"Along this remote cove bearded by bladderwrack, discarded buoys huddle in netting, jostled on incoming tides."

Christopher Delaney

I was born in 1959, live in St Albans, Hertfordshire, and work as a self-employed gardener and interior decorator.  I sing with the St Albans Chamber Opera choir, and began writing poetry after a 35 year break from creative writing.


Since joining the Ver Poets Society in 2008, a number of my poems have been published in competition anthologies.  My pen drawings of St Albans landmarks are used to illustrate some of the Ver Poets Society's publications.


My debut poetry pamphlet, 'Banking Towards Home', was published in May 2017.
