Welcome to my words ...

There's short stories, lyrical ideas, verse, prose and poetry.

Many thanks for reading and commenting.

I'm a self confessed plastic scouser from Formby, near Liverpool. Some folk say Formby, near Southport. Not me .. no way!! I was actually born in Hull which perhaps renders me a huge liar. Well you would lie if you were born in fishy old Hull!! I've moved house 18 times in 43 years .. 19 if you include womb to midwife! I live in Essex ... move number 20 will be back to my adopted home city of Liverpool. It's quite cool being a Yorkshireman though.

 

I've been featured on the Booksie homepage which is nice!
