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.

You have a voice

I have been watching the amazing energy, enthusiasm and hope that sufferers along with their family and friends around the world are displaying and expressing in a loud voice creating global awareness to our plight in finding a cure. April is Parkinson's Awareness Month, so many have put on their thinking caps and come up with some really original ideas, and ways of getting the word out there, making people stop and pay attention. Everyone has a voice, and together we can raise the roof with a huge crescendo, so that finally no one will be able to ignore us. We will be heard - we are full of determination, and most of all hope. Every day brings us closer to finding a cure and the end of suffering this degenerative intolerable disease. I found a marvellous choir on YouTube and wanted to share it with you. Watching their faces, you get a real sense of community - the Parkinson community that many belong to. Well done to 'The Voices of Hope Choir' - I think the world has heard your message loud and clear - bravo to you all!
