I have written a book

"You should write a book"

I've lost count of the number of people who have said that to me over the years.

So I did.

I promised Andy I would.  I promised I would capture our story and share it so that people could understand that we really are ordinary people thrown into extraordinary circumstances.  I was no different to thousands of other working mums in the UK, trying to juggle a career with childcare.  Until Daisy came along, and my world changed overnight.

It's experience that has shaped me and given me the resilience to face the challenges life has presented over the years.

That's why the book's strapline is "It's not the cards you're dealt, it's how you play them"

Andy played poker and he knew all too well the game was more than the hand you were dealt.  I hope I have done our story justice.  The people who have read early edits seem to think so.

My book is being launched on 12th September on what would have been our 25th wedding anniversary.  It's my gift to Andy and a legacy to our children.

You can pre-order a copy before the launch date and receive it the day before.  For all pre-orders I will donate 5% of the rrp to our hospice, ShootingStar-Chase.

The book will be available to order from Amazon and all good bookshops on the launch date.

 International orders and ebook orders will be available from that time too. An audiobook is in the pipeline for release at a later date.

An empty wheelchair

One of the first things I did the day after Andy died was to bag up all his meds, injections and creams and take them back to the hospital.  They were a visible sign of his cancer, they were not Andy, they were things that had become part of our lives after his cancer diagnosis and I didn't want them in the house any more.

I wanted to remember a time when life with Andy wasn't medicalised.  When it didn't revolve around hospitals and chemo and drug regimens.

In only a short time we had collected quite a pharmacy for Andy
