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.

It is not my birthday today, but it would have been someone’s birthday who will always be very dear to my heart, and is greatly missed. The pain of losing someone close never entirely goes away, and my heart will constantly ache for my loss. We have always made a big fuss of birthdays in our family, and I will continue this tradition. I don’t think of a birthday as one aging and simply growing a year older. Instead I see it as a time to celebrate that someone special was born, enabling you to express appreciation that they are part of your life, a time to reflect on all the happy occasions and memories, giving a good opportunity to show you care.
