the winter weather arriving, the problems must be compounded, and merely keeping warm and dry becomes a pressing concern. Our prayers and thoughts are with all the people who have been affected, and may your lives be restored to normality as quickly as possible.
