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.

10 Things not to do

Everyone has a “to do list” – well at least most of us, but how many have a “not to do list”?
  1. Don't leave a glass perched dangerously close to the edge of the table.
  2. Don't buy more ice cream, as you know who'll finish it! 
  3. Don't try getting dressed when still damp after a shower - it's just impossible.
  4. Don't let everyone leave the house in a hurry in the morning before dressed, or it's all day in pyjamas again!
  5. Don't walk too close to the dog's water bowl - the floor is slippery.
  6. Don’t walk on a crowded pavement. No one notices a lack of balance.
  7. Don’t forget to take medication, otherwise memory fails and I’ll repeat no.2 on this list!
  8. Don’t attempt painting fingernails again – big mistake.
  9. Don’t put a cake in the oven and forget to set the timer.
  10. Don’t assume everyone else has also lost their sense of smell !
Now for something to put on your "to do list" - an entry from my blog appears on The Itima blog site, so you are welcome to take a look and leave a comment.
