Thank you for showing an interest in me and what I do.
The picture is of my late husband Butch and I taken several years before he passed away after a cancer journey spanning almost three years.
Butch’s passing inspired me to write my book ‘Cancer Journey Handbook for Travellers, Carers & Friends. I wanted to help Travellers embarking on a cancer journey, to tell them about some of the options available to them and empower them at a time when they can feel disempowered. I also wanted to help Carers to feel less isolated and more informed, so I included a section for them in my book.
Grieving was a terrifying expedition into the unknown for me, so, to help me work through and share some of my emotions and experiences, I included a final section on Grief as well.
I self-published my book in 2008.
I am currently finalising my e-book ‘Butch’s Journey’. Although writing this has been a healing process for me, I’m sure there are some people who may want to read firsthand about a cancer experience, complete with the laughter and tears.

My next book is called Grieving with Honour, which I hope to begin writing at the end of this year. It is a warts and all account of the last three years as I have attempted to come to terms with my loss. I hope to inspire and uplift others who may be feeling isolated and lost as they begin their own expedition into grief.
I have also created a website Learning 2 Live Again for those of us who are grieving and want to share our thoughts, memories, fears and tears. I hope that by sharing with one another we can lift the veil on grief.

Cancer Journey Handbook

When my husband, Butch, was diagnosed with cancer I searched high and low for a book that would help me identify what we were going through, what we were experiencing and what to expect.  I could find lots of clinical-type books that told me impersonally what to do and what not to do, but I couldn’t find anything that prepared me emotionally or helped to empower us during our journey.
Late in 2007 while talking to some ‘new’ carers, I put their minds at rest about things they were experiencing.  After two years into the journey, I could tell them that these were all normal ‘carer side effects’.  So the idea of this book was born.
Before 2006 I didn’t know anything about cancer, except that people died from it.  I have now learnt enough to know that it is not always the cancer that kills people, but the things that doctors do or say to patients that has a profound effect on whether they survive or not.
As I wrote this book I also wanted people to be aware of some of the options open to them during their cancer journey, included in a section for carers and travellers.
There is also a third section dealing with the many aspects of grief.
I believe there is a need for a book that helps you identify what you are going through, to reassure you that you are not going crazy and maybe give you a little insight and inspiration.  Hopefully this book will be that to you.
