My first time on a live Twitch stream for World Poetry Read Aloud day!

Just had a fantastic time on the twitch stream of ‘Sailing Ocelot’. What a fantastic host! She was generous enough to allow me to perform 4 of my poems which I think the audience enjoyed. I wish I had learned them all, as you can’t look at the camera properly when you read them, but…

‘Spare’ time.

Have I read the book? Yes, of course. I am not a royal watcher, fanatic or even much of a fan. I have to confess that when I took a tour through the crown jewels last year, I was slightly sickened as I had just walked past quite a few sleeping bags in shop doorways.…

To the New Year!

So, I am back. Today is one of those days where I just ave no energy and want to spend it hunkered down indoors in a cosy hoodie. I juts spent 1 hour deleting old emails, and I still have 8000 to go. Any suggestions? I find this gives me an utter headache and I…

Dracula’s Guest

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to take a trip to Felixstowe’s Two Sisters Arts Centre to see the play Dracula’s Guest, an adaption of works by Bram Stoker . The play, produced by Brother Wolf Productions starred award-winning actor James Hyland, who wrote the adaption, and also Ashton Spear. I was so impressed! As I…

Jealousy is her small-minded daughter; a shapeless lump, who sits hunched in her infertile cave, fingers poised with her poison pen; follows Envy to…

Today.

Today’s post is in memory of Uncle Richard, who left the earthly life one year ago today. A man with whom I enjoyed chatting about music, guitars, other instruments, lyrics and zany comedy. He could pick up any instrument and play it, and I was waiting for him to try out my violin. What I…

for the 11th hour..

So, a while back I had this poem published in Tourist to the Sun. I wrote it on the 11th November 2019, and it gives a nod to the the fact that as a child I actually lived next door to a man who fought in the First World War. There are few of his…

After shows: the year comes to a close…

It’s been an amazing and eventful year for me personally. I have met some incredible and talented people this year and had the privilege to be able to work with them. At he beginning of the year I was all set to publish my first books. They eventually came out in Summer, as I was…
