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.

Light bulb moment

Have you ever had a “light bulb moment” when someone tells you something quite simple, yet it turns out to be very valuable advice? An eye opening revelation, which made me think long and hard about a topic that is often overlooked, or maybe thought frivolous or trivial. Looking as good as one can, in fact plays quite an important role in one’s wellbeing, whether chronically ill or perfectly healthy. I wrote in my last blog entry about how important it is to “keep up appearances”, and realise that I am guilty as charged! Taking a good long look at myself realising my tracksuit which has seen better days will now be binned, and I’m on a mission to find a new glamorous one, which I'll be able to wear at home.
