I was born in Nottingham, then moved away before I was 1. Since lived all over. Asia, South America, Thetford. I now live in an old church in the Scottish Highlands. It is falling down. Sometimes I wear a kilt. www.lochcarronchurch.com

I studied creative writing at university in 2015/18

I write in various genres.

I have a novel on Amazon, am working on three more.

Like to write short stories.

At the moment all my poems are confessional or avant-garde.

I'm dyslexic.

If there is a shortening of my works here I am willing to share a link for the full texts for people who are interested and hopefully give feedback.
