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.

Exciting Parkinson's breakthrough

A news report by Michelle Roberts (Health Reporter) for the BBC News wrote about Genetic Parkinson's disease brain cells made in a laboratory. The breakthrough means they can now see exactly how mutations in the Parkin gene cause the disease in an estimated one in 10 patients with Parkinson's. If you would like to read the article for yourself, here is the link: BBC News With so much research going on all around the world, let's hope a cure is not too far away.
