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.

Support Team

I have to say a big “thank you” to my daughter and the ladies who kept an eye on me whilst my darling was sailing on the high seas. Their friendship and support is a valued gift and got me through the week. I don’t know if they gathered together and pre-planned their “support relay” but I was kept well entertained, busy and fed during the five days my husband was away. I even had marvellous phone and Internet support. What more could I have asked for? Receiving wonderful support, whether family or friends is priceless, and I consider myself very lucky indeed. Through writing my book and blog each day, I have also made invaluable contacts with other fellow sufferers and a sort of global support network has been created. To be in communication with someone half way across the world that has Parkinson’s, lending a listening ear that relate and understand totally, is pretty cool I think. Ladies, I truly appreciate your concern and support - thank you all.
