I have been writing poems for my family's birthday/ Christmas cards for years, when my son reached his eighteenth birthday I wrote a poem that made me very emotional and touched other that read this, this inspired me to look for a place where I could get some tuition and an insight into writing poetry, I joined the poetry school and purchased an online course which helped me understand different forms, then I became a member of forward poetry where I submitted poems to their community and entered their competitions and seven of my poems were published in their anthologies, unfortunately or fortunately their social community was closed down, luckily I found poetry soup.

I am slightly dyslexic which makes it difficult to impossible for me to read a book as I have to read things twice first to read the words then again to get the pleasure, so poetry especially short poems give me so much pleasure.

I live in the English Country side with my partner of thirty odd years and my two children and a cat, I enjoy my garden especially in spring and summer, I love the countryside and nature.
