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.

Free Book

To celebrate writing my blog for an entire year, the complete entries have been turned into a book entitled: “I’ll Blog Till I Dropwhich you may download for FREE from Smashwords in whatever format you need. Once you are on Smashwords website, type “Elaine Benton” in the “search” box at the top right hand side, which should take you directly to my page. Please pass this on to anyone you know who is suffering Gaucher, Parkinson’s or any chronic disease, and caregivers. My intention is to spread the word and offer support. You can help me create greater awareness simply by downloading my free book and passing on this information to anyone who may benefit. It’s a lonely fight, a solitary soldier battling Parkinson’s alone, but together in numbers we gain strength and can be triumphant. Have a good weekend everyone!
