Hello! Welcome to my website


I hope you enjoy your visit where you can catch up with my latest articles, stories and books.

Take a look at my blog page and discover other authors. You can be inspired by guest author Claire Harbour Lyell 'The Power of a Storyand read my latest blog 'A Dirty Secret about Big Pharma'.

I'm a former weekly columnist of the UK Bella magazine, written many published articles, a memoir and two travelogues plus taken part in podcast interviews.

The last ten years I've spent raising awareness about permanent alopecia caused by the chemotherapy drug Taxotere, patient rights/safety and co-founded a global support group for sufferers of this disfiguring side-effect after finishing breast cancer treatment. Too many women are discovering their hair loss is permanent, without being warned, and face a life-time of wigs, headscarves and hats. I have started a new campaign #WeAreEveryWoman 


You can mostly find me, these days, in the garden pretending to grow vegetables, at my desk, fishing (my new interest) or playing with my granddaughter. Housework, what's that?

Get comfy, pour yourself a coffee and have fun!


Join me for a chat on Facebook and Twitter, I'd love to hear from you.


Thanks for popping in...

PS -I'm working hard on my next book which includes two exclusive interviews! With who? A very talented actress and a very talented artist. That's all you are getting out of me apart from if you love Star Trek, you will be in for a treat.
