It takes me so long to do just simple things, and I tire easily, so you'll have to forgive me for not writing more this morning.
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.

A new lease on life
For several months leading up to moving, emotionally I was at an all time low, for we were living in the most difficult and uncomfortable circumstances. Although exhausted from the upheaval and recent move, this house has literally given me a new lease on life, and living in an environment that makes me and my family feel good, couldn't have come at a better time. Even the dog appears happier! Often one sees on television home improvement programmes, where a team of experts change the appearance of a home, and wow us with inventive ideas and colour schemes. I was very concerned to create an atmosphere that would ooze tranquillity and calm, using warm natural colours. It's amazing how simply colour can affect one's mood, and although there are still things to finish, a few boxes left to unpack; we are making headway and it is wonderful to be here.
