I have been a member of ABCtales since 2003.
I have  published five collections of poems: ‘Idle Thoughts’; ‘Reflections’; 'Cherry Ripe''; 'Poetry on Tap' and 'Cherry on Top' plus 'Guns and Dolls' – a short book containing three short stories – and three novelettes 'Jessica World', 'An Enquiring Mind' and 'A Life's Journey'
Digital versions of these can be found at Smashwords. and other distributors like Kobo and Barnes and Noble.

I was a member of Writers Group and indie publishers I*D Books based in Shotton, Flintshire until they ceased activity.
My work has been featured in various magazines and anthologies.

A regular contributor to ABCtales.com I also contributed to the websites Poetry24 and UKAuthors.co.uk. I was ‘Writer of the Month’ on the latter in December 2005.

Thanks for bringing to my attention the name of Bruce Dawe who was unfamiliar to me.  I shall endeavour to delve into his work. The only Australian I knew of and whose poetry appealed to me was Clive James.

In my younger days my handwriting was good, even if I say so myself, but with the advent of technology I came to rely on word processing for my writing and emails for correspondence. All my fountain pens, including the Rotring that I used to draw...

I hope you haven't been affected by the storm. Here we had a lot of rain and moderate wind but nothing drastic. Let's hope for better conditions.
