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.
In this endless cycle of fashion,
the poets rise in praise
of whatever is the moments craze,
chanting words with pompous passion.
But empty are the hearts of men
who follow fads and latest trends,
who in truth cannot defend
the whims of such a fickle pen.
