‘The Voice In My Head Is Perfect’

By Lindy Jones (1955–2014)

“Parallel Lies” by Lindy Jones

I wrote this little novel about ten years ago. It’s fiction but very loosely based on my correspondence with a Death Row prisoner. Alas I couldn’t find a publisher. If you want to have a look you can download the book here . It’s totally free; a literary gift from me to posterity. Download Parallel Lies

“Can’t Cry any More” by Lindy Jones

A novel of teenage love. Sensitive Kate falls for troubled Alex. She loves him and, in his way, he loves her, but it is not to be. The intensity of teenage emotions, verging on melodrama.

Lindy Jones, a former English teacher, makes it clear from the beginning that battling with a terminal diagnosis (motor neurone disease) is never going to be easy, particularly when you are a hypochondriac whose cries of “I’m not well” have finally come true.

As muscles start to lose their strength and she loses the ability to talk and eat we see her descend into self-pity, despair and temperamental outbursts. Always the drama queen, the role of ‘tragic heroine’ is one she can now fully embrace and excel in.

Recounted with self-deprecating humour, and with Scrappy the Rescue Dog by her side, she writes about her experiences living life in the strange new world of serious illness whilst exploring her previous one as an energetic teacher and healthy person.

Moving and funny, what a feat.
