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 book well worth a look

Several days ago I wrote on my blog about "Stigma" as I feel there is a strong need for education and greater awareness on various health issues. I then happened to read a book by Jill Sadowsky called: ‘David’s Story’ jillsmentalhealthresources  This amazing courageous lady has written a compelling story about her son. I am in constant awe of the human spirit, reading this lady's story, blew me away. I think everyone has inner strengths that we can call upon when in times of need, and although we might feel ill-equipped to deal with certain terrible life changing circumstances, step by step, one day at a time, we can cope with far more than we would ever imagine.
