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.

Life's ups and downs

Life generally never stands still, and putting health to one side for the moment, everyone experiences ups and downs, and events take place that we often have little control over that occasionally throw a spanner in the works. We make plans and have schedules, appointments and lists of things to do, but invariably when things go awry, one has to stay flexible, and go with the flow. It’s no use fighting upstream a strong current that has a will of its own. So it is with life, you sometimes just have to let things "go". Although ill health will naturally govern most of one's day, other affairs can sometimes take over, and coping with everything can get a little overwhelming.
Making the most out of the good times, the happy moments that bring us joy is all the more important. Friday is my favourite day of the week, as this is the day that my  husband usually doesn’t work, and this is our special alone time together. Whether it's doing things together around the home, or going out to one of the many little cafes in our area for a cup of coffee, it doesn't matter what we do; just spending time together is what brings me pleasure and is important.
Shoes ….what woman doesn't love shoes? Years ago I used to wear high heeled stiletto shoes, but these shoes were not made for walking …. hence my topic for this week's article in The HuffingtonPost.
