I've been writing poetry and prose for around twenty years.  Now that I am retired, I am developing and sharing my work.  I particularly enjoy putting words and images together.  I also like to design books.  I use my own photographs and collaborate with artist, printmaker and friend, Karen Slater.  I publish my work through Blurb Books UK.  There are fifteen books currently on my 'bookshelf'.   You can preview all my work in the Blurb bookstore, free of charge, by clicking the links.  You can download the E-book versions to read on your own device free of charge.


My most recent work can be found on the New Writing and New Non-fiction pages.  


Poetry & fiction includes my recent collection of short stories Hagiography 1 & 2 and poems In My Hands.  There are also Collected Poems 1996-2017, Triptych, three short stories, and Otherworld, a novella.

Words & images includes Uneased, a collection reflecting on 'lockdown' as well as six more 'photo books' which are collections of poetry, prose and life writing with images.

Non-fiction includes Holding the Conversation - a practical guide for facilitators, and Venturing into the Labyrinth, a personal appreciation of the films of Pedro Almodovar.
