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.

Patience is a virtue

Having Parkinson's disease can test one's spouse to the very edge of desperation, so fortunately for me, my husband has the patience of a saint. My memory not as it once was, I often repeat myself, and ask him the same question again and again. Sometimes I actually remember asking him the question, but don't remember what answer he gave. It must be beyond frustrating for him and he admirably lets it ride over his head, realising it's not me, but one of the cruel symptoms of Parkinson's. Did I mention that I often repeat myself?!!!!!!!!!!!! So to all you care givers out there, who like my husband find themselves in this irritating and sad situation - just know you are not alone!
