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.

Amazing Progress

We are all waiting for a miracle to happen, and all over the world scientists and doctors are working tirelessly to find a cure or treatment to stop this devastating disease. A very exciting new technique is being tested in Canada, where they are performing a revolutionary treatment with ultrasound to stop essential tremors. Using an MRI machine, ultrasound beams are directed at the part of the brain, killing the cells that are causing the uncontrollable tremors. The procedure does not require anaesthetic or any form of cutting, and the patient should be able to return home the same day after the procedure. Although still in its infancy, and only five patients have so far undergone this technique, the results are looking very promising. It's very exciting and gives one hope. This incredible new progress, could very well pave the way for new methods of treating Parkinson's. Take a look at this link and see for yourself!
