As you can see in the Latest News column my new book Oradour-sur-Glane will be launched on 18 November. Once it is published I will put up a few extracts for you to read.

My latest book is no suspicious circumstances: portraits of poets (dead). You can read two portrait poems here.

Welcome to my website. Here you will find information about me and my writing, as well as a selection of my poetry. I’ve recently tried my hand at some flash fiction which I’m really enjoying. You can read three pieces here.

I have published two collections of poetry, a verse novel, a chapbook and appeared with two other poets in a book. You can read a selection of poems from Obeying the Call and reviews of the book. My verse novel The Barrier Range was published by Flat Chat Press in July 2006 and reprinted in 2007. You can read praise for The Barrier Range and read excerpts.

You can also read some of my more recent poetry, specifically an extract from a suite of poems The Divorce Papers. You can read a review by Lyndon Walker here. The Divorce Papers was published as a chapbook in 2010 and appeared in Triptych Poets: Issue One. You can read reviews of Triptych Poets and the poem Things to (and not to) do which has been called by one reviewer as “quite possibly the most enjoyable found poem I have ever read”.
