About This Author

I'm 70 years old and have a passion for life! I'm an author of 5 books and have just written my first novel 'A Collision of Two Worlds'. It's a romance with numerous twists and turns in the plot and many readers tell me they can't put it down. I love being a performance poet in southeast London and Kent and I regularly feature on BBC Radio Kent. I've lived and worked on 3 different islands. The first was, La Gomera, a small but stunning sub-tropical island in the Canaries, where I spent 22 months writing lots of poetry and making copious notes for my first book, ‘When the Spirit Moves You’, an autobiographical travel book with humour and tragedy included. I then moved to Malta and lived there for 15 months with fantastic views of Mellieha Bay and Malta’s tiny sister island, Gozo. Gozo had many writers, artists, musicians and poets living there and I enjoyed being a member of Poetry on Gozo. I lived on this magical island for 4 years, until 2008 and I returned there in 2015 for 2 1/2 years. it was amazing to be able to live and work next to the turquoise ocean. In between living on these islands I lived in Broadstairs and Ramsgate on the southeast coast of England where I wrote 'On the Dickens' Trail'. I have belonged to the Broadstairs Folk Week Poets for many years. After nineteen years of being a bit of a nomad I decided to move back to be near my beautiful family in the London Borough of Bexley where I now reside.
