My poems have appeared in many magazines and other publications, twice being featured in Envoi. and on London's busses. I have participated in events including National Poetry Day at the London Probation Service. I am currently working on a sequence which I hope will form the basis of a collection.

I also enjoy writing poetry for children. I have seventeen grandchildren (at the last count) so try them out on them first.
