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 welcome break

Yesterday my daughter took me to a shopping mall for a few hours, and the outing was a delight, looking at the vast never ending array of shops displaying their colourful wares. My daughter got quite a “work out”, as pushing even the lightest person in a wheelchair, is still hard work. For me to get out of the house and see some life, was a very welcome break. I would never have managed to go around all the shops and enjoy the morning pain free, without the aid of my wheel chair. Walking short distances I can manage, but a mammoth shopping expedition proves far too much for me. We ended up not buying the illusive handbag I am in search of, but this was of little importance as it was a thoroughly enjoyable morning, and for me there is nothing more precious than spending time with my daughter.
