I started writing angst-fuelled poetry when I was a teenager (in the eighties) but as I grew up I realised I was running out of angst and had to find something else to write about.
I carry a notepad.
I began writing prose in 2000; initially it was little more than poems with the line breaks taken out— I hope it is more elegant now.
I studied creative writing with Chris Torrance in Cardiff University at the end of his 26 year stint as a tutor; John Evans in Clwb Y Bont in Pontypridd; and Lynne Barrett-Lee in Cardiff University. I would love to start an MPhil in September 2013.
10 Fortunes I would not like to find in a cookie: You will be pregnant, this is the last cookie you will have, swimming was never your thing, this cookie may contain cyanide, casualty is not that bad, you are being watched, check your plumbing, do not open your fridge, run, you are fired!
When I left the pension review I gave my boss a sonnet of resignation.
I did a degree in Electronic Music which I completed in 1997.
I intend to make a post on my my blog once every four days – but I won’t post if I have nothing to say.
I have a love of photography and my photos can be seen here.
One day I would like to write a post apocalyptic novel.
I love to talk to other writers and I am always up for a writing challenge or collaborative project. Please feel free to contact me; I don’t bite.
