with or without Multiple Sclerosis

Welcome to

Writing has always been a passion and a pleasure. The idea for my first book ‘Born Together’ came and found me. I finally had the freedom to write and an overwhelming desire to share my story.

  • Born Together shares the fascinating story of how motherhood and Multiple Sclerosis entered my life together. No matter what was thrown my way I always found a way to manage and overcome.
  • Born Together will inspire people to live a full and positive life, despite adversity and ill-health.
  • Born Together shares a new, pioneering and promising treatment in the world of Multiple Sclerosis
  • Born Together offers practical support through the MS jigsaw. It tells the world that anything is possible with the right attitude & absolute, resolute, unrelenting determination

You may not have a choice in what happens to you, but you have a choice in how you respond. The MS Jigsaw shows you where to begin.
