Originally from Yorkshire, I've lived in London since 1998 and am a member of the Forest Poets Stanza in Walthamstow. I've had three collections of poetry published by the Paekakariki Press: Euphrasy (2012), Walthamstow (2015) and To London (2017). I work for the charity Carers UK where I have coordinated an annual creative writing and photography competition.
My latest book, To London, was published in June 2017 and features illustrations by artist Kirsten Schmidt. It is available from Paekakariki Press, The Riverside Bookshop, Brick Lane Bookshop, E17 Art House, Here On Earth and online.
To mark 1,000 sales of my Walthamstow and To London books, I have recently returned to my first (creative) love of photography and produced a series of prints of the poems and photos which are available through my online shop at Etsy.
