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.

Someone gave me a piece of paper from a cross stitch pattern that read "Count your life by smiles not tears". As I looked at this fragment of paper I remembered all the long conversations we’d had, and how lucky I am to have such wonderful people in my life who inspire and keep me motivated.

Today is the 1st April the beginning of Parkinson's Awareness Month. During this month, many of the support groups and organisations will be holding events to raise funds for research and increase public awareness. Why not take part in an activity or if you have a good idea - create something original. So let's get motivated and make April a month of non-stop action;  that everyone pays attention to a cause that lies close to the heart of so many millions of people around the world. The more noise we make, joining forces in great numbers we are strong, and with one united goal in mind - let's make 2013 the year that a cure is found!
