About


My Portfolio can be found here

I have been writing for many years, starting from fan fiction when I was a child to fiction and then poetry. I have written blogs, essays and articles for websites and publications. As well as product reviews and captions. I have self-published my own creative work and have had poetry published by various literary magazines, journals and presses. Some examples are Vending Machine Press After the Pause Moon Cola Zine Peeking Cat Literary Magazine Fly on the Wall Press

Writing for me is connection and creativity and curiosity. A means of communication.

I write with my own particular brand of poetic insights, based loosely on the subjects of belonging, loss, mental illness, and hope. My work can be humorous, it can be cynical and it can be truthful. It will certainly include a few swear words.

Amongst the poetry on my blog, you will find here reviews and the like on Doctor Who. To say I am a Doctor Who fan would be an understatement. I also write reviews for any other books I have read. I love to read. I love reading books that inspire me to pick up my pen and write about them, and what I have learnt from them. I love to learn, and gain new knowledge. Knowledge feeds into my writing and gives me something to really get stuck into researching and writing about.

Book Review. Teeth in the Back of my Neck by Monika Radojevic.

The subjects of the poems in Teeth in the Back of my Neck by Monika Radojevic include periods, women’s bodies, agency and chronic pain. I love how Teeth in the Back of my Neck can slowly be absorbed, reading the poems and turning them over in my mind and reflecting on what they are saying. … Continue reading Book Review.

Book Review. Sparkling Cyanide by Agatha Christie.

I thought having the one central character in Sparkling Cyanide, that being Rosemary, meant that you got a constant revolving perception of the woman. Each chapter in the first part of Sparkling Cyanide was dedicated to a character who was around the table in a restaurant, when Rosemary takes her own life, and has some … Continue reading Book Review.

Book Review. Rotten Days in Late Summer by Ralf Webb.

The first part of Rotten Days in Late Summer by Ralf Webb had poems with the most concrete imagery and were well crafted. The second part were poems about the narrator’s dad’s illness and were very good too. The third part had poems that I didn’t like and didn’t ‘get’. All in all, Rotten Days … Continue reading Book Review. Rotten Days in Late Summer by Ralf Webb.
