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.

Old Man

The face is gnarled and full of wear,
The eyes are pools of gathered time,
as frail the body forward leans
extending arm and hand to task,
the feeble grip that lifts the cup
to lips that trembling sip
attempts to pause; to savour taste,
but fingers weak with weight
lower the burden of lifting.

[Hata Bildir]
