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.

Call me hopeful, an optimist, or even over enthusiastic, but I truly believe somewhere out there, someone has found, or is in the process of discovering out how to stop Parkinson's from progressing. The missing link, a piece of the puzzle that would complete the picture, cannot be too far away. So much research, studies and money is being spent on finding a cure for Parkinson's which affects millions of people worldwide, maybe we are closer than we think. Why do I tirelessly keep writing? speaking at every given opportunity, advocating and campaigning? Because my future and yours depends on it. If we can all do our part, make as much noise as possible, generate awareness like never before, something has to come from this global effort. I dream of being cured of Parkinson's, and living a normal long life with my darling husband by my side. I want to be here and still able to walk when my daughter marries one day. I would love to experience for myself the joy I see others who take delight in becoming grandparents. To grow old with my husband and to be a burden on this family no more is my greatest wish. Why shouldn't wishes come true? Maybe it's about time this one did! 

Take a look at some very interesting progress that the Albert Einstein College of Medicine regarding the most common genetic mutations in familial Parkinson's disease damage brain cells.

  1. Elaine, if anybody deserves to have their wish granted, you do. My hope to you is that all your wishes come true, especially the 'cure for Parkinson's wish.' Continue with your wonderful work as you are giving support to so many people.
