Now living in Somerset. Have five adult children and five Grandchildren. Also love painting and gardening.
Have been writing poetry for approximately twenty five years. Never consciously write on a subject, but rather 'as the spirit moves'. Usually don't make any adjustments to scanning, rhyme or rythm, just keep scribbling as fast as I can to catch the words as they come from somewhere.
Among my favourite poets are Longfellow, Betjeman and Pam Ayres.
