I am the author of books The Happy Man who refused Love and Help: Are you capable of murder, The Woman with a Fish in her Head: An Alcoholic or Worrier and Then Life Took Control: A Journal from Sickness to Wellbeing. The latter publication received a starred review in the Nursing Standards, the UK’s best selling nursing journal. When I'm not writing, I spend time in parks observing people, dogs, birds and insects. Talking to strangers and relating with dogs, birds and insects, is how I feed my love of relationships with all, and the world. Before I started writing, I was diagnosed with the inflammatory bowel disease Ulcerative Colitis and underwent life-saving surgery. What followed was a rollercoaster of depression, alcoholism and counselling. Determined to make ‘good’ of this ‘bad’ situation, I pursued a Health Studies degree, at Middlesex University, London. Thereafter, I qualified as a self-management tutor, helping hundreds of patients improve their physical and mental health. I currently lecture in universities and am writing my fourth title.
