My debut poetry collection, Kidland, will be published by Salmon in April 2011. This website will be thoroughly overhauled and redesigned before then to mark the occasion, so do check back for progress.

Over the last fifteen years I’ve written uncountable numbers of poems. Some of them have seen publication in magazines including Envoi, Iota, Reach, The Lighthouse, Staple, Poetry Life, Agenda and nthposition. I've won a couple of prizes too.

I would gladly see all my non-fiction books go out of print if, in exchange, I could write just one truly great poem that would stand the test of time. Greatness, though, is not really the point – and neither is publication. Truth is the point; truth and a sense of connection to something larger than myself; to The Source, if you like.

If this sounds like pretentious rubbish you should probably go back to the journalism section of this website, which has Facts on it and may make you feel more comfortable. If not, dip in.
