My Book

I became a published author in April 2019. My book “Letters to Matthew” is available from Amazon, Kenilworth Books, Warwick Books or directly from me.

Letters to Matthew’ invites you into my world of grief. It is not sugar coated or edited to make it an easy read, which is why it has been separated into two distinct parts.

Part one contains the heartfelt letters I wrote to my son Matthew after he died at the age of twenty-seven. The letters are a mixture of anguish, deep sorrow, humour, wisdom, personal insights and experiences that may resonate with others who have lost a special person. The letters were written in the moment and capture my thoughts, feelings and insights that were going on for me at the time. They are at times, a difficult read, but they highlight how grief changes over time and how writing played a big part in supporting me through the darkest period of my life.

Part two is about my journey of self-discovery and how I turned my grief and loss into something positive. This book is not about fixing people or forcing the healing process because, as the book explains, there is no cure for grief. Grief can only be absorbed, carried, experienced and cared for.
