A selection of my poetry entitled 'We Cast Pale Shadows' has been printed and is now in stock at Matador. It will be officially published on February 28th 2020. It will also be available as an e-book and can be ordered direct from the publisher and from Amazon, plus all UK bookshops.
This selection of poems illustrates my appreciation of the rich rhythms and natural cadences of the English language, which have inspired me to create poems of linguistic variety and varied poetical structures.
Within the pages of my poetry selection readers will discover poems which were created to engage, move, provoke, inspire and entertain.
'We Cast Pale Shadows' introduces a new and innovative voice in contemporary English poetry.
