Writer, journalist, novelist, giver of advice

This is where I write about pretty much everything I love; usually emotion, because I think that’s where we all connect. I write about depression because I have depression, and I think it’s good to talk about it. Sharing can bring us out of the dark and into the light. That’s why I wrote a book about it; Shoot the Damn Dog, and I am pleased and honoured that it helps so many people, who write to me sharing their experiences. I wish I could reply to every letter, but I simply can't, because there are so many, but sometimes, it’s just good to get our thoughts down on paper. It makes us feel less alone and I hope it helps you as much as it helps me to know that we are in this together, and that there are people who truly understand.

I haven't posted on this website for some time, because I have been very unwell, (that damn dog again) but now the light has returned, I would like to connect with you all again because, really, life is about connection and it is what we lose when we are in the shadows.

So, hello again.
