Here you will find news about my various publications & activities and examples of my writing. My work rises out of my intense interest in the natural world, art, mythology and history.
I write poetry & prose, long & short, for children & adults. I enjoy collaborating with other creatives and writing in response to particular objects, places & themes. Basically, I love variety in my creative life.
As an experienced teacher and workshop leader, I'm also able to deliver creative activities to all ages and help everyone feel that they have tapped into their potential as a writer.
I hope you enjoy finding out more!

The Arrowsmith Trilogy- complete at last
'A Charm of Goldfinches' is complimented by poetry
Until the 17th February, a flock of goldfinch paintings are roosting at The Gateway Arts Centre in Shrewsbury. This exhibition is inspired by the famous painting by Carel Fabritius and our experience of nature during lockdown. I wrote a poem about this fascinating artwork which is now on display alongside the work of local and national artists. It explores the tragic circumstances around the painting.

Flocks of Words flies again
After selling-out the initial print run in 2020, Flocks of Words is back!
Shortlisted for the Rubery Book Award Poetry Category in 2018, Flocks of Words is my first poetry collection. Several of its poems have won prizes, been published or anthologised. And I enjoyed performing many of them with the acoustic band Whalebone as part of our collaboration from 2017-2019. Signed copies are available to buy from my website shop for £7.99 +P&P.
