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.

Valentine's Day - Parkinson's way

I enjoyed meeting a lovely group of ladies last night when I was given the opportunity to speak to them about living with Gaucher and Parkinson’s, imparting some knowledge whilst demonstrating one can live a full happy life, be positive and cheerful despite battling two chronic diseases. I hope I gave you all food for thought and appreciate that good health is a precious gift.
A romantic at heart, I cannot let Valentine’s Day go past without indulging in a little romance and as foolish as it may sound, I rather like receiving red roses and chocolates. Although Valentine’s Day is not celebrated everywhere, it has become more known and popular as the years pass. I believe that any excuse to legitimately be sentimental, expressing ones passion and indulging in some romance, is something we could all do with a little more. I for one will be making a special dinner, starting with cocktails, shaken not stirred (of course!), followed by……well I had better not say any more for my husband may very well be reading this blog, and I’ll have blown the surprise. So the remainder I will leave to your imagination. Have a happy Valentine’s Day.
