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.

Profoundly Life Changing

Talking with a man I've known for some years, I was taken aback by his account of how a heart attack had profoundly changed his view on life. As if by grace given a second chance, his ordeal left him with the gift to see life from a clear uncluttered perspective. He is able to really see what is important, pays attention, noticing things others are oblivious to, and knows what matters most. He has miraculously been given the insight to what so many spend a life time searching for. So I now realise that this unassuming, quiet, charming man, ‘gets it’! Still waters run deep. As in the popular award winning film “Avatar”, the line that comes to mind: “I see you”!
