Biography of K.C. Ford

I spent the first ten years of life in the small village of Crowle, before moving to the steel town of Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire. Leaving school, a variety of jobs followed, including tea boy on a building site, labouring to bricklayers and plasterers, periods of industrial painting, platelayer, sand blaster and factory work.
I spent around ten years on mainland Europe, working wherever and at whatever I could find. I have been married twice and am now divorced. I live in Hull, North Humberside.

K.C. Ford's Works:

Stranger than the Rest (a novel) and a poetry book entitled Essence of Days. Both of these books are self published as I have no desire to spend the next ten years sending synopses to sleepy eyed publishers.

Under oak and elm and ash,
Spring green grows over grass.
The stem, the bough, the branch, the leaf
restricts the sun as bars a thief.

As prison walls the shade casts down
across the brow, the eyes, the frown
of all the men in fading grey
shuffling through the endless day.
