Hi - I mostly write poetry and was proud to be a runner up in Poet's Pub, Pubber of the Year Competition. I've just completed an extended poem, Margaret's Story, that tells my mum's life story in verse. It's an ambitious project, a biography in rhymed verse, so great if you could check that out.
Otherwise it's back to basics - I've just launched my new collection 'Third Verse' and will be updating daily.
My first collection Summer Sun Winter Rain was featured and my Second collection Second Wind recently ranked 12 in poetry.
My poem Living, Breathing Slough in the Summer Sun collection won a local competition and was broadcast on local radio and BBC Radio Four. My second collection Second Wind is an eclectic collection of mostly light hearted poems but often has a serious message and takes the occasional side swipe at politicians and those in power.
I'm British but have travelled a lot and like to write about India and other places I've been as well as about home and world events.
I've also ventured into prose I attempted the JustWriteIT challenge with my TrueStory Flooded and am working on Down To Earth God; a book about God for people who 'don't do God.'
