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.

Climb every mountain

Reading about a remarkable man who hit the news with his successful mountain climbing to raise money for the Michael J.Fox Foundation, is truly inspirational. Roger Long was diagnosed at the age of 36 with Parkinson’s and is definitely putting up a fight, and refusing to give in. Take a look at Roger’s story and see how one man is making a difference, beating all odds whilst bringing greater awareness to this debilitating disease.  He says, it’s just one step in a journey as he works to conquer a challenge tougher than any mountain. I think we can all relate to that and I'm sure you’d agree that it takes great determination to achieve so much, and I wish him the very best of luck in his future climb of Kilimanjaro. There appear to be no limits where this incredible man is concerned.
