Hello, and welcome to my website



Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoy having a look around.

What's this website all about? You will find my latest

books, articles, blogs, guests, news, and of course plenty

about my patient advocacy work! Yes, OK I'm a bit of a

rebel but sometimes needs must.


I'm passionate about providing support to cancer survivors so I've created The Cancer Hub where you can discover interviews with cancer charities, businesses, and support groups. There's a separate section for cancer memoirs and their authors plus a section for the all-important survivor stories. Please contact me for guest post opportunities or if you are a cancer-related business and would like to be interviewed. I would love to hear from you.

Please hop over to the Newsletter Signup page to find out what you can expect each month! Also on the signup page, you'll find a FREE download. I've put together a dossier of independent studies carried out that investigate permanent hair loss from chemotherapy drug Taxotere, their stats/results, and conclusions. You can 'click & print' this dossier and breast cancer patients can present it to their oncologists, if they're prescribed Taxotere/Docetaxel, to show the evidence that permanent hair loss is NOT rare. Or you can use it as your own reference.  It is not necessary to signup for the newsletter.

I'm a former weekly columnist of the UK Bella magazine. Since leaving Bella I have written media articles, a memoir, three travelogues, and taken part in many podcast interviews.  


 Take a look at my blog page and discover a variety of topics plus you can be inspired by guest author Claire Harbour Lyell's The Power of a Story and don't miss my latest blog

My latest manuscript is now with my editor and will be out before the summer. It's the sequel to Naked in the Wind but it is also a standalone story so don't worry if you haven't read the first one.

Don't miss out on the full story though.
