Presently I live in Glasgow, but have lived in many places (the picture
above is of Muthill where Irene lived before moving to Glasgow) including
Melbourne, Australia where I attended university and took my doctorate in
Comparative Literature from Monash University. I have had my work published
in the UK, USA and Australia. As well as my poetry, I am currently working
on a profile of the American poet, Charles Simic, and have completed a
monograph on the poet Geoffrey Hill.
