Bewildering Stories biography

Recent work has appeared, or is scheduled to appear, in a wide variety of influential magazines in the United Kingdom, including The Coffee House magazine, Pennine Platform, Coffee House, Littoral, The Other, Cambridge University review, Manifold. Poetry Monthly, Interlude, Harlequin, The Black Rose and Carillon.

I am currently working on a collaborative first novel, “Lost Diaries,” which should be completed early next year. I am also writing short stories; one of which has won the Carillon magazine short story competition. A number of poems have been selected for publication in national collections, and my poem “Moon Dreams” was recently short-listed for the national poetry anthology. “Alicia’s Diary” has been nominated for the Pushcart prize 2007.

A small number of poems are currently being transformed into short films as part of a film poetry project, and my poem “Alicia’s Diary” was recently performed in Sheffield Cathedral as part of a Multimedia poetry presentation. Free time is spent walking on windswept Northern hills, working on my photography and drinking too much fine wine and real ale.
