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.

Hats off to the staff

I take my hat off to the amazing staff who work at the Retirement Home nearby. I have been visiting there regularly for the past five years, and on many occasion have had opportunity to witness first-hand the very high standards to which the facility is run. The staff are indeed quite remarkable, and it is not merely a job, but a vocation. They are dedicated, caring and compassionate, treating the residents with dignity and grace. The patience and gentle understanding they demonstrate is clearly evident, and should it ever be deemed necessary for me to be placed in a Home, I hope I am fortunate enough to be cared for in a residence with comparable standards. It is heart-warming to see the kindness and empathy with which they carry out their daily duties. One truly sees the best of humanity.
