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.

Domino effect

It’s all a matter of how you look at life and see everything. Two people can be in the same situation but both have very different perspectives. Being able to look at the glass half full instead of half empty isn't always easy to do, but if you make a concerted effort and change your mind-set, with determination you can push negativity away and replace it with positive thoughts. Like a domino effect or the ripples on a pond that circle ever outward, you and everything surrounding, will be effected. Ultimately this makes it easier to cope with the harsh things we often have to deal with in life. 

My husband has a saying; "problems don't exist, only solutions exist". Whenever we have come up against an obstacle in life, we always find a way around it. Whether you suffer from ill health or not, having a positive attitude can only enrich one's character and give you the tools to cope with anything thrown your way. I am constantly challenged as my health deteriorates, and although there are occasions when I feel down, the majority of the time I am still able to count my blessings and see the silver lining in all this chaos. So if you're feeling down in the dumps, make an assertive effort to be optimistic and once you've knocked that first domino down - you'll find the rest will follow.
