About

I have been writing poetry and flash fiction since 2013; I also enjoy listening to others prose and poetry at the monthly open mic evening, click Guernsey Poets for more details.

The beautiful island of Guernsey with her 30 square miles of winding country lanes and serene valleys flanked by stunning cliff walks and beaches continue to inspire my writing; as do the many other fantastic places my wife and I have had the good fortune to visit.

I entered two titles into the flash fiction category of the Guernsey Eisteddfod 2016, Dilemma: awarded a first class certificate, The man in the moon: awarded a merit certificate. In the poetry category I entered a poem titled, Yellow: also was awarded a first class certificate.

Guernsey
is lapped 
by the waves of
the English Channel
and she lies just off the 
Northern coast of France,
with eighty or so miles by crow
 you'll land on the Southern English coast.
With tales of privateering, witchcraft
 and folk from the secretive Fae world;
all mingling with the money that ebbs and flows
through the houses of a financial persuasion.
And all of this rubs shoulders
with the visitors that grace
our beautiful
 welcoming
shores.
