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.

I just can’t sit still

I pity anyone unfortunate enough to sit behind me at a lecture, for unable to sit still, my constant fidgeting must really irritate others. Likewise, I think I should stay clear of auction houses too. Can you imagine with every twitch, jerky movement or shake; with no intention of purchasing anything at all, I could accidentally put the price up of whatever is going under the auctioneer’s hammer. Playing Poker or Bridge would also be highly distracting to any serious player should they find themselves at my table. So I think I should stick to activities where it is perfectly alright to wriggle and shake. This morning we saw many people in an organised run, escorted by police cars and support teams, and presume it was in aid of Cancer, as all the women were wearing pink hair bands. How I would love to be able to run but I can neither run nor sit still, but I do my utmost to live life to the full, and will enjoy the weekend, seeing family and friends, who enrich our lives. Have a great weekend, and enjoy, relax and spend time with people who make you smile and laugh.
