Firstly thank you for taking the time to read my Bio.
BRIEF BIO - English, male, vegan, buddhist, gardenista!
A LITTLE MORE DETAIL -
I am in my late 50's and live in the UK, I am lucky enough to be retired after working 32 yrs in the public sector. I live with my amazing partner Sarah in sunny Northamptonshire and have two beautiful grown up daughters.
Around 2012 I suddenly had this urge to write and finally put pen to paper. What came out was raw, naive and messy but it was a start, I had never been creative in any way before.
Since then my poetry has developed in ways I didn't expect and I am constantly surprised by what comes out. I would still describe my work as naive and in some ways I hope that remains the case.
I try to vary my writing style as much as I can but I am only a bit player as the pen sometimes has a mind of it's own!
I was always worried about reading other people's work for fear of it influencing my writing. A silly position that I have now rectified, I will support new writers as much as I can and look forward to comments on my own work. This poetry thing is a journey and I'm finally ready see where it takes me.
Write your heart out and be kind, thanks again, Tony.
