I am an author, poet, playwright, blogger and performer (mainly performance poetry) living in Blackpool. I grew up in Brighton and moved to the Fylde coast in the late 80's. I'm not opposed to traditional publishing and would like it if a publisher came along and said "Hey, we love your work, here's a deal" But I'm not very good at courting publishers or agents and as such have chosen the self-published route to market. Mathamagical: An Alice in Wonderland Styled Tale set in the Land of Mathematics; and it's sequel; Mathamagical II - Anagramaphobia: at word's end; are both available on Amazon. As is my first publish collection of Poetry; The Book of Colin: A Complete (at time of going to press) Collection of Poetry. I am heavily influenced by music with Pink Floyd; Roger Waters; Radio Head; Yazoo and Soft Cell being only a fraction of my all time favourites. On the wordy side of life I have to say Jeremy Lloyd; Spike Milligan; Monty Python; Stewart Lee; Douglas Adams; Lewis Carroll; Roald Dahl; Stephen King; Clive Barker; Eddie Izzard... oh so many. Please, find my work and hopefully enjoy it. Maybe I'll see at a performance one day, who knows.


From Soundcloud They call me a man Even though I’m thinking I am truly nothing Just a jumbled bunch of molecules They call a man How can I have substance? When you don’t even see me Acknowledge my existence And tell me who I am Am I of the fallen? Cast out from the heavens Battered bruised and bleeding: A demon on the earth? You can touch my body I’m solid and I’m feeling I just need you to see me Lying here upon the dirt. But please don’t ask me questions My answers can’t be trusted The stories that I tell you Are twisted and benign. And now I stand here naked My wall is all in tatters That jumbled bunch of molecules. They call me a man
