Profile Information

Welcome to my page!

Married with two crazy kids

Born and raised in a hilly village in the county of South Yorkshire, UK,  in a close family environment. 

The landscape around me proved to be an inspiration, and from an early age I enjoyed creative writing, 

Humour too, was a favourite theme, and I loved to make absurd chains of similar sounding words.

The idea that a poem could be made from nothing tangible, such as wood or brick, intrigued me.

My other interests include playing guitar and writing songs.

I love almost every genre of music as long as it is soulful. 

It's been moving to see all the encouragement shared between writers since I joined the Booksie community..

This has proven to me that self-promotion is only part of why we do this. 

So, my warmest thanks for allowing me to share my poetry with you, and I hope you enjoy my work....or is that 'play'? 

LATEST NEWS! : My illustrated book of poetry entitled 'PAPER DARTS' is now on sale through major online retailers and can be purchased through Wordclay, Amazon, Barnes and Noble etc.The book features 65 poems, divided into 2 sections: Reflective and comedic verse. The ISBN is ; 978-1-6048-1488-0. Would make a good pressie too?      Ricky.
