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.

Parkinson’s Poetry spreads the word

Getting my message out and spreading the word takes many hours painstakingly working on the computer through the Internet, reaching those who need support whether they be fellow sufferers or caregivers. Slowly the public are becoming more aware that Parkinson’s is not a disease that only affects the elderly, but can strike the younger generation too. I was just 44 when diagnosed, and shockingly have since come across many people diagnosed much younger than this. The need for education and further awareness is paramount. Parkinson’s has attacked me, which I take personally and will fight tooth and nail. I will not give in. I will not let Parkinson’s ruin my life and that of my wonderful family. I was thrilled that my book and blog site now appear on “New Book Blogger” Website along with “A Poet’s Word” Website. Help me in my battle by spreading the word. Pass on these links to anyone who has Parkinson’s or is a caregiver. Together we are millions of people worldwide, and strength in numbers we can fight this lousy disease, joining forces with doctors, researchers, scientists, pharmaceutical companies, sufferers and caregivers. I have faith we will win this battle.
