This blog is full of information on back pain, chronic pain, fibromyalgia and arthritic conditions. As a sufferer of most of the problems above, I am always on the look out for any type of pain relief. I was born in Manchester and lived in Spain, Cheshire and now live in Nottingham. I am married and have two adult children living in London and Australia.
I ran my own businesses for a number of years while fighting constant back problems. Surgery after surgery didn't work so eventually I had to retire and sell my business, but that was after winning a number of business awards.
One part of the business that I loved most was writing a monthly newsletter, so when I retired I was delighted to get a freelance writing job for my local newspaper covering news, restaurant reviews and events.
I'd started to get the writing bug and decided to start a blog on 'Back Pain' in the hope of helping others in a similar situation. That was it, I was hooked, and soon had a number of blogs from 'Weight Loss Tips' to 'All Things Vintage'.
I wrote a number of health articles in some glossy magazines including 'BackCare', 'FibroMyalgia', and 'Vivo' and realised I had enough posts to put a book together.
I have published some books around my blogs 'Over One Hundred Tips and Ways to Lose Weight' and 'Over One Hundred Tips on Baking Cakes', but I haven't really had much success with those. However, 'Complementary & Alternative Therapies for Pain', did a little better and I have just published 'Fate Takes Two Hands', Memoirs of a Physiotherapist in the 1930's, which is a true story about my mother in law when she was a Physiotherapist. This January (2017) I published another book which is about dieting called 'Diet's Away'.
It's still early days for me to write a 'proper' fiction book, but I have the plot and I am getting the characters together and writing the other books has given me the confidence to never, ever give up just give it a go. Not bad for someone who left school without even an 'O' level in English.
