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.

I was asked by someone yesterday if I answer all the e-mails I receive, to which I gave a resounding "YES"! Hundreds of e-mails have been flooding in since the book has been available and my Web site up and running, and I have answered every single e-mail individually. If someone has taken the time to write, expressing interest in making contact or simply touching base with me being in a similar situation, I feel most strongly in writing back personally to each and every one. This is the whole idea - that contact can be made, support given, just knowing you are not alone is a comfort. The Internet has given us all a great tool in being able to connect with people from all over the world in similar circumstances. Together, we can share experiences, learn useful tips or fresh ideas, and hopefully with a little humour, lighten what may have been a bad day. A lot of people from all over the world are going into my Web site and reading my Blog. You may not want to write anything, but I know you are reading what I have to say, and I know you are there. I hope you have a good day, where ever you are, and smile! I read in a ladies magazine yesterday, that if you're not wearing any make up, at least wear a smile as this is far more effective and beautiful than any make up! So don't forget to smile!
