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.

It's a wonderful life

The film "It's a Wonderful Life", a much loved favourite starring James Stewart, is often watched at this time of year during the Holiday season. If Clarence (an angel in the film) were to magically appear, revealing what life would have been like, had you never been born; would you end up embracing the life you have, even if like myself, you suffer from ill health? James Stewart who plays the leading role of George, understands at the end the film, that however insignificant we might feel, the small role we may have been assigned in life, and  sometimes plans go awry, this is the life we were supposed to lead. We may play some small part in the bigger picture, but had we not been here at all, things might have been very different. I like to believe that we can all make a difference - the impact may not seem monumental, or earth shattering, but like a domino effect, every action, each word spoken or written, may have changed or touched someone at a crucial point. I am sure that most people have done something during their lives, possibly that they are unaware of, that has made a significant impact on others. For those who are celebrating the Holidays I wish you seasonal greetings and a truly wonderful life!
