I’ve always written lyrics and when I was young these included some pretty bad ones! But lyrics can rest in the music, hide under the melody, get absorbed in the backing. When I achieved my masters in music composition I started taking an interest in the rhythm and sounds of words on their own. So began the first forays into poetry.

My inspiration is nature but mixed with a slightly warped interpretation of what I see. Exploring what is reality and how we interpret this through our senses.

I was please to have some of my poems selected in the recent “For The Many Not The Few” anthologies. Volumes 10 and 11 can be bought on Amazon. The collaborations contain an exciting and eclectic mix of modern poetry.
