Welcome to my website.  I am a survivor of thyroid cancer, having lived with the condition for 14 years now.

My first book 'Thyroid Cancer for Beginners' details the early years of my condition , and also includes snippets of family life.  'Living With Thyroid Cancer' also contains an updated version of my first book plus a continuation of my treatment journey. 'Relapse'charts the effect on my life of the radical treatments needed for 2 more recurrences in 2014 and 2017.

Please do not expect these three books to be a walk in the park.  Thyroid cancer is often a very treatable condition, but the journey to remission can be quite an uncomfortable process. 

All books can be found on my Amazon author page.


I have found the British Thyroid Foundation to be extremely helpful and supportive.  My husband Phil and I took part in the BTF video above to help others who are also suffering with thyroid cancer.

'Thyroid Cancer for Beginners', 'Living With Thyroid Cancer' and 'Relapse!' are available for purchase by clicking on the following links:

Thyroid Cancer for Beginners


Living With Thyroid Cancer





I wrote 'Living With Thyroid Cancer' over a period of 10 years.  It charts the journey from when I first found a lump in my neck in November 2004, through the various surgeries and radioiodine therapies I had to undergo, and brings the reader to early 2014.  By this time I had been in remission for nearly 7 years.  It also includes some chapters on family life as extra interest.  'Living With Thyroid Cancer' incorporates my first book 'Thyroid Cancer for Beginners', and also includes many extra chapters to bring readers up to date. 

I have suffered two more

relapses since 'Living With Thyroid Cancer' was published, one in September 2014, and another in January 2017.  You can read about them in my new e-book 'Relapse!' which was published on  29th August 2017.  It also includes the legacy of symptoms that thyroid cancer leaves behind.  It is also available as a paperback:  http://bookShow.me/1549620711
