In 2006; I got the writing bug; after producing quite a collection of work I put it together in paperbacks and raised money for Charities/Organisations. I have now had my work read out on BBC local radio, printed in magazines, local and regional newspapers, printed in anthologies.had a series of work published in the local press, been on local and regional Radio reading out my work. After attending some local open-mic events, being asked if my books are available, they can now been purchased at; Thackeray’s Books Arts & Crafts, Denton, Manchester. Hope you enjoy this sample


Combat Congestion When cycling or driving these days on the street Obstacles, road narrowing, are things that we meet Restrictions and speed humps, cameras to boot Bus lanes; Taxis only; allowed down this route Traffic lights and Pelicans, Zebras are seen Every few hundred feet, on some roads I’ve been Got to look out for the signs all the day Get caught by a camera; bill on its way Squeeze all the traffic, down to one lane Congestion builds up; hours down the drain Sat there in traffic fumes all around Pollution in cities increasing we’ve found Managing traffic a headache for some But cutting down usage; of road space is dumb Worldwide disruption Not war, just terror fighting the foe Which way they come at us, no one can know Non-conventional this evil, that disrupting life Under the auspice of religion committing world strife Bombing, disruption, reducing their grip Yet indoctrination, young thoughts that they tip Recruiting for killers, in no name but theirs Disowned in great numbers, it’s the real world that cares Working together; differences aside The only solution in restoring world pride

excellent work at Inside Out man. I was thoroughly entertained throughout. I can't believe you say you don't read often yet you had such a relaxed and easy vibe on stage- very charismatic and hugely enjoyable. Please let me know when your reading round Manchester way next, your stuff is brilliant and it was a joy to watch you perform. well done fella
