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.

Book Review

My latest book “A Silver Lining” has been well received and the message of keeping cheerful, maintaining a positive attitude and making the most out of my life whilst battling chronic disease seems to be getting across. I am just an ordinary woman, who you would pass by in the street, not realising for one moment what my life is like. We've all at some point in our lives fallen in love, had children, lost loved ones, known grief, laughed and felt joy; for all these things are part of life. Although there is a serious undertone to my book, I have included many humorous true stories which I am sure most of you will be able to relate to, making this book light reading and hopefully bringing a smile to your face. A tale of two diseases; I refuse to give up by using a sense of humour to get through each day. Eternally optimistic I always manage to find a silver lining despite great adversity.  I would like to thank Barbara Morrison, a poet and writer, for writing a wonderful review of my book which you can read on her weekly blog site where she writes from a literary viewpoint. "A Silver Lining is available from Amazon or from Smashwords.
