Biography of Alan Waterhouse
Born, England 1964 in a working class family. Grew up a loner with few friends but a superb imagination that filled many fantasy filled hours of play. As a child my father encouraged me to learn music as he played in many local brass bands and adult I learnt to play guitar. I have always loved to read literature enjoying all the classics at an early age. I started to write poetry after the second of my two children was born about 20 years ago. Finding a voice for my work was difficult as was building the confidence to let people read it. Some of it is introverted but I like to think others can relate to the sentiment and maybe realise that whilst were are individuals, we are not alone in the way we feel.

The Brown Critiqe
As the day changes to the next
I find a cloak of darkness before me
So rich and so deep it affords those who wear it
a shroud of anonymity
And those who do adorn it become as deep and dark
in heart as it was once itself.
Though I hide my mortality well
I encompass this sea of darkness
