Thank you for visiting my site. If you were searching for lemons or ink then you will be feeling disappointed by now.  Sorry. I’m not famous but there’s still time …


I’m not sure how much you need to know about somebody to understand or enjoy their work? I was a northerner until I moved to Scotland.


Sometimes I am grammatically incorrect and I blame my wobbly spelling on a system called i.t.a. which I learned at infant school.  


The way people use language fascinates me and I make no apologies for using “bad” language. At one (particularly inspiring) writing workshop the tutor (Philip Gross) asked us to write a list of words that we would never use in a poem. The only word I wrote down was “really”. So I really hope something on my site inspires you to write or read or listen more than you did before.
