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.

Comfortable car

Many cars are fairly low and take a bit of manoeuvring on my part to get in and out without causing pain to my hips. I took a taxi some time ago, and usually they are regular cars, but this particular one was higher (like a small SUV), making it so easy and comfortable for a person with disabilities, I complimented the driver on his choice of vehicle. He told me that when he picks up passengers from a nearby retirement home, the passengers there are delighted with his taxi as they find it far easier to get in and out of than a regular car. His taxi is now a bit hit with the home’s residents, and I can certainly understand why. I was taken out yesterday in a car that was considerably higher than our car, and again I found it a pleasure, so easy getting into the passenger seat and getting out of the car was a synch. If you are about to get a new car, take the height into consideration, as it really does make a difference.
