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.

Reducing Stress

Whatever you can do to reduce stress to a minimum is highly advisable. Everyone is different and therefore what works for one person doesn't necessarily work for someone else. Meditation is excellent and Yoga if you can manage it. Listening to music, gardening or any activity where your mind can focus on something else relieves harmful stress that is so damaging. For me, writing works best, by pouring my thoughts down on paper really helps. I can’t say it totally removes whatever I am stressing or worrying about, but it can lessen the intensity by putting it in perspective. I can’t stress enough (forgive the pun) how detrimental stress, worries and tension can exacerbate your health. So please, take a big deep breath, and find what works best to relax and calm you.
