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.

Neuroscience and Gratitude

If you have been following my blog, you will know that I am a great believer in always looking at the glass half full, finding the silver lining in everything, being grateful and counting one's blessings. I was therefore very interested to read an article expressing the way by which I live, and various studies that were made proving this point.

Being content and grateful is a little contagious I think. Take a simple example, such as smiling at someone, for they will undoubtedly smile back. If you talk to someone in a whisper, the chances are that they will answer you in a whisper too. Of course the same applies to yawning, and if you yawn, you're bound to make someone else yawn. 

The old saying "What goes around, comes around" comes to mind, or as a film depicting the same philosophy of "Paying It Forward" spelt out so clearly that treating others how you would wish to be treated really does work.
