My name is James Andrew Fraser, I reside in Inverness. The Capital of the Highlands of Bonnie Scotland. I am separated, with four lovely children. Andrew, Steven, Rebekah and Liam.
I work in the sales industry, primarily to Scottish Fish Farms and Processing Plants. I also look after an Engineering Company in my customer portfolio.
I am a big fan of Football/Soccer and I support Glasgow Rangers and Everton. My three sons play the beautiful game, and all the kids support Arsenal.
Poetry is so new to me, I have been writing for just under a year now, but I look forward to writing to well into the future. My preferred topics are fantasy and nature, but I do try to broaden my choices as my poetry to present shows.
My main hobbies apart from poetry are Music and Art. Many years back I used to do copies of Album Covers, especially fantasy ones, as I marvelled at the likes of Roger Dean and Storm Thorgerson. You can find their work on the Albums of Yes and Pink Floyd respectively.
The bands that I like are many, Pink Floyd, Marillion, Wishbone Ash, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Journey, Foreigner, Heart, Allman Bros, Ann Vriend, Amy MacDonald and so many more. And I love writing to music, nothing beats it in my eyes.
I thoroughly enjoy nature, and I do hope much of it is around for my children, and their childrens children. I would hate their legacy to end up a barren planet, because of our inhumanities to life around us.
Much of the poetry on the Soup is on my website www.thehighlanderspoems.com and without the Soup, I very much doubt this site would have been created.
My motto in life is, " You don't have to stand on someone to be taller than them "
