Prison visit

This time tomorrow I will be in prison! Not that I have done anything serious to deserve my incarceration – just having a story to tell. I will go into Guernsey Prison to talk about my experience of pain, critical illness and recovery, as part of their Sunday worship service. I’m told that numbers are quite good at these events as it is one of the few occasions prisoners get out of their cells and blocks.

Chronic ill health is a kind of prison too. You feel that your body – or maybe your mind – is locking you in. Pain yells at you if you step out of line and try to do too much. Life is limited and socialising becomes difficult. Isolation, which is now such a common thing in this pandemic, becomes a tool in the hand of Satan, afflicting you with feelings of worthlessness and rejection. I am so glad that my faith enabled me to break out of that prison long before my body was healed or my pain relieved. Find out how, and what helped me with that, by getting hold of my book Through the Storms. Email me at for a signed copy today.

Hi. I live in the fabulous Channel Islands - a place of outstanding natural beauty. I believe in the spoken and written word - the gift of the gab and the mighty pen (or laptop). My UK Masters degree is in Theology and my PhD is in communication. I have published five books so far, and my new one, 'Through the Storms; a manual for when life hurts' is out now. I am an ordained minister, a trained broadcast journalist and radio producer, as well as a 'passionate' preacher. So, let's get communicating!
