I am the third son of a large post war Catholic family, born in the West Riding of Yorkshire who, for the past 28 years, has lived in a Staffordshire village with my wife, family and a series of 5 female cats! Practised in the intricacies of a Sunday altar boy, like many a teenager, I subsequently lapsed into quiet agnosticism and occasional church observance until, approaching 50 and by then a successful IT professional, circumstances led me to attend a local evangelical Pentecostal church and the (re)igniting of my faith.
My first volume of poetry has just been republished as "Start to Finish - The books of the Bible in poetry" on Amazon in both paperback and ebook format.
This collection comprises 66 poems from Genesis to Revelation with one poem for each book of the Bible alongside "Wordle" images drawn for the text of each book.
My second anthology based on the Gospels will be published later in 2018. Further details and my weekly blog can be found on my new web site and facebook page
