My Writings




Please read a bit of what I have written over the years. Some of the poems below are quite old and might not reflect where I am now. However, they are a part of me in that they are representative of a time in my life.

Over recent years, my writing activities have expanded to include commissions of personalised sentiments for memoriams and special occasions.

Unfortunately, most of these occasions have been sad ones and I would take this opportunity to say that I accept commissions for happy occasions too!

To commission a piece of writing, simply email me with a brief description of what you are looking for and we will go from there.

My book “The Circle” is now available to buy online.

My poetry in this book presents a twenty-five year journey through good days and bad.

You can buy The Circle as Paperback and as eBook.

It’s strange the way life goes

At a funeral I said hello to a baby of a friend...
