My Poems About Me


About Me

I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2015 and had a stroke in 2018, followed with Parkinson's Dementia diagnosis in 2021, and December 2022 I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, it is not all bad though, the situation that I find myself in has allowed me to pursue my passion which is writing poetry and short stories, and just observing the human race but at my pace, which is now in a motor wheelchair, this is my company car and without it I would be stuck indoors but with it I can access public transport, volunteer for different groups and keep myself mobile and sane, also appreciate the beauty of nature.

My first book What if? was published January this year and my second book inside my mind in June this year 2023, both are about Parkinson's disease, relationships, life observation's spiritual/ religious , political and just my take on things and looking at things through different eyes.

I hope you find them funny, informative, passionate, sad, real thoughts real lives, my 3rd book is in progress and will differ considerably from my previous two books, this will probably be published In November 2023.

Please don't hesitate to connect with me if you have any questions or just want to chat.

Thank you for indulging me in my passion .

Life is good it is just different, I could not have considered writing books without the support of my amazing grown up children Emma and Gary, who pick me up every time I fall down, emotionally and literally.
