I am, therefore I write. I was raised in Upper Wortley, then Bramley, West Leeds. Studied English Teaching at the (then) Huddersfield Polytechnic 1970-74. Worked 6 years at Doncaster as a secondary school English Teacher.
In 1982 I moved to Humberside where I worked for 24 years as a Careers Adviser before taking retirement. That was not a very poetic job so in my spare time I have kept on writing.
Love Keats, Hopkins etc. English Literature was one of my A Levels (1970) and my main Degree subject.
However, I simply enjoy creative writing when the urge takes me. more »

A Better Way
There has to be a better way.
Than endless warring,
And committing countless crimes:
Robbing Peter to pay Paul.
The home of God,
In all its splendour.
I say again:
Heaven is in us,
