Hydra Bookshop are now stocking my collected poems 'Making adjustments for life expectancy'. 

I've recently had a couple of poems published, with 'THE FOX' in Turbulence magazine (Issue 15) and 'THE ISLAND' in Roundyhouse magazine issue 40, with 'ON A FIELD IN WILTSHIRE' coming in the Spring edition of Sarasvati magazine. Decanto and Saravati will also be advertising the book in the coming months.


 'Making adjustments for life expectancy' is written in four chapters interlinking two different themes throughout each chapter, I wanted to try and capture a life through poetry, like a writing lens that's never switched off, with a mix of beautiful lines, imagery, and gritty realism, that continues to haunt you long after the reading of the poems is done, with poems on topical themes, on nature, modernisation, culture, travel, mortality, love, and war.  The collection spans the last twenty years, some of the poems included have being published in magazines, such as Dwang 2, Square, Graffiti, Cutting Teeth, Understanding, Roundyhouse, Seventh Quarry, The Delinquent, Monkey Kettle, Sarasvati, The Ugly Tree, Connections, Krax, The Dawntreader, and many more.
