An experienced creative writing tutor and mentor, I’ve had two full collections of poetry published, with a third due out in 2018; gained a PhD in Creative Writing titled: “An Exploration of Identity and Environment through Poetry” from Lancaster University and been widely anthologized. 

Pamphlet collections include The Skin, Passio, Poems of a Molecatcher’s Daughter. Full collections published by Indigo Dreams Pubs. are: The Other Side of the Bridge, Salt Road, and upcoming one in 2018 titled Passing Through

Travels and readings have taken me to Europe and North America, where I’ve read at a variety of venues on the East and West coasts and also the Mid West.
