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


Election on on on Brexit drove us bonkers, are we in or out? Referendum over democracy spoke, leave it was the shout Just plodding along quite nicely, then Theresa May I want a bigger mandate, win win all the way Cause Jeremy and his party, were in a real big stew All at sixes and sevens, two challenges he came through So again off to the country, formality of a vote You can't, predict the feeling, a hole put in the boat May was left in disarray, majority has deflated Corbyn chuckled to himself, still lost but was elated Still more seats, after all the fuss, Theresa off to the Queen Apathy confusion is the best, on this we tend to lean EU talks not far away , strong and stable we feel So now it's off to Brexit, to negotiate a deal Worldwide disruption Not war, just terror, fighting the foe Which way they come at us, no one can know Non_conventional this evil, that's 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, its 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
