a bit about me:

I'm a freelance writer/ editor and poet who lives in Shropshire. I've been writing since I was a teenager and have worked variously as a teacher, literature development worker and poetry promoter.


These days I'm the manager of Offa's Press and run workshops in green spaces and places. To find out more and see my books for sale go to 'Brief Biography & My Books'. To read some of my writings click on 'My Poetry'. To see the services I offer go to 'Services Offered'.

I've won various prizes and awards for my poetry over the years and was commended in the Michael Marks Environmental Poet of the Year Award, 2022. For the judges' comments go to 'What People Have Said'.

My poem 'Access' has been nominated for the Forward Prize, 'best single poem' category, for 2024.
