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.

Sad Loss

I write this entry with a sad and heavy heart, for I lost my dear mother on Friday night. She was 92 and lived in a Retirement Home, where she received the very best of care. Although frail and weak, she fortunately drifted off peacefully in her sleep, after having lived a long and full life. My mother was a remarkable woman, with great spirit, and a strong heart. She was very sociable, and hospitable, an amazing cook, generous to a fault, and loved her family dearly. She had a passion for life which is probably where I received my resilient nature from and she never missed an opportunity or wasted a moment. She would always say "Never let the grass grow under your feet", and I think we all live by this. I will miss her very much but have many wonderful memories to hold on to, as I'm sure anyone who knew her will agree, for she was a special lady, a mother, grandmother and great grandmother. You will therefore have to excuse me for not writing further in my blog for a few days.
