I started writing seriously at eighteen, firstly with songs, then drifted into writing poetry, short stories and finally novels. About six or seven year ago I gave up writing all together. It has only since joining PH in January 2007 that I started writing again thanks for the encouragement I received from a lot friends up here.
In 2006 I was awarded an Outstanding Achievement Award from the International Society Of Poets for my poem Faded Love Letters. The first award I have ever received for any of my writing. The poem has now been include in several anthologies ... more »

    I read one of your poems and I wrote a comment saying that if you became a poet once I would buy your works. I did not know you actually were one already. I just became a member of this website, though I love poetry. I also love music and reading all types of books, so I'm going to read your novels too. One thing I loved about your poems is that I felt a really nice connection to it. Keep writing, though you just gained a fan!
