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.

Tip of the day!

If you are on a lot of medication like me, you probably also have a pill box marked with the days of the week, each section holding one day's medication. However with Parkinson, and I'm sure the same applies to many diseases and their medications, pills often have to be taken at specific times during the day. To remember to take pills at unusual times, such as 11:30, or 15:30, I would sometimes forget, ending up taking the medication late! We had the brilliant idea (I expect many of you have already thought of this before we did!) of setting the alarm on my mobile phone, which goes off daily at the required times when I should take my medications. This way, I can't forget. It's been such a help and I think it's the little things like this that can make a small improvement to one's day.
