Who am I?

I am a writer of contemporary poetry. I was born in Birmingham in 1943. I read Law at Bristol University, followed by five years’ legal publishing experience. After a move to Yorkshire and a period of illness, I began to develop as a writer. For twenty years I co-ran The Poetry Business with Peter Sansom, editing and publishing Smith/Doorstop Books and The North magazine, and running Writing Days and the Writing School. Now retired, I spend my days learning how to do nothing.

I have had four full collections. Listening to Dancing and Women Who Dye Their Hair are published by Smith/Doorstop Books. My third collection, Brittle Bones, was published by Salt in July 2008.

My latest collection, Life and Other Terms, is published in June 2015 by Shoestring Press.
