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

To Mark the centenary of WW1, the London based poetry group, Beyond Words, run by Angela Brodie and Caroline Vero, have created an event, A Blackbird Sings, comprising contributions from poets and artists along with music and photos, and I will be reading one of my poems, 'Passchendaele', on the night.
If you are free on the evening of Tuesday 6th November, and are interested, why not come along to the Gipsy Hill Tavern?
Beyond Words offers a warm welcome and holds regular monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of every month, featuring a wide range of talented poets.
