I am a single, gay, epileptic working Mum. I work helping the elderly with dementia and I also in schools working with children who have special needs. I enjoy writing, reading, walking, music and movies.

I'm like to write about many different subjects so expect a bit of a mix! I do intend to have a lot of articles about epilepsy and LGBT issues as these are topics that I feel I have some knowledge on that I would enjoy sharing and hopefully offer some advice to others.
