I'm a married 60 year old Brit who lives near Liverpool, UK.
I started writing poetry as a hobby after taking retirement from my role as a Registered Mental Health Nurse working in the field of Brain Injury Rehabilitation.
Themes of the seaside, railways and the naivety of childhood crop up often in my poems and I like to write (usually in rhyme) just what I see, no matter how trivial that may be.
Although some of my work is based on my own personal experiences, I try to focus on imagery and places in time that are identifiable to the reader as well.
I also enjoy 'weaving' stories through my work and occasionally put my own spin on the classics.
Other than at school, the only poems I have ever written are those that you can read here at Poetry Soup.
If you have the time to view and comment on any of my work here then I would really appreciate it. I'm always open to constructive criticism.
