Writer, Musician and Community Artist
I am interested in producing work that explores myth, place and the human condition. Over the past decade I have produced a range of work including plays for community theatre productions, three volumes of poetry, and a short film for a multi-media project working with artists, poets and film-makers.
The Ninth Wave is a re-imagining of The First Branch of The Mabinogion. I moved the location from Wales to the east coast of England and placed it in the near future rather than the ancient past.
Poems from the Swamp explores the different levels of life in an urban place from the behaviour of the people to the impact of the past and the power of the elements.
A Requiem written in partnership with the Alan Barnes Octet premiered in February 2019 toured throughout the late summer and autumn in the UK.
I also write for children and schools and have a number of storybooks and resources available in the online shop.
