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.

A Moment Of Silence

It is not yet light outside and the hour is early; not even a bird can be heard or seen. I awoke with one person on my mind and it is with great sadness I sit here writing this morning. Unfortunately yesterday, someone I knew personally, who bravely battled Parkinson's for some years, passed away. It doesn't matter what age a person is, it's always too soon to lose a loved one and our thoughts and prayers are with his dear wife, who lovingly cared for him, and his family and friends. My husband and I send our deepest condolences to the family and hope that they are given grace and strength during this difficult and sad time.

If you are reading my blog, you may suffer from Parkinson's, are a caregiver, or live with another chronic illness. Please join me in a moment of silence, for although you may not know this man, you no doubt understand the journey he and his family have endured. He was someone's husband, father, brother, friend, and will be sorely missed by those who loved him. May he now rest in peace, and be fondly remembered.
