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.

Pretty shoes

What woman doesn't like pretty shoes? I have to admit, when walking past a shoe store, captivated, my eyes are quickly drawn to elegant high heeled, but totally impracticable shoes. Sadly, needless to say, I can no longer wear such stylish eye-catching footwear. I now buy sensible, comfortable sneakers for the winter, giving great support for my arches. In the warmer weather, I wear orthopedic sandals, which are about as exciting as a left over cheese sandwich which has been sitting in the fridge for two days! All summer I was searching for a pretty pair of orthopedic sandals, and was bitterly disappointed by the absurdly poor selection on offer. Just because a sandal is orthopedic, doesn't mean it has to look boring and something even your grandma wouldn't wear! Why can't the manufacturers make pretty, elegant, "I've got to have a pair of those" orthopedic sandals?

  1. You live in a wonderful country that produces some of the most comfortable shoes i have ever worn! Not meaning to push brands, I find that Naots, whilst are not quite the fashion statement, leave my aching feet saying, 'thank you", and "Beautifeel" are more stylish yet also comfortable....
