Biography

Many of my poems were inspired when I lived in Ecuador, South America for ten years (1990 to 2000.) I had never written poetry before but the sheer wonder and beauty of that country was a source of sensory stimulation compelling me to write.

After languishing in a government job for over 20 years I now free-lance for a local paper and have a monthly column on creativity.

Other interests include sculpting in clay, fibre art, tai chi, yoga and gardening.
