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.

Speaking engagement - clad in armour

Tonight I have another speaking engagement, and see this as a great opportunity to spread the word bringing greater awareness about Gaucher and Parkinson’s disease. Whilst I can still talk and get my message out there, I shall endeavour not to miss any chance to speak, whether to a small or large audience. I rested all day yesterday, and intend doing nothing today so I shall have enough strength to deliver and impart, what has become somewhat of a campaign over the last few months. Information and education is my crusade, I have a smile as my shield, and a strong fighting spirit as my armour. I'm ready for battle – bring on the public speaking!
