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.

Nordic Walking Poles

I was given a pair of Nordic Walking Poles recently, and having heard about this, and that some Parkinson's patients were finding a remarked improvement with their walking, I decided to give it a go. It's much harder than it looks, and getting the movement right takes quite a bit of practice. My co-ordination is not what it used to be, and I found it quite difficult to tackle. I would be interested to hear from anyone with Parkinson's who is using Nordic Poles and if they've felt any improvement with their walking. 

I am sorry I cannot write more this morning, but my present condition is not good and a very painful shoulder and arm are making it extremely difficult to write. So you'll have to forgive me this morning for my short blog. If you haven't already read my article this week and would like to read a little more, take a look at my piece  on The Huffington Post regarding independence.
