I was born in Yorkshire but now live in Herefordshire.

My first poetry collection ‘Scumbled’ was published by Cinnamon Press  in 2015, and launched at the Ledbury Poetry Festival. It was awarded Highly Commended in the Fledgling Award 2016.


 I have been published widely in poetry journals and on-line poetry ezines, and included in some excellent anthologies. I have read at Wenlock, Cheltenham, and Ledbury Poetry Festivals, and been the invited poet at various poetry evenings.

I have a Masters in CW (Poetry) from the University of Gloucestershire, a Diploma from the Open University, and I currently run Herefordshire’s Poetry Society ‘Stanza’ group.

I enjoy photographing floors, walls, windows and ceilings, and love liquorice, graveyards and flat lands.
