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 good hand

I found the other day a “Four Suiter Card Holder”. If you are a card player, this is a wonderful idea that makes holding multiple cards in one hand so much easier. This holder is made from wood, has four-tiers, allowing you to view all your cards. When I saw this gadget, it brought to mind the verse of one of my poems:
“As the disease progresses, dignity goes out the door,
The shell of the person, who once was, is now a façade,
And just when you think, you can't take any more,
Parkinson's deals you, one more terrible card.”

  1. What a great idea; can't wait to show the Kaluki girls; well add that to the card shuffler!
