My First Novel - Coming Soon in 2012

I have enjoyed a life of sunshine and sin! I used to think I was untouchable. Then I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I felt physically disabled and psychologically crushed. Luckily I found ‘Parkinson’s UK’ and through them and this forum I was able to connect with people who hadn’t let the illness control their lives.

I’ve always enjoyed reading science fiction epics. I decided it was my turn to write in the genre I loved. It was hard at first, because one side of my body responds slowly and awkwardly but I soon learned to type with one hand.

Through my writing I have been able to forget my problems and discover a whole new reality! My first novel will be published towards the end of the year. I truly hope others enjoy my work, but successful or not it doesn’t matter I will continue to write.
