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.

Special Thanks

I wanted to say a special “thank you” to a particular lady for it is an honour and privilege to have her in my life. Getting to know someone properly over the years, is much like peeling an onion with many layers, as each one is removed, yet another facet of character and personality is revealed. I continue to learn and be amazed at the generosity of heart, understanding and supportive spirit of a woman I hold much admiration for, and who is very dear to me. As we all grow older, and hopefully a little wiser, it has become very clear to me who I can count on and who I truly enjoy spending time with. I have little patience or time for superficial friends, and would rather be in the company of someone who has depth, and yes layers – like an onion! Having poor health one is not afforded the luxury of wasting precious energy and time, therefore I highly recommend concentrating on doing things you enjoy that are good for you, being in positive and uplifting company, and making the most out of each day. Cherish and spend time with those you love.
