ABOUT ALAN ROSE

The author took his first degree in chemistry at the end of the second world war. He then developed an interest in biochemistry, and after working in research biochemistry, was advised to go and take a degree in medicine, which he completed in 1954. After two Hospital house jobs, he spent his remaining career years in clinical research, studying at different times inborn errors of metabolism, metabolic bone diseases such as osteoporosis, vitamin D resistant rickets and hyperparathyroidism. Finally he did a lot of work on formation and prevention of renal stones. He wrote some 200 or more original papers and in the last 10 years before retirement travelled the world as an invited speaker at many conferences. After retirement from the NHS in 1990, he expected a quiet life, but it was not to be. After 3 enjoyable months as visiting professor in the Sultanate of Oman , he met up with one of his former research biochemists who asked him to join in opening the London Gender Clinic. This proved to be the most controversial matter he had ever undertaken and forms the basis of part one of this book. In addition, his medicolegal work as expert witness in drink-driving matters, expanded enormously, and this work forms the basis of part two of this volume.

The secret came out a few years ago: Parker Knight is gay. Now Parker is sixteen, and everyone has either embraced it, does not care, or has forgotten—everyone except for Dylan Baker. He is determined to make Parker’s life miserable. Parker really thought killing himself would make everything better. If he was dead, he would not have to get kicked around by Dylan and his friends anymore. He would be free. Now, after a failed suicide attempt, Parker just wants to get through the last few months of tenth grade and stay as far away from Dylan as possible. What’s worse is Parker is secretly in love with his best friend, Liam Eriksson. But luckily, Liam doesn’t know this. Parker does not want to risk losing the friendship by telling him his true feelings. But as a tragedy overshadows his already complicated life, Parker soon discovers that the truth has a habit of surfacing in unexpected ways. Parker is the poignant story of one boy’s struggle for acceptance as he reaches out for hope, life, forgiveness and Liam.

As we age and grow from the time we are born we become pulled into the net of “should,” “don’t” and “can’t.” We lose the true nature of ourselves as the picture of our personality is painted by others. At some point, we must take back our lives and awaken the possibilities that have been long buried. In You’re Not the Boss of Me, author Alma C. Lightbody provides a one-step-at-a-time guide to help you see your life from a new perspective.

Using personal examples from her own life, Lightbody shows you how to take responsibility for your choices, find your own truth about what really matters to you and stand up for what you believe. This manual presents definitions and information about how influences from various stages in your life imprint and mould your personality and discusses how your body speaks to and communicates with you. It can also help you to understand the energetic and physical systems that support you, as well as guide you through the charts of possibilities.

You’re Not the Boss of Me leads you to think your own thoughts and have your own opinions to help you be healthy and happy.
